    *PAST a writer's block. Sorry. Grammar nazi.
    It depends on what you write about; I like to write humorous articles and when my funny hormones aren't flowing through my brain like they are supposed to, I feed my brain copious amounts of comedy, from my favorite movies to some of my favorite websites, like or

    Basically, take yourself back to the places that inspired you in the first place.

    1. Make yourself read something that is out of your range of interest. 

    2. Go to a park and do some people watching, observing behaviors.

    3. Practice some tried and true writing exercises.

    4. Read a book about writing: … ve-Writers

    Go for a walk that relieves stress. Sometimes looking at things a different way will help so do something that maybe unfamiliar to you. For example listen to music you wouldn't normally listen to. I'm a musician so this advice works more for me. Try to not stay to comfortable keep that feeling of "new sensation" alive.

    To get past writer's block, I make seven "stops." Mainly, I stop taking myself and my writing so seriously, and this relaxes me.

    Deep breath, relax, lay down. As you rest your head and body the creative energies will start to flow again. Avoid coffee and stimulants of any kind.
