How to break writer's block??
From several months I am fighting with my writer's block. I have just finished one book and totally exhausted by it. Although I am writing new things, my soul is carving to get out of this impossible situation. Please help.
Go outside. Go on a trip somewhere, but in a different way of getting there than you normally would go. Try doing something that you've never done before. Go to a dive bar and strike up a conversation with a random person. If you're a bit shy then the bartender is generally easy to talk to.
The world is your muse. Go out there and play.
Going to attend an wedding this weekend . Thanks for the ideas.
You always meet lots of interesting people at a wedding, and it might turn out to be an adventure for you. Just remember that whatever you experience will add to potential ideas for writing.
Just get a pad and paper and write a bunch of nonsense that pops into your head. Keep writing though and try to keep it as part of the story. Writing is a process. It starts with scribbled down thoughts, ideas, and dribble. You'll find your way again. The more you do it, the harder it will be to stop.
I've had this problem before... If I get the "writer's block" it's a sign for me to stop writing for a while. There is no point in struggling with writing, forcing yourself to write when you would rather do anything else. Take a break, don't write at all! Do something else you enjoy, daydream, try to learn something new. Inspiration disappears without a trace sometimes... If you suddenly get struck by inspiration in the meantime, be sure to have a pen and some paper with you.
As Old Empresario said, writing is simply putting scribbled thoughts in line. It's hard and exhausting, but well worth the effort!
I wrote a hub about this a while back, but the best advice I can give anyone who has writers block is to read. If you just finished writing a book, then it is a good idea to take a break for a while, but when you want to get those creative juices flowing again, I've found no better aid than reading. It helps if the thing you're reading is a book in your preferred genre too. You want to enjoy the book and remember why you wanted to write in the first place. So, while you're taking your break, pick up a bunch of books you've been meaning to read and I guarantee you'll find yourself craving the writing process again.
M. T. Dremar, thank you for your valuable advice and I am going to go through your hub on this topic.

I have a friend who explains that the process of writing has three main parts. First is the idea, second is the creative process and third is written form. It seems we have a tendency to try and move from step one to three and to forget the creative process. All the posts here so far are really saying the same thing. The creative part of writing is somehow being ignored. We try to make it mechanical and it just won't work. The only thing mechanical about writing is the pencil/keyboard. So, by all means, read, go for a hike, go camping, pick up a pencil and start doodling. It is all creative and inspires creativity. I like to talk out loud to no one but me. I'm using a different medium to create something to convert into writing.
