I was in a writing slump for a while, until yesterday, when the ideas came flooding in. How do you stop writing blocks and spread out the ideas?
1. Listen to yourself. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to please others we don’t please ourselves. Instead of writing topics close to your heart, we try to write about “hot topics.” Trust me; stories turn out much better when you listen to YOUR heart.
2. I go outside. Something about nature just generates ideas. Find that place. I promise you; it will help. Jot down what ideas you’re thinking of, and make it happen once you get back home.
3. Don’t focus too much on it. You don’t have to think about writing 24/7. That will cause your block to last even longer. Go on with your life, have fun, and you will start writing again.
4. If these don’t work, maybe it’s for a reason. A great story can’t be written in two minutes. It takes time. Your brain could be building up the plot currently; you just don’t know it yet. Don’t rush creativity.
I hope these help and ily all(:
