Calling all writers!

 

This week Tui’s here with some SUPER SMART suggestions on how to beat writer’s block. You know, that feeling you get when you just can’t think of anything to write anymore, maybe because you’ve been eaten by a dragon?

 

Or is that just me? :)

 

What are YOUR tips for beating writer’s block?

And when you Lay Me Down you'll only bury bones

'Cause oh, my heart and soul are going home

Thanks Tui! I love writing and this is amazing and helpful!

 

My Tips that I hope are helpful: (Mostly for getting ideas.)

 

1. Look for inspiration in your everyday life.

2. Simply chill out and think about it.

3. Think about something else for a while.

4. Go back and read/edit what you already have.

 

I hope those tips helped you!

 

I have a question for you too Tui:

 

Do you ever reply on the forums?

 

I wanted to know. Bye and I think you are a great and amazing author!

What I do, try to take a nap.

Me, sometimes I have trouble sleeping, so I try to take a nap and to try to get myself to sleep, I think of how my scene could play out. Eventually, I decide on something, and get so excited I give up on actually sleeping.

Oh gosh, I hate writer's block.  Usually I get stuck for a while, and I read one of my past works or do something completely different before returning to it.

 

(Then again, I try to read my past works fairly frequently.  I dunno why, I guess I really like my own writing.  XD)

-Fanwing

-I LIKE TRAINS

-WHOVIAN!

-writer

-total bookworm ;) 

My tips are:

 

While you're writing, you should listen to inspiring music, and maybe play something you really like. 

 

Go away from it, and maybe read your past works, to see how you handled this problem.

 

Take breaks every hour or so, do something else for a bit, maybe read someone else's work. 

 

Also, I have a question. I'm young, and I would like to try to start writing a book about dragons. The only real inspiration I've gotten is from you, and now I don't know how to change my story from yours.. AUUUUUUUUGHAUGHIFHIIOGOIUADDLIOIAGB

Forum Birthday; 18/7/2015

Great tips, Tui!  :D  These are really good!  I'll be sure to use them.  ^u^

 

I do something similar to a writing log whenever I get writer's block.  I just open up a new file and write down whatever I'm thinking, whether or not it has to do with writer's block or the subject I'm writing about.  Sometimes it's essays about ancient Mesopotamia, and sometimes it's about why my crackship should be canon.  Sometimes it's something absolutely insane, like what I would do if I went to Oz or had superpowers.

 

Another thing I like to do is listen to a song with that has a similar feel to what I'm trying to write.  Whenever I'm writing about my chaotic and highly malevolent RainWing ghost, Fabulous, I listen to Death Waltz, for example.  The song fits him perfectly.

 

Sometimes I'll also try to draw the scene I'm writing, or make a little comic about it.  I also complain a lot to my sister.   >u<  

 

Or sometimes, when it's 4 in the morning and I'm sitting in bed with a blanket tossed over my head and no longer have boundaries with what I feel comfortable writing, I'll throw all caution and common sense to the wind and open up a new file to write a  cliched, self-inserted shipfic.  After I've gone as far as I can, I read over it and immediately cringe at how awful it is.  I think about how I know I can do better than that, and use that thought to fuel myself.

Strangly, I interrogate my puppy. Somehow, his adorable expressions help me to move on my story. I even have a key for what each of his action mean.

 

Bark: Throw the villain in there.

 

Growl: Misc. monster

 

Lie down (not on commend): Skip to night. Or get it to night in some other way.

 

Wink: Add a secret.

 

Blink: Tell a secret.

 

Nothing: Perfect

 

Sit (Not on commamd): So... booooooooring.

I usually go and draw either the character I'm writing about or just something, drawing helps me a ton.

Either that or I go and listen to music and just relax for a few minutes with my cats, it also seems to help!
