This is my ‘go to’ response whenever writer’s block strikes. I calmly step away from the desk, and find something that could inspire me. If I am writing a story set in a genre, I’ll read the best of that genre that I can find. If I am writing something ‘literary’ (to be honest I think people just write books, but some people love to classify stuff) I’ll seek out some great literature.
If I just feel I need to get my brain out of the rut it has found itself, a beautiful turn of phrase in something I’m reading often helps.
How do you get over writer’s block? Any tips greatly appreciated! ;)
