Should you be struggling with your Work In Progress, there’s one simple way you can shift your writer’s block.

Move.

I don’t mean up sticks and move your entire household, nor do I mean doing a funky dance at your desk (although exercising can help). I mean physically moving yourself and your writing to a different place. You don’t have to go far. You could simply shift to another seat, or try putting your desk against a different wall. If this doesn’t work, moving to another room, a garden, or balcony, might. If you need more of a change, go out to a park or a library, perhaps a coffee shop if you need more of a bustle around you.

Getting in a routine is useful for writing, getting stuck in a rut is not. The simple act of writing somewhere different, somewhere new, can be enough to unplug that uninspired clog and get those creative juices flowing.
