We all struggle with writer’s block from time to time. There are a few ways you can try to solve it, but the easiest and simplest way? Move.
There are a couple of ways you can do this
Exercising can help with your writing but I know it’s not everyone’s bottle of energy drink. So if you’re not up for a run, try a walk. Pop downstairs for some nibbles, fold the washing, do a funky dance with your pants on your head! Yeah maybe skip the last one. Just move away from your writing and get your body moving to literally shake yourself up.
Move your writing
For more of a long term impact, try moving where you write. This could simply be putting your desk against a different wall or moving to another room. If you’re lucky enough to have an outside space like a garden or balcony and the weather is co-operating, then try there. If space is at a premium and try going to a park or library, or perhaps try a coffee shop if you need more of a bustling environment. A pen and paper will suffice if you’ve no portable device, but it may even be possible to work off your phone using something like Google Drive.
Getting into a routine helps your writing, getting stuck in a rut won’t. The simple act of writing somewhere different, somewhere new, can be enough to get you inspired again.
