How I Unblock Writer’s Block

Just like many writers I often I experience writer’s block. I get these moments where I can’t write then there are moments when I start to write and can’t stop. I hear Diddy in my head sayin “Can’t stop, won’t stop!”

I get so many ideas in my head and I just want to write away but the writing ideas are for different things. It’s like I suffer from a writer’s form of ADD.  When that happens I start a notebook for each idea so that when I sit down again I can just pick up that notebook and just let it flow. Then there are times when I just draw a blank. What do I do then?

At first, I’d just walk away and do something else.  Then it came to me. Recently I’ve learned that if I close my eyes and take a deep breath, I’ll fall asleep..lol Seriously when I do that, it helps me clear my mind. One of the two things happen:  1. I write about the first thought that comes to mind or 2. I’ll text someone and there will be something in that conversation that will stick out and I’ll write about that. Strange but for me, that works.  And from there I get the juices flowing and get carried away into writing and then when I feel as if I’m done for now…..I realize that, I’ve only gotten up to use the bathroom and for snacks. I’ve also switched from one channel to the next channel for my Law&Order: SVU marathon(which means it is now Sunday) and it means that the next day is Monday and I have to prepare for my work day. What a way to spend the weekend right?! Yes my background music is Law&Order…..

But anywho how do you unblock writer’s block?

 

 

Motivated

I’ve been so motivated as a writer that I am working on two books.  Not at the same time silly.  I get these spurts and I write and can’t stop.  I’ll work on one idea for a while and then bounce to the other one. Again, not at the same time silly person. 🙂

My process is very simple, at least to me it is. When I come up with an idea, I take notes and then, I begin to write. I hand write until I feel as though I’m done.   That way when I stop, I can go back and read and make changes as I go.  For example, if I write 3 chapters and stop, the next day or two, I go back and start from the beginning.  I make changes, if I see fit at that time, then pick up where I left off.  Sometimes I might even read those chapters and the ending may come and I begin to work backwards, working my way back to the beginning. Sounds like I’m all over the place but that’s how I write.  EVEN IF I WORK WITH AN OUTLINE. But enough about my process.  Wait where was I going with this? OH motivation!

As of lately I’ve been so motivated to write.  Like I stated earlier, working on the two books and with this blog.  It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like this and I must say that this motivational feeling that I’m feeling…..Bayyybee!!!!!!!!!

So on that note, let me keep these writing juices flowing and continue to write…..
