Yeah I haven't written in awhile....Writers Block is a b*tch....
I searched the Internet today to figure out how to get over writers block and found some helpful and funny things that I felt like sharing.
My favorite Funny:
The helpful Things:
1) Try writing exercises click this for examples!
2) Take Notes: Write down ideas and phrases as they occur to you, so always carry a notebook.
3) Lastly write! Sit down and write continuously. It doesn't have to be great but writing everything that comes too you and do not delete anything because looking back at it you might find a great idea to continue the story you are trying too tell.
Here are some quotes from famous writers on writers block that I liked:
“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat.’ And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I’m writing, I write. And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come.’” — Maya Angelou
“I encourage my students at times like these to get one page of anything written, three hundred words of memories or dreams or stream of consciousness on how much they hate writing — just for the hell of it, just to keep their fingers from becoming too arthritic, just because they have made a commitment to try to write three hundred words every day. Then, on bad days and weeks, let things go at that… Your unconscious can’t work when you are breathing down its neck. You’ll sit there going, ‘Are you done in there yet, are you done in there yet?’ But it is trying to tell you nicely, ‘Shut up and go away.’” — Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” — Mark Twain
“The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do that every day … you will never be stuck. Always stop while you are going good and don’t think about it or worry about it until you start to write the next day. That way your subconscious will work on it all the time. But if you think about it consciously or worry about it you will kill it and your brain will be tired before you start.” — Ernest Hemingway
“I learned to produce whether I wanted to or not. It would be easy to say oh, I have writer’s block, oh, I have to wait for my muse. I don’t. Chain that muse to your desk and get the job done.” — Barbara Kingsolver
Basically I need to get back to writing.. Maybe just sit and type whatever comes out of my finer tips, something has to come from that and it doesn't have to be decipherable to anyone but me!
