Someone bring me some inspiration and coffee, please

writeres block

I’m not sure what has happened since July began but I haven’t really written much. It feels odd, to not be inspired or creative. Even if I’m not writing I usually have some degree of creativity but being barely able to write a few hundred words is frustrating when I usually get 2000 a day. It feels different from writer’s block though, like the creative spark that usually burns through my mind like a wildfire has become nothing more than embers. Maybe I should just stop writing for a few days let my brain take rest for a few days. Hopefully that will work.

Any ideas to get my spark back, will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Personally, if I get stuck, I take a noun (any noun) and put it in a sentence (subject-verb-object). I find it hard to write about “cows” in general for example, but “The cows were looking up at the sky” is a sentence that will take me suddenly any-and-everywhere! That’s how I do it! It probably wouldn’t work for anyone else!


  2. Sometimes, a break is just what our system needs. If you don’t feel like writing even after a break, try timed freewriting based on prompts. Sometimes, being able to write anything at all feels soothing.
