Writers bloc .... Aaaaahhhhhh! Any idea how to get rid of it, it's so frustating.

It's been weeks now. I feel soooo .... FULL. There's no other way to say this. Full of emotions I want to put down on paper so badly, but it's just not coming out. *banging my head on the desk*

  • I know how you feel I get that way when I am working on my Romance Novel that I am writing. I usually just grab another notebook and start writing down stuff until I get the inspirationback for my story back then go back to my story.

  • Just start writing what ever words come to your head, eventually it will turn into something constructive.

  • I do exactly what DevillnPigtails said, I just start writing, sometimes I end up with a lot of junk, but eventually something good starts to come out.....

  • Actually, there are a couple of other things I do....I like to go for long walks at the beach or in the park with a notebook, fresh air tends to clear my head, sometimes I'll listen to music....something that just suits my mood......and there are times when I will sit with my thesaurus and just read words.....I know that sounds weird, but just reading words, and seeing the words with similar meanings will sometimes inspire me.

  • Just write, write and don't read. Do it on a computer or a blog. Or Better yet do naowrimo

  • I agree with the others...just write.  I actually read years ago that you should turn off your monitor and just type so that you can't see and go back and try and fix mistakes.

    In school we used to have to write squiggly lines if we couldn't think of anything but I would get so busy remembering to write squiggly lines I would forget to actually write, lol (I went around and around with my English teacher over this technique).

  • I need to be in that "place" before I can write. Music helps me get there. Try it.
