How to get over the writer blues

Do you need to work through the winter blahs?

Well, I do.

Cooped up inside and too sick to write, my brain turned to mush. Every time I sit down to write takes a monumental effort. The words won’t come. But today, lo and behold, other writers came to my rescue.

This morning over coffee I opened my email and read…

How to Start and Keep Writing After a Long Break

Ask a question and someone has an answer. I really enjoyed reading READ TO WRITE STORIES and the suggestions in this blog post. And I can’t wait to get the recommended book.

There are a few exercise suggestions in the post. Some you may be familiar with, others may help jog your characters.

My favorite was DROP AND ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM.

Think about that for a minute. I’m sure y’all have been in a room where everyone tip-toed around an elephant.

After you read the article, tell me what you think.

How do you get back into the writing groove after a long break?

  1. I struggled this morning myself. Ended up Googling for some prompts and somehow cranked out two Drabble that I’m actually really excited about. I just had to find some little seed to start from. So hard to do. Thanks for posting this – I will be checking out these resources.

  2. I totally understand your feeling about writing, how nothing clicks in your brain. I had a similar situation yesterday, I could not think of anything to write using the prompt, ‘viable’, so I decided to leave it till tomorrow.
    The news around the world was so frustrating, I stopped watching the news and clicked YouTube to listen to songs of my favorite singers, this relaxed my brain and suddenly I found out I was ready to write the prompt. The thoughts came flowing and I was pleased I didn’t need to wait till the next day. 🙂
