I sometimes get stuck. I feel like I want to write something but, for whatever reason it just doesn’t happen. They don’t happen a lot these block days but, when they do I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help conquer them.
Music helps a lot. When I can’t quite find the words, it’s nice to listen to someone else’s for a while. It’s usually a bit of a mixture, something motivating and upbeat or chilled and slow, it depends on how I feel but, it definitely works.
Reading a new story seems to help as well. Books have always been my most favoured escape. I always find it so easy to get lost in a good book or an article, anything that keeps me engaged, whether that’s a good old- fashioned adventure or a mystery or two. Podcasts are another go to for me and a bit of chocolate for an energy boost. At the moment, I am currently enjoying Table Manners with Jessie and Lennie Ware and Life DownLow’ed with Dan Edge and Sam Renke.
Life’s been a bit sad lately and these hilarious podcasts definitely have helped bring a smile to my face and again, its great writing help. I wondered what helps you all? Is it books? Or chocolate? A great TV series I should be watching? Let me know in the comments. How do you defeat the block?
