I've been struggling with months and months (and months) of writer's block. It got the point where I forgot what was going on in my story and had to go back and review my words. This took a lot longer than expected, because I found myself editing along the way (I know, not recommended), and getting distracted from it all together. This has all culminated with me getting very fed up with myself.
So, without further ado, here are my tips for kicking writer's block to the curb, and taking some of my own advice:
- Shut down the webs. Twitter - closed. Facebook - logged out. Blogger - gone. The only web thing I leave open is my trusty Thesaurus.com (I love that page).
- Give myself permission to freak out for a moment about the fact that I don't know what the hell is going on with my story, then shut that down too.
