Things to Do When You Can’t Seem to Write

Are the words just not coming? Try getting away from the screen for a few minutes.

Do Something Productive

  • Take care of the dishes – load or unload your dishwasher, or wash a sinkfull by hand. If you have to leave any to soak, try writing for a few minutes while they do.
  • Put away that basket of laundry you’ve been ignoring.
  • Clean your bathroom sink.
  • Put away any shoes, jackets, or other outerwear you left lying around.

Do Something Fun

  • Write/draw/paint in your journal, if you have one. Do a page, then try writing again.
  • Read a chapter of your current book.
  • Set a timer for five or ten minutes and play a simple game that will let your mind disengage–my go-to is Spider Solitaire.
  • Call/Skype/text a friend and have a chat for a few minutes.

Make Your Writing Space More Pleasant

  • Straighten up your desk. Throw out any scraps of paper that have served their purpose, but check to make sure you’re not tossing out story notes! Dust the surface off, and put away anything that belongs somewhere else.
  • Light a candle.
  • Get a glass of water, or make yourself tea or coffee.

Take Care of Yourself

  • Grab a small snack if you’re hungry.
  • Are your hands dry? Mine get terrible in winter. Moisturize!
  • Lips, too –grab that lip balm.
  • Feeling sluggish? Take a short walk or do some jumping jacks to get your energy level up.
  • Feeling grungy? Take a shower. “Inspirational” showers are my favorite, I get so many ideas in there.

If one of these doesn’t break you from your funk, try one from another category to switch things up. And if you still don’t find your writing mojo, maybe you need a longer break, or to pack it in for the day. Just remember, working hard is great, but forcing yourself to write can burn you out, so keep yourself in balance!

under the cut you’ll find #201 245x140 gifs of Korean hair-flip god actor LEE HYUN-JAE in his role as Freddie in the first three episodes of the Korean web-drama 뷰티살롱M (Beauty Salon M). All these gifs were made my me (pyxpyxpyx) from scratch. Feel free to chuck ‘em in your gif hunts, make icons, I dunno whatever you want. Have fun and shit. Credit is always cool, but man I don’t care enough to track you down and call you out for it. Likes and reblogs are always sick, but not necessary. Go, make a million Lee Hyun-Jae muses, that’s all I ask.

you recognized Bella, because her hair but mostly because of the way Paul was reacting. you could tell the situation was going to go down hill really fast. 

you were there in an instant. you lightly touched Paul’s arm, “Paul.” you said. he looked at you for a second, chest still heaving, “Paul, we should get coffee.” you stated.

now everyone looked at you. Paul turned to face you, “yes.” he said. you could see the tension drain from his shoulders. Sam looked between you two but you ignored it, simply grabbing Paul’s hand and pulling him towards the house, “let’s get you a shirt.” you stated.

he grinned, “you dont like me like this?”

Vacation Packing Timeline and Tips!

Hey guys! I’ve gotten a few questions about planning outfits for vacations, as well as packing. I thought I would share my “Vacation Packing Timeline” as well as a few tips and tricks I’ve discovered over the years that just make packing and traveling so much easier. My spring break is in one week, therefore over the past few weeks I have been preparing my clothes, bags, and myself for the trip! These are just a few things that I find helpful during packing/travel!

Preparing/Packing Timeline 

  • Two weeks before a trip: I like to use an app (Stylebook is my favorite; about $3 on the app store, but so worth it) to plan out my outfits that I will be taking on a trip. My general rule is to pack by outfit, not by piece, therefore I will plan specific outfits and save them to the app! I also like to pack things that I can pair 2-3 different ways, that way if I change my mind when I arrive at my destination, I have another way to wear an outfit and it wasn’t a total waste to bring it! For example, pack a top that can be worn with white jeans/regular jeans as well as shorts, but also can be paired with different shoes and jewelry to change the outfit from day to night! Of course there are a few exceptions to this rule…that super cute going out dress and pair of heels…but generally I try to follow it. 
  • One week before a trip: This is when I like to lay my clothes out! I push all my clothes to one end of my closet, and hang the clothes I plan on brining all in one section on the other side, therefore I can see all together how many outfits I’m bringing, if something is too similar, and if something can be paired a few different ways! This is also the time where I look at all my clothes and see if anything needs to be washed, sent to the dry cleaners, or ironed! This takes a lot of time out of packing, that way when I begin to fill my suitcase I know everything is clean and crisp; I don’t have to take time out of packing to clean/iron anything. 
  • One week before a trip: This is also the time where I like to start to pamper myself to ensure I look my best on the trip! I workout year round, but if you don’t, you might want to start a week or two before your trip just to flush out your body and make sure your face is clear and bright! I make sure to eat extra healthy this week, drink tons of water, and spend more time treating myself! I’ll whiten my teeth, use a face mask, exfoliate my skin, wax my eyebrows, get my nails done, and get a spray tan!
  • Five days before a trip: This is when I like to pair my jewelry with my outfits; I tend to always overpack jewelry and find that I don’t even end up wearing half of it! I pick 3-4 necklaces, 3-4 pairs of earrings, and 2-3 bracelets that can go with most, if not all outfits so that I minimize luggage space. This can also be done right from the beginning (or at the packing stage) to avoid an extra step and an extra days work, but I just love packing so much that I don’t mind having something to do each day haha. 
  • Three days before a trip: I like to grab my suitcase out of the garage and make sure I have all the bags I need to pack. Even when I’m not flying I just find it easier to pack everything in one huge suitcase instead of taking a few different bags. I may look funny with a giant suitcase pulling up to my friends house for the weekend, but for me, it’s just so much easier to have everything organized in one place. You can never go wrong with one giant suitcase that fits all your clothes, shoes, hair tools, makeup, accessories, bags, etc.! 
  • Two days before a trip: I begin to pack. I like packing at this point because if I find that I need to run to the store because I forgot something, then I have the time to do it. This reduces so much stress and anxiety for me because then I know I have absolutely everything I need and I’m not running around like a crazy person. This is also when I like to do my laundry that way I have clean pajamas, socks, t-shirts, and other things for the trip. 
  • One day before a trip: This is when I finalize packing. I lay out the outfit I plan on wearing the next day, and finish up my suitcase. Rolling your clothes into a suitcase really does save so much space, unless it is a thick or heavier item. Therefore I lay my jeans, jackets, and sweaters flat, then roll everything else! I will also fill up my travel size containers with shampoo/conditioner, face wash, face lotion, body lotion, etc. I store everything in gallon Ziploc bags because I’m paranoid that something will leak! While I’m doing this I will be checking off items on a packing list I made (because I’m crazy and an outfit planning app isn’t enough) just to make sure I don’t forget anything! Also, I will go through my pantry and fridge and throw out any food that will expire before I come back. I’ll pack a few snacks to have on the way to my destination. If I’m just going to a friends house or my parents house I’ll also pack a small cooler with the foods that are going to expire soon, but that I don’t want to throw out (fruits, veggies, sandwich stuff, milk, etc.). I’ll also clean my apartment and do the dishes so that when I come back from a trip everything is nice and clean so I can just relax after traveling.  

These tips may not work for everyone. However, I find that by taking a few minutes out of each day to check off these tasks I never forget anything while traveling and am so much more relaxed. I am a very organized person and love to take a little time out of each day to accomplish these tasks. I love packing and traveling, so this is fun for me. If you’re one of the people who isn’t obsessed with planning and packing, maybe just follow tips 2 and 7 ;) Hope this was helpful!
