Sometimes I wish I let that girl have her way with me and she probably have made be sleep with her…
So I have a better reason to want to die… But I won’t because I care too much for the people around me
Don't Sweat It: How to Get Out of Your Writing Slump
Everyone has those days - as much as you try the words just are not coming together, they’re not looking good, and you’re banging your head against your desk wondering if you have any talent at all. Don’t worry. I’m going to talk about that today. When you’re in a slump and you really just want to be back in your stride writing freely, here’s something to try:
Take a deep breath. Breathe in. Breathe out. Calm yourself down. Clear your head.
Watch a movie, talk to a friend, go eat a meal. Do something that is not related to writing. Don’t read a book. If you’re frustrated with writing, reading might just make you angrier - why can’t I write like this?! kind of angry and you don’t want that right now.
Once you’re done, sit down at your computer and write something.
It can’t be what you were working on before.
Make sure it’s just for fun.It doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t have to be good. It’s just for you and it’s just for fun. Get into the swing of it. Maybe write off of a goofy prompt. Don’t stress. This little piece of writing doesn’t count for anything. It’s just for you.
Try this for 10 minutes.
By the end of that ten minutes, a lot of the time you will get back into the swing of things, recognize your own voice again and maybe decide to give an old project a stab again. Just try not too look at were you got stuck. Just move on from that point. Keep writing, keep the story moving.
I love those moments when you’re reading a good book and after a while
you don’t really even see the words on the page anymore, and its like
you’re watching a movie in your head and you turn pages and keep reading
without realizing it just watching this movie for hours on end. Vivid
imagination, the written word is fully justified in having been
considered magic in centuries past. Think about people hundred of years
ago seeing black marks on parchment and hearing the words of someone
long dead in their head as they read, if that’s not an apt description
of what we consider magic i don’t know what is.
