Writer’s Block

How do you overcome it? What gets you warmed up and on a roll?

by Anonymousreply 201/11/2021

I had this teacher in college who made us do this exercise where we had to start writing when he said "Go" and to do so for 15 minutes. It didn't matter how good or how crappy the writing was -- we would get credit all the same. If I do say so myself, a lot of what I wrote wasn't crappy at all. I know that it's harder to motivate yourself when there's no teacher ordering you, but if you can make yourself just do it and not worry about the quality at all, you might come up with some good stuff.

R1 Stream of consciousness writing has worked for me in the past. It’s sort of like doing a warmup routine. Thanks for the reminder!

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
