Thursday Tips: Writers block!

Hello everyone!
Welcome back to Tip Thursday! Today we talk about getting pass writers block. Every author suffers from it so here are a few tips on how to get pass it and get your story completed.

1) Purposely ignore the block
Make the time to write, add it to your schedule and show up to write, even if nothing comes right away. When your body shows up to the page at the same time and place every day, eventually your mind — and your muse — will do the same. 

2) Don't Be Too Hard on Yourself.

Don’t be hard on yourself at all while writing. Turn the critical brain off. There is a time and place for criticism: it’s called editing.

3) Think of Writing as your regular Job.

If we think of ourselves as laborers, as craftsmen, it’s easier to sit down and write. You're an artist, you create worlds for others to read. We’re not just putting words on the page. At the end of the day, we’re creating things — stories, poems, plays — just as bricklayers do accept we use vocabulary and grammar instead of bricks and mortar.

4) Work on More Than One Project at a Time.

Some writers find it helpful to switch back and forth from one project to another. Whether this minimizes fear or boredom, or both, it seems to prevent writer's block for many people.

5) Take Time Off If You've Just Finished a Project.

Writer's block could be a sign that your ideas need time to gestate. Idleness can be a key part of the creative process. Give yourself time to gather new experiences and new ideas, from life, reading, or other forms of art, before you start again.

Try these out and let us know if they work! See ya next week with more tips to help make you a better writer.
