I’m in the middle of drafting a novel, and I think I may have caught the writers block bug. The only real cure for me is reading (and writing). But the last few days that hasn’t seemed to help.
I know that my mom doesn’t believe in writers block, and mostly I think it’s a self inflicted illness anyway. But for those who DO experience it, what do you do? How do you cope/cure?
Does having a writers group help? Does reading help? Does lying in bed and watching 4 episodes of Master Chef in a row help?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
In the meantime, I am going to join Ann Dee with the august writing challenge. Believe it or not, I already have the hourglass timer! (I would highly suggest you invest in one. They are awesome)
One hour a day keeps the writers block away…right?
To prepare myself, I am going to make a rule where I can’t socialize on the media and I’m not allowed to watch my stories (master chef) until after my 1 hour of writing.
Ready to get cured!
