(I’m busy fighting dragons, so I’m reposting an old favorite today.)
- Take a break and do something else for a while before returning to writing.
- Freewrite until new ideas start flowing.
- Take a shower or bath—muses are known to be particularly inspirational during bathtime! And here are some products so you don’t have to run dripping for a pen and paper.
- Just keep writing, and see if you make a breakthrough.
- Work on a different writing project.
- Take a walk. Turn off your brain and experience the world through your senses.
- Do something else creative for a while, like drawing, singing, making a collage or playing with clay.
- Meditate or do a creative visualization—try this one if you’re dealing with a persistent inner critic.
- Read a book. Let someone else’s words flow over you.
- Write something silly or just plain bad. Don’t judge yourself. Sometimes if you start writing, no matter how uninspired you feel, your muse eventually shows up and sprinkles a little magic on the page.
