  1. What worked best for me was to walk away from writing for a while ( I mean a few months) and come back refreshed. Now if I get blocked I just go for a run and straighten everything in my head.

    1. I think that’s wise LeeAn, sometimes a break is good. Aha! You are a definite runner. 🙂 I like going for walks. 🙂

    1. That’s a good idea too Elaine. I think we all have our own ways of pushing through and working things out. 🙂

  2. I wish on the ice cream. I’m allergic to milk so I can’t eat!

    For me, I put the project aside for a few. A power walk does wonders to clear the cobwebs out of my head. **I actually once came up with the premise to No More Goddesses while on a run!

    Also, lately, I’ve been hitting my favorite coffee house and having one of their amazing tea lattes. The atmosphere helps my creative juices flow. I also broke down and purchased some large headphones to use while writing. Husband works from home and it can be very distracting.

    Mainly though, I try to write though it.

  3. I go clean something. Or paint something. Or rifle through the junk drawer or closet and get rid of something. Maybe go through the past couple of days’ worth of mail and either file important stuff or throw junk away! Doing that kind of task let’s my creative brain wander about and find her mojo again.

    1. great idea JoMarie. I sometimes do that too. I start decluttering. Sometimes cleaning your surroundings helps clean out the cobwebs in the brain. 🙂

  4. I’m taking a writing class with Cat Rambo right now and she has NO pity for writer’s block. She said her dad drove trucks for a living and he never got up in the morning and had truck driving block. He had to go to work, no matter what. If you view writing with the same amount of importance that you view your job, or if writing IS your job, you cannot give in to writer’s block. Her cure is to sit at her computer, or at her blank page, and write something, anything, even if it’s “I don’t know what to write” over and over. She says your brain will get bored with that pretty quickly and it will start making stuff up to overcome the boredom. I haven’t tried that yet, but I have been a whole lot harder on myself about not giving up and just walking away when the words don’t come easily.

    1. That’s a great point Karissa! Very true. What do other people do for their jobs? They just keep working. I think Stephen King said that as well. Work ethic. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by.
