Cronic Writer's Block, Pleaseeeeee help


#1

Hey, I am suffering major writers block right now, even worse it just comes along when I am halfway through the first episode and I need ideas on how to lift the start back up again. :sleepy: :confused: If you can help I will love you forever :sweat_smile:
Thanks :heart:

Do you need inspiration? If so, I suggest watching some movies or TV programmes, as they may inspire you. It’s usually what helps me when I’m stuck for ideas.

Or do you need motivation to write? I have struggled with this myself and I suggest maybe taking a break for a bit or maybe you could read some other episode stories to get back into it. I’m not entirely sure how to fix it myself, but I have a couple of threads I could link that might help you. Hope some of this helps :sweat_smile: :two_hearts:

Thanks, I really need inspiration so I might listen to music or watch some tv (like you suggested :smile: )

I know this was already mentioned above, but I’ve found that what really helps me with a bad block is taking a break for a day or two. It seems counter productive, but it really does the trick! That, and taking lots of naps to recharge my brain - OR doing some major brainstorming to fire it up! Above all else, try not to get frustrated with yourself or your story. That makes the block worse in my experience lol. :unamused: And remember that this isn’t permanent! It’ll pass. Good luck!!

Thanks so much, I get restless and fidgity if I’m not doing something so I might do some brainstorming. Thank you :sweat_smile:

You should try listening to writing/relaxing/studying music (there’s a bunch of videos on youtube, this is my go-to radio).

Another thing that helps me is taking a look at writing prompts - there’s a bunch of them in Pinterest and Tumblr.
