6. How to beat writer's block

 

1. Write about your writers block. Whether it be in a satirical way, or a biographal way, write about writers block. Look at the Calvin and Hobbes comic above. The man who wrote CAH had writers block at the time, so he did a cartoon about that. Maybe write a story like George Orwell did about a person struggling to finish something such as a poem, again like George Orwell. 

 

2. Don't use generators. Although this seems like a reasonable resort, this can lower your level of originality and thus demolish any lingering creativity. Think about a situation that someone could be in. The Metamorphosis is about a man who has randomly (without and pattern or reason) transformed into an insect. You don't need to have a reason that they are in that situation right away, but you can have them discover it later on. Whatever you do, do not use generators.

 

3. Think of ridiculous names and features. This is super fun for me, since I love playing dress up games online to help me design and describe my character a little better and clearer, and I like using google translate to create meaningful names, such as calling a character "Vivian" in a series about ghosts and one of the big reveals is that she isn't a ghost. "Vivian" means "Alive" or "Live" in derivative latin. 

 

4. Write about trivial disasters. Did you spill tea on your shirt? Well maybe somebody spills a cup of chemicals on their shirt and they become immune to cuts, burns, bruises and the like.

 

5. Write a poem. Maybe you hate poetry, but I have realised that it stimulates damn good ideas for:

Hard-hitting drama

Steamy, sexy romance

terrifying thrillers

thought-provoking pyschological flicks and novels

ETCETERA.

 

Hope this helps!
