I'm an author trying to make a living doing what I do best which is writing. Welcome to my blog, and this is my journey to becoming a successful author. I write, read, and love to research. I write contemporary fantasy, paranormal romance, and new adult. I love writing poetry, novels, novellas, and short stories. I have my head in the clouds, and love to dream in my writing room.
hate it when it happens because no matter what I do I cannot work on creative
writing at all, or on my current projects. The only time it happens though is
when I am too tired to do anything. I woke up early yesterday to take my cats
to get their shots.
I hang out with my boyfriend
that day, and had to go to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. Then I went to
the store, but before that my brother got his hair done. I got a page done
during the wait to the dentist, and finished highlighting the original story. I
do dishes, and go on Facebook, read blogs, but I really cannot write down
anything since I hit a block. I feel stuck, and maybe it is because of the lack
of planning out the story, and the fact that I never went over chapter by
chapter of the story. Sometimes that is not the case, and sometimes your so
tired from work that you cannot write anything at all. Tiredness? Stress? Just
really don’t feel like doing anything thanks to watching reality tv all the
I hit a block with
the retail story, and Astral Witch because I have not thoroughly outlined them
yet. Relaxing seems to help me beat it because work stresses me out and tires
me to the point where I just want to sit.
I went to Maymont
park with my boyfriend and his friend to get out of my funk, and spend time
with friends. To get out of the house and get some exercise. The picture I got is
The pretty lion fountain.
Going there helped me get back to
nature. Showering helps too since some of the best ideas are in there. It also
helps with the writers block, and sometimes movies and tv shows can help.
I have been
watching Hardcore Pawn lately and
reading Retail Hell by Freeman Hale,
and Secrets of Retail by J. W. Morgan
to be entertained, and see the funny customer reactions to inspire me to write
some crazy customer stories myself. I eat snacks to boost my brain into helping
me beat Writers Block. Reading books with fiction exercises, and doing them
helps me too when dealing with a block. I am taking Creative Writing 2 and
Novel Writing 1 in the fall. I hope those classes will help me with being a
better writer, and help me find a writing routine. I will talk more about a
writing routine in another blog post.
Anyways to beat
writers block for you that work? Why does it help?
