This is an Author Mindset I’ve posted to the fb page, other social media as well as here on here on the blog.
Author Mindset ~ A Change of Tools can Spur Writing
Writing can be very fleeting at times. When I am stuck on something, I find ways to get unstuck. One of my methods is a change in the tools I am using. When writing by computer I step away from that and pick up my notebook and pen. The feel of that pen in my hand and paper under my fingers helps get me out of the sameness of watching a computer screen. Or I also take a tape recorder and just talk. This isn’t so much writing at times. It’s more of a stream of consciousness thing. This helps shake loose things that could be bothering me with what I’m writing or spark ideas for a new direction.
There are so many methods you can use when you get stuck. So next time you are stuck instead of staring at that blank page/screen or etc shake things up and use a different tool.
