I have writer’s block
You’re sitting behind your computer, and nothing comes up … You have no inspiration (anymore) to write. This is also known as writer’s block.
Writers often have to deal with this. But what now?
Some wait until it passes. Others want to actively do something about it. They give themselves exercises to find new story angles.
Write something completely different
Instead of working on your book, you write, e.g., a blog about food.
Change your writing environment
Do you write behind your desk? Go outside for a change.
Do research work on the theme of your book
You’ll find new perspectives.
Follow (writing) courses
That can give you more insights.
Rewrite the first part of your book
Did you lose sight of your story line there? Some minor adjustments may add new twists.
Analyze your story
Why do you choose that specific theme? Have you temporarily lost touch with it? Then go back to the beginning.
Give the characters some new traits. This will give your story a different turn.
Ask someone to read your story. Their opinion is often surprising.
