Getting it Back:
The most important thing to remember is "writer’s block" isn’t real. Ask yourself what you’re really feeling and what you really need.
If you're tired, and feel like you've been banging your head against the wall trying to keep writing, remember, it is okay to take a break. Set a schedule for getting back your creative flow, so your one week break doesn't turn into a month. And when you’re not writing, keep reading!
When you're ready to return to your work again, take a deep breath. Read over what you’ve written before you continue, and then give yourself permission to write crap. Perfectionism is your enemy here--all you're looking for is progress.
Reward yourself for putting new words down. Even if you think they all suck, anything is better than nothing.
Here are a few ways to wake up your brain and get your creativity flowing again:
Writing down your dreams
Writing/drawing with your non-dominant hand
Taking a class in something new
Reading/reading your own work out loud
Keep an “Experimental” book
Make a copy of your book to take some wild risks with your writing. Big or small. You might find some gold, and keep a good deal of it. Or, you might throw out most of it. But either way, it’ll get you writing again, and you’re sure to learn more about your fictional world.
It may feel like you’re writing fanfic of your own book, but this can be quite motivational. Imagine what kinds of fanfiction people will create when you’re a famous author!
As always, remember your three golden rules: keep writing, keep reading, and be persistent!
