So, the 6th question is “What do you do for writers block?”
1) Author #1 : Tetasheri Whitney
Drink a cup of red wine, exercise, pray, find depth in the meanings of my life and it’s environment, play jazz or old gospel music
2) Author #2: Beth Merlin
A shower always helps me break through. I don’t know why but some of my best ideas come to me when I am washing my hair.
3) Author #3: Tracy Orchard
Get up and walk away, do something else and leave it alone. Then when I am doing other stuff my friends pop into mind and I wonder what they’re doing today, then just like that I can go back to writing.
4) Author #4: Jae El Foster
I periodically teach a class I created years ago called Creative Convulsions. Through it, I help authors deal with writers block through mind tricks, word association games, paragraph assignments and other fun projects.
5) Author #5: Adesanya
Pray to any god or goddess that chooses to listen.
6) Author #6: Amy Spitzfaden
I rest and brainstorm. Resting takes care of the burnout aspect, brainstorming takes me past the block.
7) Author #7: Summer Dowell
Something physical. It could be as simple as standing up and walking around my room, but moving always seems to stimulate more thoughts.
8) Author #8: Jennifer Patricia O’Keeffe
Plow through it. Sometimes you have to just sit down and make yourself write. Claiming writers block is giving writers block ownership of your creativity. You own your creativity. Make it flow.
9) Author #9: Sasha Lane
Go to a coffee shop, grab a latte, and people watch. I find this helps me relax, and drift off into my own world.
10) Author #10: Kristin Billerbeck
I go do something else. I watch a movie. I go to the beach. I get away from it. When I’m on deadline, the adrenaline kicks in and I don’t have that problem. Because I like to actually eat.
11) Author #11: Phaedra Patrick
If I’m stuck on a chapter or section of the book, I leave it alone and try writing something else. It’s hard to be creative when you’re stuck! I usually think of a scene or situation I really want to write, and concentrate on that.
12) Author #12: Katie Joyce Cross
I figure out what question I need answered, then I keep writing.
