Writer’s block. You know what it’s like. It’s agony. It’s you wasting a lot of hours looking at blank paper. Is there a cure for it?
Try some writing prompts. These can come in the form of questions, thought provoking pictures, and other writing exercises that challenge you to think more creatively. My favorite is a book that my cousin gave me. It’s called Writer’s Block: 786 Ideas to Jump-Start Your Imagination by Jason Rekulak, and it’s actually shaped like a block. You can also look for writing prompts on the web.
1. It gives you a starting point for your piece.
2. You can use several writing prompts and make connections between them, so you can come up with something totally unique.
3. You can interpret these writing prompts in several ways. This will challenge you to think outside the box.
