I make sure I have multiple projects to work on, so if I’m blocked on one project I can then focus on a different one.

Also, sometimes if I feel blocked I focus on a different activity all together: I read other writer’s work; do yoga; meditate; dance around to music and/or sing out loud; take a walk; listen to music; watch movies, TV, or go to the theater.

As well, I have a stand up desk (converts from a sitting position to a standing position) so if I feel blocked I make sure I alternate my writing position—standing can help promote good brain circulation and help motivate my sometimes blocked emotional state.

I grew up as a theater performer and writing allows me to channel all that energy and create worlds with every kind of character imaginable, to act them out (yes I do act out scenes and situations when I write), and place all that imagination on the page.(less)
