That way, when I sit down at my computer, I’m refreshed and ready to write, eager to incorporate the ideas and thoughts that have been building up in the back of my mind.
However, if I get stuck while looking at the blank screen/page, searching for the next word or sentence, I find that it’s best to just write something that moves the story forward as best I can, even if I know it isn’t going to be perfect. I get something down and move on, then circled back to edit or fix once the motivation returns.
If the block is more about the story line or plot, rather than the words or sentences, then I like to take a notebook and paper outside to brainstorm, think and jot down notes. Usually a few hours thinking through the problem will reveal a solution and motivate me to get back to work.(less)
