Cure for writer's block? - September 26th 2010, 10:22 PM

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on curing writer's block? I have an upcoming essay that is due in a few days, and I kinda been drawing blanks. I just want simple suggestions for writer's block in general. Thanks!

go out and spend time in nature...go sit somewhere (with your computer or notebook) and take in the "quiet". I find when I am thinking way too much about the project...I get more stressed. So, when I go somewhere quiet and peaceful (like in nature)...I get inspired because then it just starts to pour out of me-that always works for me

Great suggestion! Thanks! (It's kind of ironic too because some of what I have to write about deals with nature, it's perfect!) :P

When I have writers block I:

Listen to music
Read
Think about every but the piece of work I am writing. (For some reason when it isn't on my mind I end up getting some ideas about it)
Sit in nature/people watch

I was going to suggest 'A great shag', but then thought it might be a bit inappropriate D=

But the best thing to get past writers block is to go out and do fun things D=

Lots of the already posted suggestions are good. You can also try reading or watching a movie or tv.
