It’s a question I’ve been asking writers for years—and one that’s so thought-provoking I even named this blog after it!
Take a moment to reflect: What’s your favorite way to get your creative juices flowing? Where do your ideas come from? How do you get over writer’s block?
(One excellent way to get inspired is to join us in the 10K Novel-Writing Challenge, where you’ll put your nose to the grindstone and crank out 10,000 words in the first 10 days of October. Are you in? You can pre-register now.)
“Just write anything, even if it is nothing more than gobbledygook. The idea here is to break through the logjam and get the oxygen moving through the body. Exercise is also useful. For example, go for a walk. Some of my best ideas arrived during walks in the park or neighborhood. My point is not to fret over it. Relax and breathe deeply. The more uptight you are the less likely you are to be productive. Like most things in life, it will pass.”
How about you? What inspires your writing?
