Six Tips on Beating Writer’s Block

  1. Go for a walk
  2. This is the age of the word processor, you don’t have to write your story in a linear fashion. Write a later section, one that interests you.
  3. Always have two or three things on the go at once of different lengths. If you don’t feel like working on the novel, have a go at the short story. Don’t feel like fiction? Work on non-fiction
  4. Stop trying to get it right. Just follow a character and see where s/he goes. You don’t have to use everything you write.
  5. Change things around. What if a character was the opposite sex? What if they were younger/older?
  6. Still can’t write? Then take a break. If you’re not enjoying writing your story, then it’s unlikely that anyone’s going to enjoy reading it.
