Some days, ideas just don’t flow. This is one of those days. No amount of brainstorming or walking among the tomato blooms after work brings any inspiration.
In some ways, it’s a frustrating way to start the A-Z Challenge. In another, though, it’s a bit apropos. After all, this is just another part of the writing process. Writer’s block. That awful realization that everything has ground to a halt.
But it’s something that can be beaten. Just little determination, a little humor about what won’t work, and eventually something happens. Even if it’s writing about feeling blank.
One of my favorite techniques to kick writer’s block is coming up with humorous (and outrageous) ways of fixing the problem. My favorite: the day that Iron Man and a group of ninjas almost saved a protagonist who’d been captured by an enemy army. A medieval enemy army.
How do you kick writer’s block?
