Well with all that said here are my top five things I use to help me with the dreaded Writer's Block.
1. Music - Whether you produce music or just love to listen to it; take time out to listen to your favorite jams or create the next great hit. It can help relax and get those creative juices flowing.
2. Reading - Grab a book from your favorite author, such as R. Weir the author of the Jarvis Mann Detective Series or works by Kiana Donae when I am in the mood for poetry, but please choose the genre and author you love. Reading can be very inspirational and help one to know down that brick wall.
3. Exercise - For those who love to exercise this is a no brainer, the energy you build up is ready to explode and man words just flow - well for me this method works the best.
4. Play - Yeap, I said play. Take some time out and play a video game on that PS4 you bought just to watch blu-ray movies. Whether you want to save the world from zombies or be a team member of a military squad on a rescue mission; play helps one to see the project you are working on with fresh ideas and fresh eyes.
5 Writing - Guess you thought that this would not make my list because you are trying to overcome Writer's Block, but this is the main and best option as it keeps you in the writing mode and helps it to become habitual. Brainstorming, outlines, bullet points, grocery lists, or even writing about other topics for your next book or article will help break that age-old nemesis, The Writer's Block.
These are just a few ways to help you with Writer's Block and the ones that I use often. Try some of these to see if they work for you or if you have other methods please share your techniques with myself and others by commenting. That's it from your boy B.K. Maxwell - until next time Peace, Love & Hairgrease.
