Let's Ignite Your Creativity!

Do you have a story to tell but the words aren’t coming fast enough or not at all? Well, you may be suffering from writer’s block (the inability to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing). Writers including myself use this phrase a lot. But to be honest, there were times when I was simply being too lazy to write. Anyway, here are some tips to ignite your creativity juices and get them flowing:
  1. Do freewriting (forget about punctuation and write whatever comes to the top of your head).
  2. Eliminate distractions.
  3. Change your environment.
  4. Listen to music to inspire you.
  5. Read a book.
  6. Clear your head (go for a drive, run, walk and commune with nature, etc.).
  7. Brainstorm ideas.
  8. Develop a productivity rewards system. For instance, for every 1,000 you write, give yourself a reward (chocolate, watch 30 minutes of your favorite TV show, buy yourself a notebook, chat with a friend, etc.).
Note: Let’s ignite your creativity by forcing yourself to write every day. It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate as long as you write!
