Re: Writer's Block - Another Possible Solution

I have a suggestion that you may find strange but give it a thought. I am currently NOT getting paid to write but I write as a form of personal expression. A friend recommended starting a blog for the purpose of practicing. I have found it to be very helpful and the more I do, the more I want to do. After a while, you develop a network of other bloggers that you read and who read yours. For me, that creates a sense of duty to keep up my writing so that my blogger friends have something good to read! Since you are in complete control, you choose how much or how little you write. The sense of power motivates some to really get their creative energies flowing. You don't have to allow anyone to see your blog, you can make it private. Or you can put it out there for anyone to read. Again, it is your choice.

I also use visual imagery to inspire me to write, not artwork but my own photographs. So I second that recommendation.

Good Luck and I hope you are able to let the writer in you get those stories out!

I had a dream that helped me develop a character in my next film that has been kind of flat, and I've had writer's block trying to fix it. I added two scenes and I think it's really helping out. Now, I need to focus on one more character.

Sometimes, dreams can help out.
