More Methods to Overcome Writer’s Block

In my last post, I gave you several prompts and lines of dialogue to jump-start the creative process and help you get back to writing. Occasionally, a line or two of dialogue is simply not enough. When you find yourself facing writer’s block again, give these techniques a try to get your work moving again:

Read a book
Clean your house
Watch television
Go for a walk
Turn on some music and dance
Cook or bake something
Call a friend or loved one
Go for a drive
Go shopping
Play with your pet
Take a long bath or shower
Work in the garden
Have a cup of tea or coffee
Write in your journal
Take a nap
Play a board or video game
Vacuum
Clean the toilet
