true that.

when i have writer's block i sometimes pause from writing and read books instead. Sometimes, I also listen to different kinds of music or look for nice fanarts for inspiration if im writing a fan fic.

read some other book that i might get ideas from or just sleep it in then i'm all good to go next day. or maybe a few more days of sleep will do me good.

I just write some short stories or fanfics, so when I get writers block, i'll just watch tv or play a video game, or just start to daydream and let my mind take me away, and then when i think of a good scenario, i pretty much let it write itself. lol.

I get drunk, and talk to strangers about anything they want to talk about, wake up hungover and go for a swim at the gym. Then I sit in the pub (it always makes me smile that so many UK gyms have bars on the premises) and have a bloody mary whilst other people actually work out. I then go the beach, walk along the pier and sit watching the waves for 20 mins or so.

Did this 3 times last year and it worked every time.

Scientifically, you could say the alcohol lowered my inhibitions and freed up the stress induced by the block, talking to strangers provided different perspectives on life which I could then relate in my work, exercise and fresh air produced a flow of endorphins which stimulated my brain, and the calming motion of the ocean relaxed my senses and freed up my imagination.

Or it could just be that I like to get pissed and write bs.

I watch an interesting new anime series or play a crazy new videogame. That usually gets a river of ideas flowing. Not that I'm a professional author or anything ..

I don't write when I have a block. But sometimes if I have a block in one area, there's a clearing somewhere else, so... D:

I stop thinking about writing, go out and do something fun, and usually play some games.
