What I find often works is to get away from it. Staring at the computer or notepad for hours on end gets you nowhere. Take a walk or go get some food and come back with some fresh eyes. Works for me when I get frustrated with my design work
What I usually do is try to watch a movie that has something in common with what I am writing about. Then if I see something cool, I ask myself how I could make it better and then go from there. Hope that helps.
okay i need some help, i've been trying to write someting in my spare time, i've gotten a couple of points written down but i cant seem to find any inspiration to write something down, how do you guys do it when facing a block?
