How To Inspire Yourself To Write 

Because sometimes we all need to be inspired before writing.

Exercise.

Dance. Play baseball. Shoot some hoops. Whatever you like. Move your body, and maybe your mind will too.

Write.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is write, even when you’re slumping. If nothing else, start another project. Try to write when you aren’t inspired or motivated. Who knows what might happen.

Read.

If you don’t feel like reading, watch a movie or TV show. Perhaps other stories will inspire you to tell your own.

Game.

Play. Have fun. Video games are great. You have a new world to discover. You get to see a storyline unfold. You can study dialogue between different characters.

Blog.

Bloggers are some of the most inspiring people you’ll ever meet. Enough said.

Rest.

At times, you just need a break. That’s okay. Eat. Sleep. Take care of your body. Return to your story when you’re ready.

Explore.

Go outside. Take a walk. Travel somewhere you’ve never been before. That could get the creative juices flowing again.

Happy writing!

  1. I just found this post “parked” in another file. I had planned to use it with my writing class at the university, but now that there will be no more classes there, I must at least tell you I read it and enjoyed reading for myself. 12/8 Hope you have a good weekend, Dear. We are having rain and cold winds. The temperature itself is not bad, but the dampness (storms and rain all day yesterday and today) chills these old arthritic bones! I’m glad I can stay in tonight!
