Supposed Crimes 30-day challenge Day 28: What do you do when you feel creatively stuck?
I’ve written previously about sources of creativity and writer’s block. I’ve read books and blog posts on the topic ad nauseum. Bottom line, if those methods aren’t moving a project forward even a little, I know it’s time for self-care:
- riding my bike
- doing an “errand” out of the house
- taking a shower
- reading a book
Hopefully refreshed after 30-60 minutes (though naps are 90 min), I’ll go back to writing. If that doesn’t work, I try to figure out what else is stressing me out and resolve it.
