Crush That Pesty Writer's Block!

Ever just sit at the computer after you've been writing? Stuck? Well, these tips helped me through my first book and my current one.

1( Set a fake deadline. Say, an hour. This always works for me. I type like nobody's buissness! (It's just like energy from last minute holiday shopping).

2( Take a walk, play a pointless toddler game with dolls, anything! Just take a break and do something inspirational or something that involves creativity. (The dolls). (Or "action figures" guys!)

3( Did you stop becuase you bored? Or are yuo down? Maybe you think your stories getting no where? Who cares? JUST WRITE AND WRITE FOR FUN!!!!

I'm 16 and find the tip great. I also listen to music and pray for inspiration when I don't know what to write next.
