Doldrums (n.): a. A period of stagnation or slump.
We all have had the doldrums; those times when our writing isn’t going our way and we aren’t sure it ever will. Writer’s block can be debilitating but with these tips you can boost your writing spirit again.
- Read a favorite book to rekindle your brain.
- Start other projects and come back to your piece once your inspiration juices start flowing.
- Take a long stroll and let the fresh air clear your mind so you can write.
Remember, this period couldn’t last forever even if you tried. Keep going!
