#NaNoWriMo Keeping the Creativity Flowing and Avoid Writer’s Block
It’s day 3 and so far the words have been flowing out of my brain and onto the page with ease. Each night after writing I rethink about the next scene. How is it going to flow? What is going to happen to my main character? What I am anticipating happening at some point is that moment when the scene takes me a couple of days to work out. I spend lots of time thinking, walking/hiking, reading and believe it or not soaking in the shower. All of these things give me quiet time to move my brain along to that next step. I am not one to stare at a the computer just waiting for the words to magical pop out of my brain. I think about my characters. I think about the scene. I think about how the dialogue is going to all flow together to make sense and feel natural. I usually do not stress over these days. They never last for long, maybe a day or two. But, in NaNoWriMo a couple of days of not writing will put your word count behind. Making up those lost words could prove to be a challenge.
Think of many ideas in a short time period
Do not judge these ideas, just let them flow
Allow yourself to come up with wild ideas, not just plausible ideas
Draw pictures to help spurn the concept of your idea
Wishing all of those writing like crazy this month, either in the challenge or not, happy writing and stress free writer’s block days!
