Writersblock
2

Actually, I’m running on a writer block caused by a lawsuit against abusive Twitter users. So I’m really thankful for any hint, how one could pass such a block. I already tried yoga, and it worked not this bad. Same with taking a long bath with calm music. But that didn’t break the block 🙁

I dont write but do other creative stuff. Imo the best way to get around such phases is to put yourself into new situations for (any kind of) input.

  • Go to a library (maybe in a different town) and read some books that you wouldn’t normally
  • Take a random train to a random town and just explore
  • Go to a weird little pub you never went to and talk to people (or just the bartender :D)
  • @yxzi@lemmy.ml’s dogsitting idea is nice. Just phone the next animal shelter and ask if you can walk a dog. (Try small ones first ;)
  • Visit a niche hobby or antique store

Thank you for your input :) I tried the dog sitting one, but I’m more the cat person. So I’ll go one day a week to a shelter and feed cats and play a bit with them.
Because of talking to people, you hit my Achilles tendon. 😆 I’m a bit more than just an introvert and have already fight anxieties when I take the train to my office.

PS: Creativity is creativity. No matter if you write, draw, crochet, or knit. 😊

have you tried hiking/going for a walk? maybe go see your nearest body of water & stroll around there. another idea would be dogsitting

I always enjoy sitting at the small river near my office and watching the ducklings trying to swim against the flow and perceive the splashing of the water as a welcome white noise.

I have found that creativity is a skill that I have to train myself to be consistent at. When I have a writer’s block, I just write anyways, even if it’s bad and extremely unoriginal, it kinda tells my brain “yo. pst. hey. bud. we kinda need this skill all the time. what the fuck are you doing bruh.” and makes blocks less common for me

Idk if it’d be the same for you, though

It’s worth a try 🙂
