Finding Inspiration as a Writer
1. Write on a Blog
If you’re stuck on a specific project, it may help to make a website that you can refer to when you’re in those creative ruts. Maybe you can write about your creative block and how you plan to get over it? The sky’s the limit, but getting there can require a few breaks where you stop and think.
2. Read as Much (or More) Than You Write
The more you read, the more ideas you’ll absorb. You’ll have an endless well of inspiration to pull from if you’re always experiencing new books and stories. Even if you just read other blogs, that will also help.
3. Dialogue What You Hear in Public
