5 Ways to write even when you feel uninspired

We all have those days, even months when no inspiration comes to write.

Here are 5 simple things you can do to help you kick start your writing again.

1. Read more books

Might sound strange to some, but reading is a great way to inspire you to write. It can spark an idea in your mind and trigger a story.

Also seeing what another Author does can give you the push you need to create your own masterpiece.

2. Do something you love

Sometimes all you need is time out of your writing den, and norm of life. Go do something you enjoy. Even if it’s a massage, weekend away or coffee with an old friend.

Your brain needs downtime by changing activities. It’s like a natural kickstart.

3. Celebrate small wins

Don’t be hard on yourself if you only manage to write a few hundred words a day or if you come up with an idea for the next chapter only. Celebrate those small wins. Every step forward is a step to completing your novel.

4. Ignore criticism

There will always be people who read something you write and have a negative comment. Don’t take the criticism to heart. Judge it objectively.

Ask yourself : Is there something I can learn from it to improve or should I ignore it all together?

Whatever you do, don’t let criticism stop you from writing and being great at it.

5. Don’t wait for inspiration

If you’re going to wait until you feel 100% inspired to write, then you will never write. Just start writing and see how the story starts to guide you. Writing steers inspiration. Inspiration doesn’t steer your writing.
