Inspiration, where did you go?

As I near the end of ‘Bruised’ I have a clear end in sight which is great. Hurray! While I’m over the moon that my end is decided, I’m having trouble getting from Hunter’s “well, I’m fucked” to “Why not try one last time?”

Waiting for inspiration is like waiting for rain in this drought, useless and disappointing. (Don’t judge me, everyone loves A Cinderella Story. Even you, reader. I know it.) Does anyone have any tips to kick start your brain into gear? How to trigger inspiration? Should I skip the scene, write the end then come back to it? Sitting at a dead end is a waste of my energy and I’m frustrated, but want to stay with Hunter!

How do you guys handle dead ends, inspiration gone wild?

  1. I think the greatest way to get inspiration (at least for me) is to get out there and try something new. Take a language class, or watch a sport game. Getting out in the public and interacting with people is more than enough to get the creative juices flowing.

  2. Howdy! This article could not be written much better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this information to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!|
