Overcoming my block

I  suffered from writer’s block for many years.  I think I am finally beginning to overcome it.  How did I do that you ask?  Well, there were many things I did to try and break my block.  One of the first things I did was to just sit down and put pen to paper.  Yes, I still write long hand.  I find it very helpful in getting my muse going and creating a good creative flow.  I don’t always write long hand.  Just when I need a good creative boost. I also made use of writing prompts to help push my imagination back into gear.  There are many good books and websites that have creative sparks and exercises.  Here are a few of my favorite websites:

http://creativewritingprompts.com/

http://www.writersdigest.com/writingprompts.asp

Some of these sites are geared more towards students, but they are helpful in breaking through the dreaded block!

Happy Writing!
