Beating Writer’s Block Is Surprisingly Easy! Here’s How.

Writer’s block used to kick my butt like nobody’s business, pushing me into complacency so much so I’d have no idea what to write for months. And now writer’s block is getting its butt kicked by me like nobody’s business! >:)

It’s so surprisingly easy with these three methods I’ve discovered in writing To the DeathHora: Everything I Never Said, and working on my scene outline. They might assist you in kicking writer’s block’s butt, too!

METHOD #1: FOR VISUAL THINKERS (LIKE ME)

If you’re like me, you use your imagination a lot.

And if you’re even more like me, you use it all the time.

Literally: I fall asleep daydreaming scenes from Warfare (and sometimes acting them out. Yeah, in my bed.). I zone out during political rants at church by imagining my Warfare characters fighting on the stage. I see Scriptures when reading my Bible in my time with God that are perfect theme verses for my characters. And there’s not a single song I listen to that doesn’t fit some scene in my series that’s not perfect for imagining a Warfare music video too.

When I was writing chapter 18 of To the Death, writer’s block began kicking my butt again. I had no idea what should happen next, because I was a pantser then (though these methods will work for plotters and pantsers alike). I had no outline to kick writer’s block’s butt for me. My mind drew a blank, and I fell asleep for a few seconds after staring at the screen for so long.

But if you’re a visual thinker, don’t sit there waiting for an idea to come to you! You’re going to be sitting there, frustrated, for a very long time. My ideas have rarely ever come to me that way. All you have to do is start putting your mind to work and get your creative juices flowing, and that what-happens-next is solved for you! These are the five simple steps I came up with for chapter 18 and still use today:

  1. Close your eyes.
  2. Play what you have so far of the scene you’re writing in your mind. Visualize it like a movie. You may find it helpful to listen to a song that fits your scene while doing this (I did).
  3. When you get to the point you stopped writing and couldn’t figure out what to write next, don’t stop the movie in your head. Keep it going. Your mind is on a roll now. What do your characters do next, or what happens next to stimulate their reaction? What do they say?
  4. Take what your mind envisioned. Do you like this idea? Usually, my first or second attempts of brainstorming what-happens-next are keepers. If you don’t like your first idea, try the method again. What else do your characters do next? What else could happen next to stimulate a reaction? What else could they say?
  5. Does your new idea make sense within the plot? Is it vital to the plot? Does it advance it? If you removed it, would the plot still work?

METHOD #2: FOR DRAMA QUEENS (ALSO LIKE ME)

Madi Grace, Drama Mama.

That might be my title if I didn’t have Lit Jesus-Repping Demon-Slaying Devil Butt-Kicker (shortened to Devil Butt-Kicker) already. If I’m upset, the whole house is gonna know. If I feel like singing, the whole neighborhood is gonna hear. If I’m in pain, it’s going to be dramatized about 100% worse than it actually is. I take everything personally. Everyone is my rival. I adore epic war soundtracks (as well as the word epic). And there’s not a lot I like more than acting out my favorite epically dramatic scenes, usually in bed to help me fall asleep or in the shower.


I’m way too dramatic for my own good. 

Does that sound like you? Probably not, because I’m a really rare type of drama queen. I probably shouldn’t have included this method.

  1. Go into a private place where no one can see and get freaked out. The bathroom usually works for me, until my siblings ask who in the world I’m talking to.
  2. Act out what you already have written of the scene you’re stuck on.
  3. What does the hero / character do next? What happens to stimulate his reaction? What is said? Act it out like you’re in a movie. Don’t stop; keep things rolling, even if you have to switch roles or walk to the other side of the room if your characters are shouting at each other from separate sides of a canyon.
  4. Take what you just acted out. Do you like it? Are you excited to write it? Or are you too worn out from getting beaten up, slammed to the floor, and screaming dramatically (what usually happens to me when I act out my scenes. Although I whisper-scream, in which I end up sounding like a suffocating emu)? It’s good exercise, I know. If that idea doesn’t suit you and if you have enough energy from that epic fight scene, act it out again with different reactions and dialog.
  5. Does your new idea make sense within the plot? Is it vital to the plot? Does it advance it? If you removed it, would the plot still work?

METHOD #3: FOR LOGICAL THINKERS (my last resort when all else fails)

I don’t usually think in logical terms. Figuring out dates and word count percentages for my novel is always frustrating for me. And don’t get me started on my math grades, guys. No, seriously. Don’t.

But dramatic and imaginative as my brain is, I’ve found I’m at ease and relieved when I have a clear, logical way to solve things. When things are organized and clearly laid out, I can relax. They aren’t messy daydreams and fuzzy ideas in my head anymore. Now it’s clear: here’s the problem, here’s what to do to fix it. Have I mentioned the word “clear” yet? I don’t think I have.

  1. Open a new document or flip to a blank notebook page.
  2. What’s your problem? What are you trying to figure out?

    I labeled my document “Big Epic Mission Brainstorming”, the 25% of my book that I needed to have a clever, strategic, plot-twisty, oh-my-gosh-the-good-guy-is-really-the-bad-guy mission laid out. I had certain but very fuzzy emotions, ideas, and pictures in my head, and I didn’t know how to logically connect them all and have them make sense to me first.

  3. What do you know needs to be solved? Create a bullet list and write down every idea for that problem you can think of. Don’t stop. Even if the idea is stupid; throw all your creative dreaming, even with its multitude of wacky ideas, onto the page to find that gem or two of geniusness.

    I knew one of my the-good-guy-is-actually-the-bad-guy characters was going to be tortured for information that would advance the plot and launch the next few scenes. I needed to know what he was going to reveal so I could know what I needed to foreshadow and plant clues for.

  4. Which solution, idea (or set of ideas, as was my case of which things I needed that character to reveal) do you like best? If you like it, go for it. If you don’t, continue brainstorming.
  5. Does your new idea make sense within the plot? Is it vital to the plot? Does it advance it? If you removed it, would the plot still work?

WHAT I DO IF NONE OF THESE METHODS WORK:

  1. I figure out why. 100% of the time, for me, it’s because I’m not excited about a scene.
  2. I figure out what I need to do to fix it. I never write unless I’m excited about what I’m writing, otherwise I’d have to force myself to (which I can totally do, but that’s when writing becomes a chore: BIG NO-NO). I reevaluate the scene’s purpose in the plot: why is it here? Is it necessary? Could the plot work if I took it out?
  3. I fix it. If the scene is necessary and I’m still not excited to write it, I change or add something to it that makes me excited to write it.
  4. Once I’ve fixed it, I try the methods again! It’s easy to solve problems and brainstorm solutions when you’re excited about what you’re writing. Most of my writer’s block comes when I’m getting bored of or frustrated at a scene.

 And tadaaa!

Three super easy and super fun methods I use to not only beat writer’s block, but totally kick its butt (as well as work through scenes I want to change). I hope they inspire or help you! Writer’s block is no fun. But these methods make kicking its butt super easy for me!

I subconsciously do the first two methods on a daily basis without even thinking, and they in and of themselves inspire new scenes. I wrote entire 8k story called Kira: It’s Not Over based off of one little mini-scene I acted out in my PJs one day. And a cute scene I brainstormed while lying in my bed one night and daydreaming is actually making its way into Warfare Book I. I outlined the scene last night. *squeals and dies*

If you’re a writer, how do you kick writer’s block’s butt? It’s almost as fun as kicking the devil’s butt. Kicking butt in general is really fun.

    So I’m not the only one who says overly epic things aloud, imagining my characters saying them? On any given night, you can find me in bed, up to my eyeballs in pillows and blankets, saying stuff like, “Power comes from within…”

    AAAAAHHH! This was a great ‘supertiredbutwannadosomethingworthwhileonthecomputerbutdontwanntakethetimetocommentbutimcommentinganyways’ post to read! I will DEFINITELY keep this in mind. AND EPIC IS AN AWESOME WORD. (that may or may not have been Mia taking over. Or Julie. She’s here right now.) You. are. epic. 😀 😀 AND I ACT OUT MY SCENES ALL THE TIMEEEE! Very dramatically. Though… it is very awkward when it comes to the scene with my protagonist is fighting with one of the slightly major characters who is a guy. Aaand… my brother walked in on me on that one. *facedesk*
    😀 😀 😀 Anyways, rest assured that you are very special. Of the four posts I’ve read, this is the only one I took the time to comment on. *Sheepish grin* I deserve the right to be lazy. XD XD

    And I am TOTALLY going over all of your posts on your journey when I start mine. Next week. *facedesk*
    Wait. There’s no desk here. *facebed* *falls asleep*

    Alrighty. ‘Night wherever you are! (heeeey, it’s tomorrow for you but today for you but tomorrow for me but that makes today for me yesterday for you since your today is my tomorrow because we’re in different time zones. *smirks* kudos to you if you figured that out.)

      Aww, not as epic as you!!

      HEHE ME. And oh my gosh, I know, right?! I was acting out a scene in which the other character was a guy and my dad walked in on me and was like o-o Almost all of my dramatic scenes are interrupted by people and it’s so embarrassing. XD

      Awww, thanks for commenting! I always love your comments. AND YES. You totally deserve the right. XDD

      AHH THAT’S SO EXCITING! If you have any questions… I like questions. XD

      I love how you put facedesk instead of facepalm XDD Or facebed. That works too.

        Epic is as epic does. wait, where’d that come from?!?! It’s not even a Bible verse! XD XD (I AM LOVING IT EVEN THOUGH L4TL IS BEING VERY SELFISH WITH HER TIME AND NOT TAKING ANY PICTURES OF ME BECAUSE SHE IS TOO OBSESSED ABOUT SEEING REAL PEOPLE. HOW DARE SHE.)

    Great post Madi! I would say wonderful ideas, but I don‘t want to inflate your ego anymore than it is. XD
    I talk to myself A LOT. And I just realized the other day that doing that isn’t normal. XD Although I don’t act full on scenes, I do act out little bits that I don’t know how to write. Honestly though, I talk to myself ANYWHERE. From the bathroom, to when I’m about to go to sleep, to when I’m doing school, and to when I’m doing dishes. My favorite place to talk to myself is outside though. I’m weird. XD But no one can do anything about it so HAHA.

      😂😂 Well, I appreciate your… honesty. 😂

      I guess I don’t talk to myself so much as I pretend to be characters and the characters I pretend to be talk to themselves. So it’s more like

      Kira (Me): *sprawled on the floor bleeding to death* Norin—Norin—I love you—
      Norin (Also me): *crying* I love you too. You’re not going to die. It’s going to be okay.

      Yeah, that’s what my family walks in on. 😂

      HAHA YES. NO ONE CAN DO A THINGGG. >:)

    Hahaha! I seriously thought I was reading my life story just then. LOL! Writer’s block is the WORST!! It makes you want to crawl in a cave and die. The tips you gave are great though! Usually when I get writer’s block I go have a coffee and a shower, and think about it. Then I ask my nine year old, or I ask my 75 year old father.

    If I’m really stumped, I just leave it, and go work on something else for a while (often doll sewing related 🙂 ). My favourite cure for writer’s block is to leave a blank, and keep going. Just leave a note and a big ol’ hole in the story. Sometimes the hole will fill itself as the plot progresses. Then I go back through afterward, and do pot hole filling.

    The most important thing about writer’s block is usually you get it because things are too complicated. So I simplify. I try to find the simplest explanations or the easiest interpretations of what’s going on. (that’s where the nine year old often comes in. 🙂 )

    If all else fails, google it. LOL! You never know what inspiring ideas google will come up with.

    Here’s an interesting perspective that I always remind myself of: You’re the writer. It’s your job to unplug the plugged up. That’s what you’re paid the big bucks for. (hypothetically of course) A plumber wouldn’t look at a clogged toilet, and say, I give up. Just do the job until it’s done. 🙂

      Oooh, I’ve done that before! The plot hole does sometimes fix itself, and that’s always nice. XD

    To kick writer’s block, I usually reread what i’ve written. Then, I see places I could expound on. Or, I go take a shower and start acting it out. Hehe, I’m a bit of a drama queen as well. My next best place to plan is right before I go to sleep. It’s the best place to think.

    These are amazing points, Madi!

      Ooh, yes. Whenever I sat down to my scene outline and got stuck, I’d reread previous scenes and I’d be on a roll again. Haha, shower acting is awesome! Ooh, drama queens are great. 😉 My brain thinks best when I’m supposed to be sleeping, too!

    “I fall asleep daydreaming scenes from Warfare (and sometimes acting them out. Yeah, in my bed.)”

    LOL SOOO ME.

    I drive my parents crazy sometimes b/c I can’t get to sleep well and I’ll stay up voice-acting random scenes that pop up in my mind. The bad part about this is that OUR ROOMS SHARE A WALL.

    I’m just getting back at them for talking, laughing, and watching movies all night that I CAN HEAR JUST AS WELL AS THEY HEAR ME.
