What to do when you’re running low on inspiration

Often, the hardest thing is just to start writing. Trust me, I know. Even when you’re writing daily, and writing is your bread and butter, sometimes you get stuck.

There are moments when filling a blank piece of paper, or an empty document on your laptop, may seem like an impossible task or fighting a losing battle.

That’s when you may need a helping hand so that the writer’s block does not win.

The instructions are pretty straight forward.

Find a clock (if you don’t have a watch, your cell phone will do just fine) and start reciting the alphabet. When the minute’s up, note the letter and find the corresponding tip.

And that’s when the fun begins!

You can transfer the prompt into your document or simply memorize it. That’s up to you; it’s your story, after all.

There are no guidelines on how to use the prompt. Its only purpose is to kickstart your writing and get your creative juices flowing. It can be an amazing exercise in creativity if you let it.

It may be a loose inspiration or become the focal point of your story. It can be a mention in a dialog or something extremely crucial for the plot. Whatever you do with it, as long as you’re writing, is a win.

Have a go at it, and see whether such prompts help you focus and get some writing done. If it does, perhaps Writer Emergency Pack is something for you.
