I know lots of writers who suffer from writer’s block. I like Barbara Poelle’s creativity prompts in the Oct 2018 Writer’s Digest, including: “Take your favorite antagonist in any film or novel and write a scene where they are the hero.” I love Salina Yoon’s Duck, Duck, Porcupine books. This makes me want to try to write a scene where Big Duck is not a fool and is actually the hero. That would be quite a challenge!
She goes on to say, “That blank document doesn’t have to be your next opus–it just has to keep the current flowing until you find that one piece of driftwood and hang on for the ride.” Such great advice. You don’t have to write something great–just write SOMEthing!
