Stuck? See something else.

If you’re like most writers, you probably visualize what you write.

You see the room that your characters are in.  You see the color of your character’s hair.  You see the clothes they are wearing.

If you’re like most writers, you probably get writer’s block now and then too.

Then what do you do?

Here’s one of my tricks for breaking the block:

See your characters in a totally different room.  Change their hair color.  Take off their clothes.

Writer’s block is writer’s rut.  Just seeing the situation differently forces you to think differently.

And when you think differently, well, that’s when the creativity comes, whether you’re writing or budgeting or whatever.
