How to keep your creative juices kicking?

6 Years Ago


Recently, I feel like not writing at all as if all I have created were trash and as it doesn't mean anything at all. I don't know why, so I want to ask you how I will be inspired to actually write seriously. I think I lost my heart awhile there. I will thank anyone who will reply in advance. Thanks, need replies~

oh, I'm going through the same. But I'm glad to say that I'm recovering from that stage. I think it's just your head taking a little break. The grass is always green on the other side of the hill. Be patient. Try looking at things differently, since you're not writing now-a-days. You're most likely to draw inspiration from something totally unexpected at this stage. I won't say that I'm a specialist when it comes to stuff like this, but this is what I'm trying to do as well.

P.S = Why don't you try writing about your current situation? Even if it turns out to be trash, at least you'll have something to start with! My latest poem 'Sleeping Under Snowflakes' is a result of what I've suggested to you. And I don't want to show off, but I'm really proud of that piece. 

I know, maybe you're feeling guilty about not writing anything lately. It's one of the top 10 signs of being a writer (I looked it up on the internet). :D

I hope this reply has served its purpose.

Forever and Always

What I usually do is watch some videos or read books to get ideas into my head. 
Like sometimes I watch music videos and try to expand and add onto the story while adding my own components to it. I'm not saying to copy it, but if you watch several of them, you could find a way to combine them and just add your own imagination to it. I find it a lot of fun. And sometimes an idea just pops up after listening to some of your favorite songs and all that. It's the same way with books, but you always need to be original :) Like I'll read some of my favorite stories and I might hate how one of the characters chooses one of the boys over the other. I might use that hatred (maybe the word is too strong) and make it so that it pleases me. You know what I mean? If you're confused, you can always inbox me and I'll try to help :D

Wah, thanks for replying (though I did email everyone for this). Haha, but nonetheless, thanks again. I just feel like there's something wrong with my head that's why it doesn't want to work. I feel like taking a break but I can't. I still see myself holding a pen though I stopped at few words and that's sad.

Relax your brain, and remain calm for a while. Allow the muse to draw you closer, don't force yourself into it. After you've free your mind, brain, from any imagination. Then do those things that you normally do that sprout out the muse in you. Then allow the muse to overwhelm you before you set your pen on a paper. Alway remain calm.

Whoa, thanks :D 
I kinda feel ashamed posting this forum because the group was meant to let the others have the hang of being able to write with the 33 ways to stay with the creativity. But thanks again and yeah, I'll take the advice, it's wonderful.
