Stop Writing Mid-Sentence to Ward Off Writer's Block
Jun 05, 2009 16:16
Finding yourself only occasionally inspired to write things down and get your word work done? One writer, by way of a Hemingway quote, found that stopping mid-sentence left her mental engine primed for the next session.
That doesn't mean, of course, writing half a sentence and stepping away, you sly, sarcastic types. What Nadia Ballas-Ruta got from Ernest Hemingway's short passage on writing was that stopping while you're "going good" leaves your mind with something to develop between now and the next time you sit down to it, whether that's after coffee break or tomorrow:
The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do that every day … you will never be stuck ... That way your subconscious will work on it all the time. But if you think about it consciously or worry about it you will kill it and your brain will be tired before you start.
Other suggestions for writer's block include drafting the work in email and writing about not writing. We'd like to see you write your own tips about not being able to write in the comments.
