Five Ways I Overcome Writer’s Block

One of the most popular questions I get asked is how I overcome writer’s block. I don’t know why I’m asked it, because I seldom suffer from it. So far in my  life, I haven’t been able to write books as fast as I think of them.

So I don’t always suffer from it, but when I do…

1. I take a shower. A hot shower relaxes me, and I suppose this is why so many new ideas are born there. I’m not exaggerating. I get tons of ideas for my stories while I’m taking a shower.

2. I lie down and ALMOST fall asleep, but not quite. Being in that twilight zone between wakefulness and sleep seems to generate creative thought. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started to go to sleep and then have had to jump out of bed to write down an idea. So, if I get writer’s block during the day, I go lie down, like I’m going to take a nap. Works every time (unless I fall asleep, lol).

3. I go for a walk. Getting the blood flowing back up to my brain might be the reason why so many ideas come to me as I’m walking. Maybe it’s the fresh air.

4. I research online. I especially find it helpful when I research the setting I plan to use in the story. So many ideas come from learning more about a specific place. Or sometimes I research the ancient myths, and BOOM!


5. I start writing. When I can’t think of what the next scene should be, I just dump my character into the middle of some action and go with it and am often taken to some really unexpected and exciting places.

What things do you do to overcome writer’s block?

Tuesday Time Warp: Back to UtopYA Con 2013

After years of rejections from agents, I took the plunge to self publish in August of 2012.  I found a professional cover artist and editor and assembled my own team. I hit “publish” on Smashwords and KDP. Then I watched my dashboards. Nothing happened!

Then in June of 2013, I attended UtopYA Con.

I learned so many useful strategies from successful authors who had taken their careers into their own hands and had decided to forge their own destinies. I took careful notes and went home and applied everything I learned. Within a few days, my life changed!

My Amazon author rank increased:


Author Rannk Aug 2012 Through May 2014

My sales increased:

Books Sold from Aug 2012 through May 2013

I now make as much money, if not more, in royalties as I do in my day job as a college instructor. My plan is to become a full-time writer in five years.

Going to UtopYA Con was one of the BEST things that’s ever happened to me. I would rate it up there with some major life-changers. Here are my top five:

1. Finding my awesome hubby
2. Giving birth to my three beautiful children
3. Going to UtopYA Con
4. Having Lasik Surgery
5. Having a hysterectomy and saying goodbye to periods forever

As you can see, UtopYA Con is pretty important to me! In addition to being a total career-changer, I made some dear friends that I can’t imagine not having in my life. I went back last year and made even more!

I will keep going to UtopYA Con for as long as I can. Going back is like visiting the place of my birth. That’s how I feel!

Maybe include your pets? Or a scene of you standing on your head? Or maybe you can SING what you like? Or rap?

The funnier the better!

I am going to pay YouTube to put this video at the top of some major searches, so plan to be viewed! The more you fangirl, the more likely your clip will be included.

So get creative and send in your file to between now and December 31st. Then watch my website to see if you made the final cut!
