Welcome to day 23! Wow, it’s gone by so fast. We’ve finally made it to spring and the weather has kindly obliged here in NYC!
Last week I recharged my motivation and inspiration at the NYC Teen Author Festival (recap coming tomorrow). I had such a blast and it renewed my writing energy. So today for those slacking (and even those on a role), I’d like to suggest you ways to renew (or prolong) your energy.
-Re-read a favorite book that gives you the warm fuzzies about writing.
-Read a new book you’ve been excited about. Re-watch an old TV show you love (may I suggest Veronica Mars? And perhaps you’ll want to participate in the discussion that will be starting on this blog soon. See the previous blog post for details).
-Go for a long walk and let your mind wander.
-Search babyname sites and see if any names spark a new character in your mind.
-Allow yourself to dabble in that project you’ve been ignoring.
-Rewrite your last scene from the opposite angle, example, if your characters get together, maybe in your new version they don’t.
-Rewrite a scene from your novel from a different POV.
The list goes on and on.
What are other ways to jumpstart your creativity and motivation?
And how are you coming along today?
