This activity is designed to get you over the obstacle of writer’s block or free you from the ‘blank page’ syndrome. If this is your first attempt at writing, you might be experiencing some doubt in your abilities. But remember, even the great writers had to start somewhere—they weren’t born great. They achieved success through practice and feedback. Likewise, it is only the act of putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard that will enable you to hone your craft.
The most essential ingredient to getting over writers block is research.
If you feel confident that you can write, go ahead and describe a scene from your book. If not, here are some questions to help you get started:
Whose eyes are you looking through? Or, whose thoughts are you thinking?
The second ingredient in overcoming writer's block is being in a relaxed state of mind with a high amount of positive motivation or passion.
If you keep asking yourself questions like the ones above and following through with decisions, you need never run out of ideas. Don’t forget the rule of cause and effect: it is the characters that drive the conflict because they have a need or a want.
