Most of the time I don’t have music on whilst writing, but if I do I like to listen to things that help with inspiration. I have quite an eclectic taste in music, I’m a huge fan of almost anything from the ’80’s but my tastes run wide, from Katy Perry to Slipknot and everything in between. I give each character I write their own soundtrack or album, whether or not that is revealed in the story I am writing.
Writer’s block, it hits us all at times. Writing is challenging, occasionally this can lead us to lose a bit of motivation, especially if life is busy and hard too. I’m in this position at the moment, I’ve been so busy studying for my Pilates course, on top of working, that I’ve not had the time to write, and when I have I just can’t get the flow. So, how do you overcome this? What motivates you to write? or gets you out of a slump? Here are a few ideas of things that motivate me, that you might find helpful too 🙂
