Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

What Do you Do When You Have Writer’s Block?

Do you just sit there, staring at the blank page or screen, willing the words to flow?

Do you just let your stream of conciousness fill the page with inane thoughts and babbling?

Do you drink copious amounts of coffee, hoping the caffeine will jar something lose? Or that the frequent trips to the porcelain bowl will help you think?


Do you sit in the sun, letting the heat burn into you while you file away what you feel, to use in your writing?

Do you people watch and describe what they’re wearing, their actions and mannerisms in your head, and then create drabbles out of the different things you see?

Do you read a lot, and widely so as to find a writing style that resonates with you?

Do you scribble into notebooks, in illegible handwriting and hoping that when you come back to it on a later date you can still read it?

Do you ask yourself random questions and then writing the answers down, and then realise that you’ve actually filled up a good portion of the page?

What do you do?
