When I Just Can’t Write

There are those times when I just can’t write. I may even have great ideas in my head but they get stuck like the glue bottle with the big glue booger in it that won’t come out.

Reasons why I can’t write:

  • My head is too full
  • My head is empty
  • My life is too busy to stop and write
  • Not enough sleep

Ways to get myself started again:

  • Sleep (sometimes it’s not going to happen)
  • Wait until everything calms down
  • Squeeze in my writing anywhere I can – Evernote app is great for this
  • Read books, watch inspiring movies and TV, read manga (I think of it as recharging my writing batteries)
  • Get some time alone

Sometimes these still don’t work. What do you do?

Evernote

If you have any kind of Android device, I recommend you try out the Evernote app. It is also an app available on Google Chrome, and what it does is connect your PC or Mac (I think) to your Android device using a notepad-type application. You can type on your computer and stick it into a note on Evernote and then pick it back up in your Android device. You can type something up on your Android and then get it onto your computer too.

I use Ever to take notes for my book reviews while I am using the Kindle app to read books. I can jot down thoughts while I read so I can refer to them later for the review. I can also use it to jot a quick note about any writing ideas I have so that I can leave the laptop closed.

The website, where you can access any of your notes on any browser is https://www.evernote.com/
