January of 2013 has been a tough time for us all with colds and flu and just plain old ordinary exhaustion. A writer must write- but what do you do when you’re too sick or tired to write?
Well, here’s a list of nine things you can do to keep developing your writerly skills when the flu has laid you low.
- Read- Great story tellers get that way by loving stories.
- Think about your story.- What comes next?
- Play word games, such as Free Rice
- Watch stories in your genre on TV- get a feel for their flow
- Hold an imaginary conversation with your character- Get to know him better.
- Do simple research online.
- Program your dreams for creative ideas
- Be still and listen to what your inspiration has to whisper to you
- Restrestrest and regain your strength to write again
And feel better soon :)…
