In this week’s episode, Lucinda and Mariëlle talk about being stuck and how they get out of it.
Here are some of the topics that came up:
- Before you act on your being stuck, it’s always good to try to figure out WHY it is you’re stuck—how did you get here?
- That while Mariëlle’s writing lots these days, and is definitely not stuck on her current project, she has to admit she’s actually a little stuck on her other project, which is why she put it in a drawer for now and allows herself to focus on her current WIP
- When Lucinda gets stuck, she steps away from the computer and allows herself to get messy by writing long-hand, which activates a different part of the brain than typing on a keyboard does
- That, when all else fails, a new notebook might do the trick, since the breath of fresh air that new notebooks bring along might help you in finding a different perspective (in case you needed another excuse to get yourself a new notebook 😉 )
