Episode 104 – How to Deal with being Stuck

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 😉 )
