Writer's Block And How To Cure It

We've all had writer's block at least once in our life.

Writer's Block And How To Cure It
Bay Side Journal

Writers block, it's a pain, but at the same time it happens to all of us at some point or another. So here are some ideas to help when you have writers block.

1. Listen to music

It might get juices flowing. Your creativity might come out when you listen to music you like. The music can relax you. When having writers block it is easy to get stressed and try to force yourself to write something when there is nothing there. So why not try to relax and listen to music.

2. Write

When having writer's block you don't want to write, but one of the best things is to write it out. Not having to write something specific makes it easier to write. When you have a deadline and you have writer's block it makes it more difficult to write. So just writing for fun might help get rid of that blankness that is stopping you from actually getting ideas out.

3. Look at pictures

If you look at pictures you might get some ideas of what to write. Just looking at different things could help you think of a way to be creative. Whether it is pictures of you and friends, pictures of nature, or even random pictures on the internet. They might spark something that you want to write about.

4. Looking up prompts

When having writers block your mind is completely blank usually. You don't know what to write or you have an idea and just nothing is coming to you to keep you going. I would recommend looking up prompts or even short ideas that you can start with online. There are an array of prompts to help you out and it'll be very helpful to just start you on your way to writing something.

5. Go for a run

When going for a run or doing any type of exercise your mind keeps moving. For me, when I exercise I end up thinking about random things. Exercise just helps me stop stressing and when getting stressed it's hard for someone to write.

6. Write ideas down

If something just pops into your head, write it down in a notebook or put it in your notes in your phone. That way you have something to look back on when you can't think of anything else to write. It helps a lot when need something to write about and need it right away and you don't have time to think about what you want to write.

7. Write about writers block

When not being able to write, why not write about getting rid of writers block, am I right?

Writer's block kind of sucks, but we all go through it. Every writer at least once in their life will have a difficult time thinking of ideas and that's okay. You just need to find the best way for you to get rid of it and maybe it's one of the ideas above and maybe it's something else. Just find what helps you get rid of writer's block.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
