You’ve been busy with school/work and haven’t been able to give any time to your WIP and now that you are relatively freer, you want to start writing again, so you open up your WIP and try to get back into the flow of writing, but it isn’t just that easy is it?
So, here, today, I am going to share some tips you could use to get back into a writing mood after an abstinence period!
I think what one should do is just start small by rereading what you’ve already written over some course of time or looking over your planning for the plots and characters if you have that done somewhere explicitly and neatly.
The thing is, no matter how good your memory is one can not remember every detail and details are important when writing a book so rereading and looking over plots will help jog your memory and also get you back into the flow of the book so that when you finally do start the writing process again, it is easier for you to do so!
Another thing that I think can help is setting a particular goal. If you have a goal, you feel more obliged to work since you want to complete it and so you start writing so you can make progress and once you start writing, everything clicks into place and book, suddenly, you’re done with some thousand words and your story is moving forward!
Just reading, in general, is also a great motivating factor to write. When you read a boom that touches your heart or one that you completely despise, you realise why you need to have your story out in the world for others to enjoy and that is what really makes me keep writing and moving ahead.
So those are three small tips but those are all I use to help me get back into writing! I would love to learn more tips from all of you for the next time I have a problem with this! So leave me some tips on how to get back into writing in the comments below.
