3 Ways to Breathe New Life into your Writing

Of late, not a great deal of ‘hardcore’ writing has taken place at Virtually All Sorts.  I’ve chilled out for a couple of weeks and in that time, an amazing thing happened…

Writing ~ How I Breathed New Life Into My Writing By Chatting To A Like-minded Friend, Brainstorming And Setting Goals And Plans

Well a few amazing things happened really but these are what kicked it all off:

I hooked up with a friend one night.  

She had asked for a chat about the best way to approach getting her book(s) published, knowing that I’ve published a few ebooks myself.  She’s in a similar position to mine with Fizzle & Wizzle (my children’s book series) and boy, did I need that chat.  Perhaps a bit naively I thought it would be plain-sailing with F&W.  I really believe in my children’s series and that’s why I was convinced it would be funded and in print by now… but never, ever give up!

Renewed vigour

Anyhow, our chat gave me a renewed vigour to give it all a kick back into touch.  Not only that, but while kicking F&W back into touch, I came up with yet another idea for a book and started brainstorming that too!  A completely different genre.  It’s so true that when you step away for however long, you then come up with lots of ideas and your ideas just keep flowing!… 🙂

Making plans

So, after this lovely chat, we got our heads together for our respective projects, made firm plans and then my friend popped her shades on, declaring that the future was so bright and I toddled off, my writing box precariously balance between my elbow and my hip while I coaxed it into my car boot.  It could have ended in tears, but thankfully it didn’t…

So although not much hardcore writing did take place over the summer, quite a bit of brainstorming and revisiting did!

So have you worked out the 3 things you can do today to breathe new life into your writing?

Get together with a like-minded friend, brainstorm, make a plan.

Has this happened to you – have you taken a step back from something and found a new approach when you least expected it – writing or otherwise?

  1. I often feel pulled in any directions and really enjoyed the slower pace of the summer as it gave me the opportunity to get my teeth into my writing. Sounds like you have some fantastic projects up your sleeve. Wishing you success. #TalkaiTues

  2. Whenever I feel at a bit of a writing stalemate, I take a step back. Even if it’s only for five minutes, I always feel I come back to it renewed rather than frustrated. I like your idea of focusing on one thing at a time instead of trying to flit between them all in one day.

  3. Sounds like ideas are well and truly flowing now Carol! And a bit of focus sounds sensible – it’s tricky where there are lots of different things that you want to do though – I struggle with that! Looking forward to hearing more, as ever. Thanks for linking to #WhatImWriting x

  4. Yes, I agree that focusing on one thing is the way to go, not that I take that advice myself! It’s good to have that break so you can take a step back and see where you need to put that focus. Best of luck.
