Change Your Environment (3/16)

Changing your environment can be a highly effective method of overcoming writer’s block and getting the words to start flowing.

Something as simple as changing the position of your chair or mixing up the layout of your working space can be enough to give you the change of perspective needed to stimulate new ideas.

Other times, you may need to change your environment entirely by heading to a cafe, a co-working space or library. However, you need not limit yourself to quiet locations. Places where you can people watch and observe interactions going on around you are great for developing story ideas, building characters and expanding your descriptive language.
