How do i start writing again?

1

I started a diary when i was like 7 about stupid kid stuff. I’ve written in it since last year and now have outgrown my baby pink Bratz diary so i just started writing on loose leaf sheets. I decided to buy a new journal in December and haven’t touched it since. I feel so bad because when i wrote it felt awesome, i felt awesome even if i was writing about a bad situation. I use to write in between classes, sort of forcing myself to write to see if i felt any better. I can’t find motivation to write again. Any suggestions ?

just write how you feel, anything that comes to mind, about your day, what you learned what you ate and what you thught, anything that comes to mind. hear your faovorit type of music, read journal or poems online, please excuse my english hahaha

Stop over-thinking it or over-feeling it ;D and just spit out whatever comes to mind like the above person said. Get into that place where you feel relaxed. That also usually helps. Listening to music helps my thoughts flow. Maybe it would help you too.

I love keeping a journal too. I think it's really healthy and helpful. Also, I always feel better when I re-read my old journal entries and see how much wiser I have become and see good changes in myself. You could get yourself in a routine if you want to write more. Such as writing at least a page before you go to bed a night. Rather you just want to write out a playlist, or what you did that day. I like to write short poems but I don't always have my journal handy to write in so I will type them into the notepad on my phone and later scribe them into my journal. You could try that as well, or even start keeping a private blog.

I think you need to have some quiet time. I find when i write my poems i can't have distractions around me. Nobody around, phone & T.V switched off absolutely no distractions - just you and your thoughts. Don't feel the need to pressure yourself into it as well. It will just flow when you're ready. Maybe you have to much going on in your head that you can't seem to break it down on paper. Just take a couple of deep breaths and lay there in silence for a couple minutes. I hope it helps!

If you make it more of a special part of your day or night, it might be easier to get into. Devote an hour or so to just be with yourself and express everything you are at that moment. I've been writing and it's a bit of a ritual for me. I take a long shower, make a cup of tea, get comfy and get to business.It also seems really hard, I know, like you've somehow forgotten or lost the power to express yourself, but don't rush it. It'll come back to you.You can do it =]

At school I take a creative writing class and it's cool because that's an hour out of my day that I am being forced to write. In class we were talking about getting into a habit of writing, and my teacher said try the twenty one day challenge. What this is, is if you are doing one thing for twenty one days straight you may make it a habit, so try that. It's all in yourself to start writing again. If you are just writing about your daily events then write away, realise how cool it is when the future you goes back and reads what you were going through in that point in time. If you are writing stories and poetry, try reading other peoples work to get inspired. Another option is you could start writing a little bit in a week and then move to more writing. Maybe set an alarm on a phone that reminds you to write everyday. You were writing daily at one point of time, and you can do it again!

stop. drop everything.

artists get on artist blocks, mucisians get on musician blocks, writers get on writers blocks. the only way to unblock your creative outlet is by going at it.

Just relax and let the juices flow. Don't pressure yourself into writing because that will just create more block. Find a place where you are centered like a hill or maybe your room and just let your mind wander.. it'll come :]

Feel. Think. Read. Watch. Be present and be inspired, normally the best inspiration comes randomly instead of you trying to force it on yourself.

Maybe you need some rest. At least, It works for me. All the time. When I can’t keep doing something, O am taking a holiday and do just nothing. It always easy to return to the work after that. And you can read texts written by someone else. That quite effective too. For example, I enjoy the way how essay writer service write about writing, blogs writing and so on. Surely those guys understand something about writing that I can’t put my finger on. Very inspiring.
