Sometimes you just can’t get the juices to flow. Sitting there and staring at the blank page is just a waste of time. So what can you do?
Turn on the TV. Browse the YA section at your library or local indie bookstore. Take a run/walk/exercise class. Turn on the radio. Do some gardening. Go hang out at the mall. Take a scenic drive. Sing at the top of your lungs. Play mini golf. Eat chocolate. Plant a tree. Go for a hike. Take some pictures. Look at your high school yearbook. Get a margarita with a friend.
Do something else. You’ll find inspiration in the strangest places.
