In case anyone doesn’t already know, I’ve been working on building the world for my latest novel entitled Isle of Exiles. It’s the part of the writing process that I thoroughly hate. Currently I’ve gotten stuck on the setting of my novel and doing everything I can to figure that out.
This has brought up an interesting question: What do we do to spark creativity?
I have a few tricks that usually work for me. A lot of the things are simply done to get my mind off of the story. Things like reading, watching a movie, or blasting some bad guys on the PS3.
There are some others that I’ll do while I’m in the middle of writing a scene. Stuff like taking a nice hot bath or an extended shower.
So now that you guys know some of my tricks, anyone else have trick that works for them?
