Just one short day after our launch, and we already have a title to share with you! Here at Weapenry, we want to help all writers make the most out of their careers, and one of the hardest issues we’ve run up against ourselves is getting stuck in a writing rut. You know the frustration — you can’t come up with any good ideas, everything you write feels ‘meh,’ and you’re doing just about anything to push back actually sitting down and writing.
But…we’re writers! We’re supposed to enjoy what we’re doing, and we’re supposed to (get this) actually write stuff. Go figure! But getting unstuck can be difficult. Kellie can attest to that herself! Which is why she decided to write Refilling Your Inkwell, a guide to getting motivated, finding inspiration, and conquering your writing rut.
Refilling Your Inkwell:
Getting motivated, finding inspiration, and conquering your writing rut
Published April 30, 2015
Rut, slump, funk—call it what you will, but when you’re trying to write, there are few things more frustrating. The longer you go without writing, the harder it is to jump back in. Days turn into weeks, and then weeks into months—do we even want to think about the possibility of years? And before you know it, frustration becomes doubt in both your work and yourself, building and building until you find every possible reason not to write.
No matter what stopped you from writing in the first place, giving up on your craft will never be an option. Refilling Your Inkwell offers inspiration, motivation, and tactics alike, all to help pull frustrated writers out of their ruts and get you back to the page.
