Where do you get all your ideas, Dave? You write perform, coach, create film and even teach creativity -- How do you do it?
Don't you even find yourself with nothing to write about? ( Joke about, create, film, build, teach, etc.)
Hasn't everything already been done/ told/ created?
I have writer's block.
No. You have a case of lazy.
Writer's block is a completely made up thingie. It is an excuse to not write. You can't think of ANYTHING to write about - really?
Here's an idea; Make a list of nouns. Write about those. (Seriously ask me about the 5x5 exercise)
You might not be writing because you are letting your editor interfere with your writer -- Hint -- when you are writing, just write - no editing, no judging no cross outs. Just write.
Want short story ideas? Mash stuff together. A place, a device and two women. A feeling, your childhood, food preparation.
Part of being a writer ( or any sort of creative) is working. And part of that work - possibly the most of it -- is coming up with things to do. You will spend time thinking, experimenting and running up dead ends. A lot of time. Its part of the job, its part of your process.
Tonight's big idea: Creative work requires work. Often lots of it. The raw material of most creative projects is ideas; acquiring them, remembering them and trying them out. Get used to it.
