My Ranking Points
Dear Mr. Chainani,
Hi, my (user)name is Twilight Dreamer. My English Language Arts class is having us write stories, and so far I have the first part. Now I’m stuck. What’s a good way to rid myself of writer’s block? Thank you so much, Twilight Dreamer
Bare in mind that I’m no professional, but I just stop thinking about it for a while, then inspiration just COMES
@Twilightdreamer, I’m obviously not Soman, but as someone who has been writing a book for three years, I can tell you one thing. Summaries are everything.

I hope this helps! 😊
@Jennynacorn5, honestly? I haven’t. Writing isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure. I survived through the loving support from friends and family. Especially the people on here. And it wasn’t even the same plot for the first year. It was just me playing around and experimenting. Getting to know myself. What I liked, what I didn’t like, my strengths, weaknesses, etc. Writing is always about learning. ❤️
@Jennynacorn5, I have a few. Other than writing a summary, I’d say you need to know your characters very well, you need to be able to take constructive criticism, write dialogue as it would be spoken, (stuttering, stammering, rephrasing halfway through, trailing off when no one listens, etc). Make it believable.
Also, choose a narration style and stick to it. I had trouble with this, but you get the hang of it eventually.
Have good friends who’ll be willing to provide another set of eyes.
Keep at it! Be patient, and seek help when you need it. Another concept struggled to grasp is your health comes first. Don’t jeopardise your physical or mental health in favour of ’pushing through’.
I wish you all the best,
