7 Writing Prompts to Help Beat Writer's Block

Writer's block can wreak havoc with your creation abilities and whenever it hits me I struggle to get my mojo back. It completely stops me from writing a word and even conjuring up images in my head is difficult. Sometimes it can takes months to disappear.

However, the right image or words can inspire me and I'll be able to write three pages in no time. Usually I'll scour the internet looking for that image or the words that will break my writer's block and after hours and hours of searching I'll find it. There are so many websites out there that list journal writing ideas or little snippets of a story to try and inspire and they are the first place I look. I've done it so many times now that I've started to get a list of my own and thought I would share it with you.

If you're fighting writer's block at the moment I hope that these will help somehow.

1.  You're walking through the woods, it's dark...

2.  Ever felt like a dream was real? What would happen if dream world and real world collided?

3.  A woman revisits her hometown and bumps into her first love...

4.  A person finds out they have a new gift/super power.

5.  A holiday island. Sun, sea, sand and hidden mysteries.

6.  You're plagued by texts for weeks then you find out who they're coming from...

7.  A young boy, hands stained red, walks into a police station crying.

At the moment that's all I have but even reading them inspires me and I have my own little scenes and short stories flowing around in my head.

Do you have inspiring words you turn to whenever writer's block hits you? What techniques do you use to beat it?
