Here’s something to try every once in a while when your own writing just doesn't seem to be going anywhere.
Forget about your own writing for the day and try to help another writer instead.
If you have a writing buddy in your area, give him or her an encouraging phone call.
If you’re on a listserv for writers and notice that someone is having a tough time with a writing project, offer to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on.
No matter where you are in your own writing career, there is always someone who is at least one step behind you and can use your help.
Offer this writer your help today and see how it helps you with your own writing.
