Many writers when they are in the middle of a novel can lose track of where they are and are just punching out the words. When this happens, the writing can be a bit stale and lacking action.
It’s tough, but there are things a writer can do to keep the writing exciting. One of those things is to change focus by doing something else. By breaking state and writing something else, maybe some poetry, a blog post, an article or a short story unrelated to the main work takes the mind away from the novel so that when you go back to it, you can do so with a fresh approach and be more incisive in what you write.
I’m sure that all writers can relate to this problem, they are so focused on getting to the end or reaching a certain word count that they forget to tell the full story and give the writing depth and appeal.
I find that writing poetry or songs is a good way for me to break state, what is your method?
