    Awesome tips! Really helpful! Love again how you point everything to God! also i love the metaphor of writer’s block;).
    i have experienced it so many times, but the one i remember the most is the time i had a good 8 weeks for a story and wrote the Majority the last week.i was so unhappy with my previous drafts, but finally got a clear mind and put my heart to it. What’s causing stressing in life?, it is striving for the impossible, perfection. But no matter what, it doesn’t define my, and if it is a flaw in character, it is something to improve. The way i come up with creativity is fiddling on the piano, setting for the mood of the scene. But my favorite technique is drawing the character, with different facial expressions and poses, thinking of the plot from there. Thanks for the tips! will be sure to use it in the future!

      And my pleasure 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!
