Brain dumps are a good way to get out what is blocking your creativity. Take some time to release what is clogging your creative flow. You may need to write it all down. You may need to paint it out. Whatever is the most creative way to release this… do that! Give at least fifteen minutes for the exercise but it is best to take all the time you need for it. You never know. You may find solutions to problems, answers to questions, or clarity where the was none. At the very least, you go it out and can let your creativity flow like you need it to again.
Sorry to have fallen behind…
Write from the perspective or your favorite super hero or villain (not their alter ego) ordering coffee from Starbucks.
Exercise your use of imagery. Describe something in a poem or prose without actually saying that that something is.
Create a bucket list for your character. Or create one for yourself and turn it into a poem or an essay.
Perform a brain dump. Take thirty minutes and just empty the entire contents of your brain onto some paper or into a word document. Do no editing. Do no formatting. Just write it all down. You can sort through it later.
Take 15 minutes to perform a brain dump, in whatever format works for you.
Then write for another 15 minutes about what you would like to be on your mind, different from what was. (If you write fiction feel free to assign the thoughts to characters and/or write out dialog.)
