By on April 22, 2020

When we are feeling disheartened about our writing, we might worry that we don’t have that spark, that special something, that je ne sais quoi that makes them stand out. When we are feeling like this, it is sometimes helpful to step back and take stock of our lives. 

Writers need to up for experiences. While we can use our imaginations and creative license to write, if we don’t have an adventurous, unique, action-packed life ourselves, it’s hard to find those exciting ideas or inspiration we need to keep finding new things to write about.

So what are some of the ways you can engage in the rollercoaster ride that is life and inject some excitement into your existence? You can become more extraordinary and have more unique experiences by following these helpful tips:

Be fearless

Fear holds us back in so many ways. And while there are certain precautions we all must take to stay healthy and not endanger others, we also all carry around fears that can cripple us and mean that we don’t live our lives to the fullest. Do some soul searching to understand what yours are and consider what you could put in place to help overcome them. 

Take a trip

Travel opens us up to new worlds and experiences. Take the time to travel the world, experience new cultures, and meet people from all walks of life. Down so will give you so many ideas and beautiful things to write about. 

Talk to strangers

Obviously, do so with appropriate amounts of caution! However, being more open and willing to talk to other people means you get to understand human beings better and get to hear their stories. Most people have something interesting to say, so by keeping your ears open and taking the time to talk to people, you could find new inspiration for your book. 

Do some public speaking

Public speaking is something that a lot of people find stressful. So challenge yourself to have your thoughts heard and find a way to do some public speaking. You’ll not only have the chance to say something important or dear to you but also will be left feeling exhilarated and confident as a result. 

Write about your darkest secrets

Writing is an opportunity to get to know yourself better and to be truly honest with yourself. If you want to write something raw, brave, and beautiful, then you need to dig deep and open those doors that you’ve bolted shut for a while. 

Be honest with your feelings

Don’t try to be someone you are not. Be honest and accepting of who you are. Explore your behavior and how you feel and write it all down. Not only will this be so cathartic, but it will also help you connect with readers on a more personal level too.

Find adventures in the everyday

To be extraordinary, you don’t have to travel to far-flung lands or jump out of airplanes at the weekends. Instead, you need to find ways to make your life more adventurous right here, right now. There are plenty of magical, wonderful, exciting things in the world, and many of them are right on your doorstep - you just have to open your eyes. 

If you want to be an extraordinary writer, you need to do extraordinary things, and the above will help you to find ways to be extraordinary every single day!
