5. Create a writing schedule: dedicate the same span of time per day to writing and creativity. This gets you brain all primed a ready to perform. Give it at least a week to kick in.
4. Just 10: set a timer for 10 minutes where you write, edit, or brainstorm with little distraction.
3. Change your environment: head to a park, coffe shop, maybe even a museum to trigger some motivation.
2. Research: when you take time to read related articles and books it can help you understand your own point of view. Sometimes you can find glaringly missing perspectives in the literature and you can find your angle in the white spaces.
1. Stick with it: when stuck in writer’s block people tend to want to quit, but the more you work the article the more ideas you can get. So, take a breath, get some coffee and get back in there.
I love a good blogger collab. So, Blue Lilly Pad and Me (Cupcakes) teamed up to make a delish and healthy cake made from…drum roll please…watermelon!
We started off with a real life watermelon. OOOHHH AHHHH!
Washed some berries.
We cut the top and bottom of the watermelon then cut the rind away. Blue Lilly Pad was a master fruit maven. Try to get the watermelon as “cake shaped” as you can.
Next, we made the whipped cream.
2 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1Tbs vanilla extract
Add the ingredients into your mixer and whip for 6 minutes at a speed of 4. Toward the end, we sped it up to 8 for a few seconds. Mind you, we ruined our first batch by mixing it too long. It literally looked like congealed milk. Ewwww!
Dry the watermelon with a paper towel and spread your fresh whipped cream just like frosting. Blue Lilly Pad’s little, Chef Zam, helped with this stage.
We added some blueberries around the base, clearly, they were drowned in whipped cream, covered the walls of the cake with fresh coconut, added our berries to the top and of course chocolate chips. Yay, we’re done!
Blue Lilly Pad and I then had a little photo shoot. Look forward to that soon.
