Camp Care Package: Shake things up!

Your daily Camp Care Package is brought to you in partnership with We Need Diverse Books. Author Alexandra Duncan brings us this week's Camp Care Packages:

Sometimes a different point of view can help you get unstuck when you’re writing. Try writing your scene from a different point of view (i.e. first person instead of third person, or vice versa), or change your format by writing in the form of a poem or play. Or, if you adhere to bestselling author Beth Revis’s advice, which I’ve always found helpful, it might be time to blow something up!

How do you escape from writer's block? Share your thoughts with Alexandra, or thank her for today's #CampCarePackage!

Camp Goings-On

Today's Writing Challenge

Follow Alexandra's advice, and shake things up in your story! (Get creative with it, and think of all the ways this could happen. Try something you've never tried before.)
