As playwrights, juggling the whole writing thing with every day life is hands down one of our biggest challenges. Often, by the time we tick off enough of our to-do lists to sit down and get some actual writing done, we’re then slapped in the face with a blank page, not knowing how to fill it.
It’s pretty easy to end up in a frustrating cycle where we hopelessly try to squeeze everything and then feel guilty when our creative brain doesn’t quite fire up in the way we want it to, when we want it to.
The truth is, there aren’t many writers who have time to sit in front of their laptop all day casually typing up their latest masterpiece without distraction. And even those who do aren’t immune to writers’ block , scrolling through Instagram or watching the kettle boil instead of writing. The trick with it all really is to make the writing time we do have, fully count.
With that in mind, in March 2019, we created #WriteHacks, a series of life hacks for writers which were sent directly to inboxes throughout March. We collected hacks from a really exciting bunch of people from playwrights to producers (and of course. the LPW team!), providing inspiration and top writing tips.
