With any RPer, sometimes you have large amounts of inspiration, while other times you’re completely out. We all have those moments of having no inspiration to motivate us. There is no surefire way to regain your inspiration, but here are some tips that may help.
Take a break if you need it.
Sometimes the inspiration runs dry and you just need some time to recharge. Whether it is from RPing as a whole, or just a specific RP, don’t be afraid to step back for a couple days. You may suddenly have a burst of inspiration or you may just be able to return with a fresh mind Even if you still are low on inspiration.
Read/reread other RP posts.
If its a specific conversation, reread over the previous posts in the conversation. If its a specific RP read or reread both your previous posts and other RPers posts. If its RPing in general, just reread some posts from various RPs that you may or may not be in.
Listen to music.
Many RPers will say that music will inspire them. Whether its the feeling you get from the song, or the lyrics, let the music help you grow an idea.
Read books, and watch movies or tv.
Personally, I get inspiration (Often for starting RPs, but sometimes for possible character interactions) When I watch a movie or a tv show. You may see some event that would work for the situation you’re RPing, or you may notice a character similar to yours in some way.
Join a new RP and/or create a new character.
Sometimes all it takes is something new and exciting to get the inspiration flowing again. By starting with something new you should get inspired for it, which then can add some inspiration for what you were suffering a lack of inspiration with.
Plan some for later in the RP.
For example, if your character has a secret, plan for when their secret gets revealed. Plot with other RPers, and the plans can be enough to excitement to give you enough inspiration to make it through to the plan.
