Writer’s block. A lot of writers struggle with it. But what you do with it is what matters. Before we talk about solutions, which will be the next post, let’s talk about the problem.
Common causes of writer’s block:
Timing: The time to write is just bad. Your ideas may need to stew a little longer before writing them down.
Fear: A lot of writers struggle with fear, putting their ideas out there for everyone to see and critique tears them apart. Fear is a major reason some writers never become writers.
Perfectionism: You want everything to be too perfect before you ever touch a keyboard. You try to get it perfect in your head and never do, so you never begin.
So how do we wipe away this enemy?
It’s a tough question to answer, and I’m afraid I don’t have a great solution. I’ve wrestled with writer’s block on many occasions, and each one was tough.
Here's a list of fun things to do when you have writer's block:
Go for a walk.
Play. (I usually play with my psp: Assassin's Creed, god of war etc)
Change the environment where you write your book
Read a book
Listen to music
Gist with a friend
Watch a movie
I hope this helps! Watch out for this space: Tips to cure writer's block is coming soon!
