Are you suffering from writer’s block? Most professional writers and even non-writers, struggle with finding ideas at some point in their career.
Writer’s block is annoying enough when you’re not a professional writer. But if you depend on writing for your livelihood, it’s more than annoying. It can be a career-breaker.
Writers block (or creative block) doesn’t have to slow you down. You can overcome it.
In my experience writer’s block usually means one of several things:
- You’re stuck. You don’t know what to say next. You may be in the middle of a project or trying to get started. It doesn’t matter. You have no ideas.
- You don’t feel like writing. No matter what words you put down, they don’t seem to work.
Both types of writer’s block can be equally frustrating if you don’t know how to deal with them.
In this post, I’ll tackle each of these problems. Then I’ll share some more resources to help you overcome writer’s block. For even more types of writer’s block and ideas on how to fix them, review my earlier post on Creative Block.
