How to deal with writers block:
I don’t know about my fellow writers on here but recently I’ve been suffering with writers block. I started a few projects this year and suddenly I am unable to finish them, and I’m even struggling to open the documents to psyche myself up to write something.
I asked my friends for tips, and TBH they weren’t helpful. But here’s what I came up with in my day and a half of thinking.
– Go for a loooong walk.
– Do something you wouldn’t usually do.
– Drink a cup of herbal tea.
– Create a playlist tailored to motivation.
– But have another playlist tailored to relaxing/writing.
– Go to a local coffee shop, plug in your headphones and ignore the rest of the world.
And that is all I came up with. If anyone has any other tips, please leave a comment and help a sister out.
A friend of mine just sent me a message telling me that Writers Block doesn’t exist, that it is a concept based solely on a lack of motivation. So with that new piece of info, I can add that I get motivated by living in a tidy environment, making a to do list and slapping on an amazing play list to get me in the mood to write some stuff.
Another way I’ve tried to tackle my writers block is to give myself a writing deadline, just like when I was at university, to remind myself of a routine that I used to have when I was studying.
Hope this post helps y’all :
