Ain’t NOBODY exempt from writer’s block? I mean no-bod-dayyyyyyy! OKURRRR!
Writer’s block is that period when you are not able to get inspiration.. It can come with symptoms like anxiety and a lack of confidence in your creative strengths. It is fueled by the pressure to produce consistently. As an anxiety sufferer, chile, shit gets real!
Many people have suggested several ways to overcome writer’s block. Go for a walk. Change your environment. Listen to music. However, I do not want you to feel like a loser whenever you experience a block. It is normal for every writer at one point or another. Besides, going through creative constipation is a signal that you are being critical of yourself.
Notwithstanding, there are several ways to maximize writer’s block. I will show you how best to go through it rather than taking a break. This will help calm your nerves about this condition through your journey as a writer.
Your first response to writer’s block is to re-evaluate your clarity. Remember your original intentions and convince yourself about the worth of your work. This process gets you back on track. You may also want to rethink your approach to your writing. It helps you create new ideas and see things from a different angle. Going through a creative stagnation instead of taking a break, usually motivates you to find new resources for writing material. Creating a writing routine can help stall off the pressure while you sort out the barriers enforced by the piece you are trying to write.
In all, you must be kind to yourself. It is not so easy to overcome writer’s block, but you can use these processes to your advantage.
Personally, I remind myself that I have the same 24 hours as Beyonce. If that doesn’t work, I turn on some Eric Thomas on YouTube. Baybeeeeeeeeeeeeee by the time I listen to him scream and holler, I’m ready to hop my ass back on the writing saddle. Hahahahahahhaha
