How to Overcome Writer’s Block [INFOGRAPHIC]

writers-block-infoI believe that writer’s block doesn’t really exist. If you are a writer, you write. However, there is no question that the words come more easily at some times than at others. What can you do when you are finding it hard to get the words from your brain, through your fingers and onto the page? Some of the ideas in this infographic may help.

Note that I said “some of the ideas.” Ignore the section that says “Be Productive.” Going through papers or organizing your junk does NOT help you write. It just kills time while giving you the feeling that you are moving forward.

The best way to bust through writer’s block? Write! As mentioned in the infographic, going for a walk or doing other exercise can help get the blood flowing and clear your mind. Take a 20 or 30 minute walk, then park your butt in the chair and write.

Get in the habit of writing every day and you will find that writer’s block is a thing of the past. Set aside time to write and follow a routine as you prepare. For example, you might write at the same time, in the same place. Go through a few steps before you start writing, such as taking a walk, getting a cup of tea and turning on your computer. Then, each time you do those things, your mind knows that it is time to write.
