Writer’s block – every writer has experienced it without exception – bestselling novelists, award-winning screenwriters and brilliant copywriters, like the ones who work at Easy2Access. There just seems to come a time when the flow is broken and words just won’t come. It could be caused by fear, fatigue, bad timing, or even immobilising perfectionism.
What to Do When Writer’s Block Hits
Thankfully, there are ways to overcome it. Keep reading the blog as we reveal several tried and tested solutions that you can use when you find yourself hitting that wall.
Often, you just need to get out of your head. Take a walk, hit the gym, or go for a run – whatever best suits you. When you come back to your screen, you should find your creative energies rejuvenated.
Switch off your phone, mute all notifications, maybe even block out environmental distractions with good, focus-enhancing music. You may find that you just have too much on your mind and too much going on.
Stop Working & Play for a While
Sure, you’re on deadline and it’s serious business, but writing is a creative pursuit. You need to relax and enjoy and get into a playing mindset. Stop for a while and switch on your favourite game console, or play your favourite sport. Remind yourself that play is productive.
Speak to Someone Who Boosts Your Confidence
Sometimes you just need to hear a friendly voice. Call your best friend and have them remind you why you have every reason to be confident in your abilities.
Sometimes you need to zoom out from your text and go back to some higher level ideas. Pull out a pen and paper and draw a min/max. Let the ideas just come and go again without judgment and you could be able to get around whatever it is that’s been jamming your flow.
