What is writer’s block and how can we overcome it? (3 effective tips)

I want to write, but I don’t know what.  This is the sentence that almost all the times we hear it from writers or amateur writers.  We have inspiration, but we actually don’t know how to put words onto the paper.  Well, dear reader it happened to me, it maybe happened to you too and maybe you are out there reading this blog post and thinking “I should get to my writings or else I’m losing my audience”.  It’s not easy to write. And surely it’s not easy to get every time inspired by something, but it’s easy to find the cause of why it happens and to learn from it for future purposes.  To be honest I’ve been missing writing… I’ve left it for a period of time because I was feeling unsure if I was doing good enough or not.  If my audience liked it or not, but in all this mess I understood that it’s not about my audience but about me.  If I enjoy that matters the most.  So, in today’s post I want to share with you guys, 3 effective tips on how to overcome writers block.

1# Don’t be afraid to share original ‘stuff’

One thing that I should be honest with is the way I perceived blogging and how I had to fit in, in a certain circle in order for people to read me.  Nobody writes perfect and niches are great deal, but if you like writing about different topics than go for it! People do love original writings and when you feel that writer’s block is near, that’s because you focus to much on the public opinion and not yourself.  Writers block gets there when you stop writing what you like and enjoy and start creating content just for the sake of likes and shares.

2# Think. Put on paper. Start writing. Repeat

Writing is a creative process which constantly must be repeated. By this I mean, it’s not enough to get inspired, and have an idea in your pocket.  Writing must be done every day, on a daily basis.  You get a writing’s block, because you don’t repeat the process of writing. By this is meant that writing comes in different forms.  It can be an entry in your diary or even scribblings for your next book.  So in order to avoid writing’s block, produce every day a paragraph or two of writing.  You’ll see that actually writing’s block it doesn’t exist, mostly it’s an excuse for us to not write in the first place.

3# Make time for meditating

Ideas don’t come every time when we seat at the table to write.  They do sometimes come in different circumstances and one thing that I have seen and proved to me is that mostly of my great ideas came while watching an inspirational movie, TV-series or even going out with or without friends and just having fun.  Ideas come from experiences and experiences come from moving yourself out of your comfort zone. So, in order not to have writing’s block, experience more and do more things out of the usual work-home routine. 

Writing’s block is awful and it really annoys you, but don’t get discouraged even if it comes by.  Instead find some ways to overcome it and enjoy the writing’s process and its journey.
