The Simplest, Most Effective Way To Overcome Writer’s Block

Are you struggling for words? 

Stuck in a loop? 

Don’t know how to proceed? 

Do you feel like everything you’re writing is a pile of s***? That you’re making everything ten times worse than what you’d originally put down on paper?

Well fear not my friends, for I have the answer and boy oh boy is it a doozy!

I hope you’re ready because this will surely blow your mind.

Here it is…

The simplest, most effective way to overcome writer’s block is to…

KEEP WRITING

Yep, it’s that simple. 

Keep going. 

Keep plugging away and never give up. 

You have what it takes but you have to keep going.

You have to have the faith you’ll figure it out. That the words will come. Sometimes it takes revisiting and editing a damn post so many times you’ll wanna throw your laptop (and yourself) off the top of the highest skyscraper you can climb. 

Don’t do that.

Keep going. The struggle will pay off in the end I promise. Trust. 

I’ll add a couple more bonus tip for you.

You don’t have to write anything you don’t want to. Make sure you enjoy it.

Make sure you’re doing it because you love and believe in what you have to say

Forget the number of likes. That’s your ego’s need for attention. Listen to your heart. Your mind is meant to be its servant not the master. 

And if it really is too much. If you have been writing incessantly but only seem to be digging yourself an even messier hole to write yourself out of. 

Get outside and go for a walk. Or spend half an hour punching a bag. Whatever it is get out and do some exercise then come back to what you where stuck on. 

This always works wonders for me. In fact some of my greatest creative inspirations and solutions come from walking in my local park everyday. 

It really is be the best antidote. But once  you’ve had a healthy amount of time away don’t forget to come back and tackle that beast of a post you were stuck on. 

You will defeat it, if you simply keep writing…

(Sorry I ran out of words to say at this point so went outside to listen to the birds chirping in my local park. If you have any suggestions please do leave them in the comments section below.)

  • Excellent advice! Coupled with ‘remember the loving reasons’ I feel this is a surefire route to more successful blogging 😊 for me yoga is a great form of both exercising and clearing my mind.
    Enjoy your daily walks, and sometimes a ‘…’ is all you need!

  • I really love this! I have struggled a lot recently because there only seems to be one thing to talk about and that’s the thing I’m sick of hearing about. But I have found that some of the posts I write, just for the sake of writing are the ones that seem most popular. These are the ones which I don’t put a great deal of effort into, I just type. The ones I do work really hard on aren’t always the ones that people go for. I really like your post anyway and it has made me feel better knowing that I’m not the only one who keeps getting stuck. 🙂

    • Hi Amy. I’m glad you liked it. I completely agree. I’m new to the game of blogging. That post was something that came quite naturally but far from one of my longer posts in which I’ve a great deal more effort! I think the hard posts are still worth pursuing but it’s good to mix it up. Don’t write what you think others want to hear. Write want you want. Write from the heart. I’m sure people will probably want to hear that more. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future 😊
