So many times,writer ‘s complain of writers’ block. One of the best things to do for it is to keep on writing. By this, I mean, push forward one word after another. Don’t worry about whether that section of writing is very good and don’t worry about editing it as you go. Just push ahead. By doing so, you will teach yourself that writer’s block doesn’t have a hold on you. Yes, that section will need extra attention when you edit your book or story, but it’ll be worth it to keep from getting caught up in the drama of writers’ block and all the lamenting that goes with it.
Another good way to keep from succumbing to writer’s block is to always think of your writing as just another way of communicating. If you’re not very good at speaking, then this idea will probably not do you much good, but if you are fairly good at carrying on a conversation, then just carry on a conversation with the paper. Talk to it. Tell it what you would want to say to it if it were a person and you were telling it a story. And write it all down while you are telling it. That way, you can ease up on the formality of your writing a bit, and before long, you will start to develop your own style.
So, before you write, cancel from your mind the thought that there is any such thing as writer’s block. Instead, realize that the words are all inside you. Maybe you need to just slap them down to be re-written later; but, by doing so, you will be moving ahead, you will be telling your brain that you are not going to be stymied by writers’ block, and you will assure yourself that you know that you can circumvent any such problems.
If you have other ideas on how to keep writing when the words don’t seem to come, please leave a comment.
