It’s almost Friday and for some people that means motivation is at an all time [weekly] low. Unfortunately, work doesn’t always take Friday’s off so you have to find ways to break through writer’s block and get those writing juices flowing! So how do you do that once you realize you’ve been staring at your blank screen or piece of paper for hours? Easy!
- Get Up & Move– Take a walk, do some jumping jacks, or do a quick workout. Any thing that gets your heart pumping and blood moving will help.
- Take A Break– Sometimes the best thing you can do is to walk away from that project. Do anything other than try to write. The only key is to do something mindless so your brain can keep thinking in the background. Make a cake, doodle, read blogs related to that subject.
- Just Write– Pen to paper [figuratively or literally] and write. Don’t over think what you’re writing, that’s what editing is for. Now is the time to write whatever comes to your mind and allow the creativity to flow through you.
- Give Yourself a Deadline– It might help to know that there is an end in sight! Tell yourself you’re only working until x:xx or only for another hour. I bet you will find that after that set time you will have your creativity back and be a writing machine!
What about you? What do you do to get rid of writers block?
