How to Deal With Writer's Block

Writer’s block. It’s something we have all dealt with at some point or another, and we all know how annoying a feeling it is. I had a bad case of it this week just trying to find something to write about, so I figured why not share some tips to get you out of it when it happens to you!

  1. 1. Listening to music

    Sometimes the words of other people can give you that boost you need to formulate your own words. Plus, different kinds of music stimulate different parts of the brain, so try different genres if you still find yourself stuck.

  2. 2. Take a walk

    If you’re sitting at your desk and staring at your laptop and getting nowhere, get up and take a walk! Getting your blood flowing and your body moving can help relax you, and you’re more likely to get ideas if you aren’t tense and stressed

  3. 3. Watch a short video

    It could be a short episode of a TV show or a YouTube video, but sometimes a quick distraction can help clear the mind and hit refresh, maybe even providing an idea to write about.

  4. 4. Have a conversation with someone

    When I say have a conversation with someone, I don’t mean texting. I mean an actual, vocal conversation with someone. Talking out loud with another person can give you an outlet to bounce ideas off of, relax, and comfort you (especially if they’re having the same problem as you).

It’s never fun or easy, but these are just a few ways to get through your writer’s block. And remember, we’ve all been there, so you’re not alone!
