I believe that most writer's block is actually a good thing--except when it's pure procrastination. Writing requires that the writer be ready to express her thoughts and emotions. Even if what is being written is a report that most would consider boring, the writer still calls upon a creative process to clearly communicate the concepts and facts.
As the Writer Success Coach, I transform writers into authors. Have you written a book or are about to? Then your next step is to join the Book Writer Success Boot Camp and learn everything you need to know to get that book ready to publish.
Today's blog is a combination of Video (Vlog) and written content. I hope you enjoy both!
CaZ here, the Writer Success Coach. Back for Day 2 of Jessica Peterson’s Video Challenge. Did you notice that it’s actually day 3? Yep! I missed a day!
What do you do when a day doesn’t go as planned?
What do you do when a project isn’t moving in the direction you want or as fast as you’d like?
When it’s a writing project that is stuck, we often say we have Writers Block
My authors often ask me how to break out of writers block; ask me how to get started again when the words are stuck.There are a number of tricks and techniques that I teach and that work. The most reliable trick is not a trick at all. It’s simply to give yourself permission to not write that particular subject at that moment.Instead, sit down and write about whatever comes into your head.
In most instances, writers block happens because you haven’t completed processing what you want to say. Free writing is a great way to change the focus.
Give it a try! In a surprisingly short time, you’ll find that you are in fact not blocked at all.
