Getting Over Writer’s Block

There are two words that can send a shiver down any writer’s spine- and those two words are writer’s block. Every writer has to deal with these some time or the other. It takes a huge emotional toll on the writer, who relies on their writing for emotional and psychological release.

If you are trying to overcome your writer’s block, you have to keep certain things in mine. First of all, you are brave for trying to get over the writer’s block in the first place. Second of all, this happens to almost every writer at some point of time or the other. It will pass- this is not something permanent. You should also keep in mind that there is a chance none of the normal tips for overcoming writer’s block will work on you. This is a condition that is extremely varied and personal, so don’t feel too let down.

How to overcome writer's block

You should not stop writing just because you are facing a writer’s block. Sit down and write something- anything- for at least 15 or 20 minutes. It does not have to make sense, it does not even have to be grammatically correct. If you see something that has inspired you, or something that has made you feel happy, write about it. You will slowly regain your ideas and you will be able to start writing.
