As noted in the introductory blog, “5 Reasons Behind Writer’s Block,” there are several reasons why writers are often prevented from writing. The six primary reasons include:
- Lack of Time to Write
- Lack of Creativity
- Home Responsibilities
The first step to overcoming Writer’s Block comes from the need to discover why the writer is blocked in the first place. Once you have establish the why you can work on how to move forward.
Work = Journal
Hey there Workaholics! (You know who you are). Are you finding it difficult to write when you are working over 60 hours a week? Of course you are! Because working that much is insane. However, if you are unwilling to lower the hours you work, I think I still might have a handy tip for you.
- Keep a Journal. This does not have to be some fancy thing with multi-colored pens (although those are fun too). It can be as simple as a five inch spiral notebook and a number 2 pencil.
- By keeping a small journal on you (in your pocket, in your purse, in your laptop bag, whatever, as long as it’s within reach) you can immediately use it when inspiration strikes.
- Maybe you won’t have a lot of time (see post on lack of time), but with a journal, you can catch a minute here and a minute there to jot down your ideas before they slip away.
Eventually, you will need to also address the lack of time issue (but that is another post that you can check out here). Working is important, supporting yourself is crucial, but don’t let your work strangle your creativity. Find ways to circumvent your circumstances.
Happy Writing Everyone!
