Hey neighbors! Have you ever sat down at your desk happy and prepared to write, just to discover that you can’t think of anything to write down? According to Merriam Webster’s learners dictionary, writer’s block is defined as the following:
Simple Definition of writer’s block
: the problem of not being able to think of something to write about or not being able to finish writing a story, poem, etc.
The experience can drive you outright mad! I personally start to question my writing abilities altogether. But don’t let that monster called writer’s block win! Did you know that simply waiting another time to write can help you tremendously? There are numerous reasons why you could be experiencing writer’s block at the time. Some of the reasons could be the following:
- You could be too tired or sleepy.
- Your head is flooded with thoughts from your day.
- Your dealing with personal issues.
- You’re writing about something you’re not passionate about.
- You know nothing on the subject.
- You’re under a lot of stress.
If you are feeling like any of these things, the best thing you can do is back away and give yourself time to deal with your underlying issues. Why? Because your brain doesn’t work as well under pressure. If your creative juices aren’t flowing at the moment, you’re only going to write material that’s not your best! And to have a successful blog, you have to give out your best! Now some of you could be asking, “what am I supposed to do with my blog while I’m resolving my issues. I can’t just leave my blog inactive! What if my readers start to forget about me😰😳!” I understand your fear. And that’s why I’m offering you a solution. Remember when I told you guys to not submit too many post? If not, read my post on the seven steps to a successful blog. I’ll leave the link below. So here is where the hack comes in! Instead of publishing 7 or 8 post at once, save adleast 4 or 5 of them for a rainy day, then publish the rest! Post that are random and don’t have information that needs a follow up, can be put away for the time you are dealing with writer’s block. For example, you have 6 poems that you want read. But instead of publishing all 6, publish 3 and then save the remaining 3 to be published later when you are experiencing writer’s block. It’s a win for everybody. You just accomplished 5 things:
- You have material to submit in times of writer’s block.
- You’re not overwhelming your readers.
- You won’t get even more stressed out because you’re worried about missing days.
- Your readers won’t notice the diffrence.
- You’re not putting yourself under unnecessary pressure.
My points are the following:
- You should never force yourself to write.
- Give yourself time to deal with the underlying issues.
- Save post for a rainy day.
- Everyone benefits.
