Writer’s Frustration: How to get over writer’s block

Writer’s Frustration: How to get over writer’s block

So as a writer, one of the biggest frustrations that i deal with is writer’s blog. Depending on what kind of material that i am writing, the block can last hours or even up to a few days which can definitely slow down the process. Yet throughout my writing career, i have managed to come up with a few tips and tricks of my own to help me work more efficiently. Hopefully my tips can help some of you guys out their and have a great day everyone.

Tip 1 : Don’t Procrastinate

Waiting until the last minute to do an assignment is never a good idea.  You may get frustrated with your work and decide to just write anything in order to speed up the process.  As a former procrastinator myself, i know all too and well the consequences of waiting until the last minute to do anything.  I think that it is very important to give yourself ample time to do research and come up with some concise thoughts.  Rushing through things can sometimes result in a sloppy outcome.

Tip 2: Don’t Overthink Things 

A lot times, overthinking things can make it seem harder or more difficult than what it really is.  The thing is you have to relax or do something to get your mind off of it.  If you don’t, then it is  going to seem like you have been working on the same thing forever.  Remember that too much is not always better because you never know when you will get inspired.

Tip 3: Walk Away 

Sometimes walking away to clear your head can be the best thing for you.  For example:  exercising, watching tv, reading a book, or hanging out with friends will definitely help.  I know for some it may be hard to walk away, but at the end of the day you have to remember that things take time.  You need to allow your brain to rest so you can come up with some new thoughts.  Whether it may take you days or hours to overcome it, remember that patience is key.

I’ll add to your list. Work for 90min. Inspiration hits (so it’s said) every 90min. So when you work, last for at least 90min and you’ll find your groove.

Great advice – I have spent 10 years writing and editing my memoirs from Cairo, I am ready to self-publish on Kindle so keep your finger crossed that I follow through. Your blog is awesome.

These are excellent tips! I especially love the first and last ones. Once I actually get on my laptop and get started, things just seem to flow most times. But I definitely need to learn how to walk away! We get so caught up in finishing once we’ve started we sometimes sacrifice quality. I need to keep this in mind these days lol

Overthinking things is always my downfall. When I finally chill tf out…the words flow from my fingers to my keyboard and I’m left wondering why I was so stressed out anyway?!

Walking away works best for me, but sometimes I come back and I still have writer’s block. Then, because I don’t know what to write, I procrastinate. How do you balance the need for taking breaks with the need to actually complete the assignment?

Relaxing has helped me a bunch. Sometimes I worry so much about how I am crafting my posts, but when I decide to just write freely they always come out better.
