Writer’s Block: My top tips on how to solve writer’s block

Writer's Block

Getting writer’s block is probably one of the most frustrating things about being a writer. Not only can you not think clearly, but it seems like nothing makes sense anymore. As a writer, I can completely understand when it comes to this topic. Depending on how long the block last, it can go on for hours or even days. Which for me is no good if I have something to do or I am in a time crunch.


So below are my top 3 tips to get over writer’s block. These tips have helped me out so much that I do not know what I would do without them. So if any of you all found these tips helpful or relatable, be sure to comment below in the comment section. See you guys in my next post!

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.

Great tips! I will be using them!!!

Refining the Status Quo

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

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.
