What To Do When You Have Writer's Block

Writer's Block - the one thing dreaded by any author. It is the moment when all the creative juices stop flowing, and life itself seems to grind to a halt. Never fear! Writer's block happens to all authors, even the great ones, and while there isn't a magic pill to cure it, there are some things you could try to get the creative juices flowing again.

Here are just a few ideas:

Take a Walk. Sometimes, the best way to get your mind in creative mode is to get your mind off things. Take a walk around the neighborhood, exercise, get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Who knows what great ideas will pop into your head.

Read a book. There's nothing better to get the words flowing again than to read the words of someone else. Often, those words provide just the inspiration you need to write that next paragraph or chapter.

Take a mental break. Sometimes, we can write too much. Forcing the words doesn't necessarily equate to breaking the block. This can, at times, be counterproductive. Take an hour, a day, a week and let your mind relax and refresh, then you can come back with a new perspective and be ready to continue.

At some point in time, we will all experience writer's block. The secret is to find a way to remove it. Let me know what works for you.
