NaBloPoMo would like to know if I’ve ever had extended writer’s block, what I did about it and if I have any tips.
I get writer’s block all the time. I have a dozen posts in my head, but I just can’t seem to get them into writing. My idea list is a mile long, but as you can see (with the exception of this challenge), I don’t post much.
It sometimes has to do with the fact that I’m still deciding which direction I want to take my blog in. There are so many subjects to write about. It’s kind of hard picking just one or a few.
The other thing is time. With all my other responsibilities, there just isn’t as much time in my day as there used to be.
My biggest setback is my personal life. There is a lot going on, but the majority of it can’t really be put on here. There are certain things I am not ready to share.
In order to clear writer’s block, I know I need to step away from the task at hand. I buy a notebook and write something. Anything. Maybe a funny or inspirational quote. Jot down a joke or a funny story from the past. Write about something I’ve shared already. It’s amazing what a little new perspective can do.
How do you beat writer’s block?
