Writer’s Block – Fact or Myth?

I realize the existence of writer’s block is controversial. Writers who’ve never experienced the phenomenon believe it’s as much a myth as the Loch ness monster or Bigfoot. Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s real – at least for this old Southern gal.

Thank God, Rachel Harclerode agrees and in her guest post at Live, Write, Thrive, offers us, 9 Ways to Overcome Writer’s Block.

I’ve tried a few of her suggestions, but I think numbers 3, 5, 6, and 9 speak to me. To find out more, hop on over to C.S. Lakin’s  Live, Write, Thrive  and check out all nine of Rachel’s suggestions.

  1. I looked at her 9 points. I usually step away for a while, and also read works of other authors in my genre (which there aren’t a lot of). Sometimes, I start on a new story, but when that happens I find it hard to go back to the one where I ground to a halt. I have quite a few half-written stories in the vault.

  2. Writer’s block sucks but I think its as important in the process of writing something as is ACTUALLY WRITING! Everytime that I battle writer’s block, I ALWAYS come up with more and better ideas. Perfect solutions. New perspectives. Which is why I embrace the glitch that writer’s block creates in the creative process. It reminds me to step back, chill and come back later with bigger and better words 😀

  3. When my brain goes on vacation, I get up and walk away from my computer. I’ll do some kind of chore, or maybe just make a cup of tea, sit down with a good book, do a grocery run. I find that I’m ready to go again once I’ve gotten the break I need. Never had writer’s block that lasts for a long time.
