Writer’s Block

Hello everyone!

Recently, I have been under a lot of stress and feeling unmotivated to write and/or uninspired.  Check out these four articles for useful tips on how to overcome writer’s block.

I especially like the first article because it includes activities that do not help to overcome writer’s block.  I will confess, TV is my Achilles heel.

3. “7 Ways to Overcome Writer’s Block” by Chuck Sambuchino: http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/guide-to-literary-agents/7-ways-to-overcome-writers-block

*Although Mr. Sambuchino’s seventh approach does seem, to use his own words, “out there,” I really like his first six methods.  Personally, when it comes to a plot issue, my number one go-to for overcoming writer’s block is to talk it through with my brother Gregory.  Just hearing myself say the plot out loud can cause me to identify the problem and come up with a possible solution.  When that is not enough to overcome the block, Gregory suggests some ways I can add more conflict and/or resolve the issue.
