The Writer’s Bane

Ever get that feeling? You really, really want to write something, whether it’s on a blog, or a story, or an assignment for school, and you look at the empty page, or the blank screen, and…

Nothing.

All those ideas that swirl in your head seem to run dry.

Writer’s block is the bane of all writer’s existence. It comes and goes. I, personally, am suffering from it’s effects. I really want to write more, I really want to get the words out, but they just aren’t there.

It’s annoying. Discouraging, even. So, what should we do to conquer it?

Write. Ha, yeah, it seems like an obvious answer, but really! Close your eyes for a minute, clear your brain of all random unrelated thoughts, and think about what you want to accomplish. Then, start typing, or scratching that pen against paper. It’s okay if it’s rough, just get the words out.

Also, talking your ideas out with a trusted friend can help a lot. Someone who can give you input, and help you organize the ideas you have. Voicing your ideas can make them come alive, and help them to flourish.

Best of luck to you! Leave a comment and let me know how it goes!
