Overall, when writer’s block strikes, I have one rule. Don’t stop writing. Even if it doesn’t make sense, or isn’t on your normal beat, or just seems dumb to you – don’t stop. Eventually an idea will come out of nowhere, but here are some ways to beat writer’s block:
- Compile a list of ideas
When you’re not blocked, make a list of ideas that will spark something when you are suffering from writer’s block.
2. Just make a list
Write a post like “5 Ways To Beat Writer’s Block” or “10 Relatable Things For People Who Love To Nap.” Sure, they’re cliché, but they keep you from missing weeks of blogging.
Write down your feelings or day to day activities or current thoughts often. Your brain might just be clogged up with daily life problems.
4. Read other blogs
It’s okay to draw inspiration from other bloggers, they probably do the same thing while reading your blog!
5. Listen to music
Music can bring up emotions you’ve tried to squash in the past, get your nostalgia on.
Comment below if you have other ways to beat writer’s block! Bloggers that are blocked (including me right now) can use all the help they can get.
