So Your Creative Juices Aren’t Flowing? Writer’s Block Tips

I have hit a bit of a slump guys so I thought I should talk about it.
I don’t know whether or not you’ve noticed but my creative juices are not flowing and it’s starting to bug me.

This is what they call writer’s block.

What is writer’s block?

Writer’s block is what you call it when a writer loses their inspiration or ability to produce new writing material. You could also call it a “creativity slowdown”.

So the creative juices have ceased to flow, huh?

I have written blog posts about blog post ideas but my problem seems to be that I can’t seem to write anything down. I have lots of ideas but lately, writing seems far from my mind.

Currently watching The Boys as a way of distracting myself from the fact that I have come up dry (in terms of blog post ideas) so I’m hoping that after my binge I’ll have some ideas to play around with hahaha…

By the way, Homelander is such an A**hole! Don’t you agree?
Back to the matter at hand…

So what’s the solution?

I have asked a few bloggers in the past in my Meet the Blogger interviews what they do to regain inspiration when they have writer’s block, maybe their advice could be handy for you too.

This is what some of them had to say:

I read. Inspiration is also usually when I struggle with something and then make it through that I want to help others who are still struggling.

Tjar-Lize Searching For Purpose

One thing I do is step back for a while. I don’t try to force a topic, etc. Once I have cleared my mind, I am ready to write. If it doesn’t, I just choose another topic in its place.

I tend to revert to my audience and ask about the kind of topics they would like to see discussed from the viewpoint of a disabled person or the kinds of questions they’d like answered. Otherwise, I’ll go for a coffee with my best friend/editor/right-hand woman when it comes to the blog, Nikki, and just discuss life with her and see if we can pull a blog post out of a previous experience that I hadn’t given much thought to previously.

I’ve also read that reading content that’s unusual for you to read can help give you that boost of creativity that you’re craving right now.

So the next time you get writer’s block, don’t dwell on it. Remember that it happens to the best of us.

Personally, I read when I feel I don’t have anything to write about and that helps me to come up with new ideas.

Keep calm, relax and take the above advice from fellow bloggers/writers. Before you know it, you’ll be back at it again banging out awesome newsworthy blog posts that your readers will be eager to share.

If you have any tips or advice for writer’s block that you’d love to share then please do so in the comments. I would love to hear from you (and I’m sure others will appreciate your input too).
