This isn’t just a question, it’s a dilemma! All you writers out there – ever wondered why, despite of being gifted with an ocean of creative ideas and having perpetual waves of writing skills, you often end-up facing an unavoidable shark known to you as the Writer’s Block?
Well, it’s time to close the curtains on such mental blocks – it’s time to resume writing! BUT HOW?
You might have tried innumerable ways like making coffee or taking a nap to get through this dilemma but must have seldom achieved a favourable outcome. Look nowhere else – here are seven keys that will definitely help you open your locks and unleash your innovative thought-process once again!
1 – It’s Time to Shuffle!
Indeed. It’s time to change the time. You should consider writing during a different phase of the day, as compared to your existing time.
It might be late at night or early in the morning. You can even replace your afternoon nap-time with your writing-work. What this change does is, it helps you rejuvenate your thought-process by pushing away existing distractions.
2 – SHIFT the Fortunes!
Sounds good, right? It’ll feel even better. Try changing your writing place. It can be a cafe or by the roadside on a bench or even a different room. The point is to get rid of the distracting atmosphere and switch to a different place where you and only you are in command!
Bid adieu those blocks and grab your pens – it’s time to take charge!
3 – Change your Tunes!
What can be more relishing than being granted the desired space of mind through a quick change in your music? Not only melodies, but a change in your medium of writing too can do wonders for you.
For example, if you write on your laptop, you can switch to manual writing or you can change devices on which you write. It’s all about creating the right aura for yourself at the right moment!
4 – Serve Yourself!
Treat the long lost writer in you with your favourite chocolate cookies or the spicy chips you crave for. Or just grab a beverage and wander around with your imagination with each and every sip.
Perhaps, the way to binge-writing must begin with a dedicated binge-eating session!
5 – Talk it out!
The most underrated way to get out of Writer’s Block is to interact with people around you. This can prove to be immensely helpful.
Have a chat with a stranger or even a friend. Strike an interesting and an informal conversation. Talk about things you and others like. Just express yourself with utmost creativity and simplicity (The Perfect Blend) and you’ll surely have the free-flowing writer back at work!
6 – ENTERTAIN YOURSELF!
In search of ideas? Drop this idea. Instead go find the ultimate entertainment you need by watching movies or attending parties or having some fun at the pool. Entertainment will fill you with positivity that will further help you generate ideas to write.
You can also indulge in sporty games or undergo a decent dose of physical training at the nearest gym! Dancing, singing or listening to music too can do wonders to your clueless state of mind. The aim is to forget all the miseries and knock-off all the shackles that had trapped your mind.
7 – Set Yourself Free
The best way to do so would be to Free-write. Pour your heart out on paper with whatever you feel like writing. Yeah – that’s freestyle writing. This will let out the confusion and distracting thoughts from your mind and make way for relevant ideas to come-in.
It’s high time that you stop letting your brain get locked-up. The above ways are going to help you overcome mind blocks with a remarkable efficiency and thus bring back to life the writer in you!
