Writers get writers block, but engineers never seem to get engineers block. Why? Because one is an art form and the other is a process that can be taught and replicated (though with extensive education). So if you are a writer, what are some success factors that could help play a role in you overcoming writers block?
First, change your scenery. Do you work all day in a home office? Go to a coffee or tea shop. If you work normally in a coffee shop, try working in a library. Get outdoors if it is nice outside, swim if possible, hike or at the very least, lay out in the sun. If none of these options are readily available stare out a window for a while, or watch videos of exotic locations.
Start reading more. Never under estimate the benefit of reading a good book. Fiction, self help or biz related, does not matter. Reading will open your mind and help you sharpen your life skills to and see the big picture. You’ll get great ideas and be inspired to possibly try dramatically different paths than you’ve currently been taking.
Lastly get off the computer. I saved this for last in case you decide to take me at my word. Nothing helps getting you through your writers block more so than turning off the computer, TV or radio and just being quiet for a little while. Shut down everything electronic and take out a pen and paper. For the rest of the day let those be your main tools. When your mind isn’t focusing on 100 different things at once it will start expressing it’s creative focus in amazing ways and the pen & paper is there to jot it all down.
To conclude, once you unplug from the world around you, it will free up your mind to be totally creative with no distractions. Breakthroughs and extraordinary concepts will pour out and you will have overcome your writers block.
