Around the Writer’s Block

Originally, I intended to write my next nonfiction book on productivity. And I still plan on writing that book, but my interest has shifted to something else for now. I’d like to write about writer’s block, how I handle it, and ways for others to get through it. Because I’m going to be blunt, I don’t believe in writer’s block. 

Now, I understand there’s burn out. And going through spells lacking creativity. And if you don’t give yourself time to write, then you won’t write. But I strongly believe if you make time to write, and put yourself in front of a blank page, you can make words come. Even if they’re not the best or if they’re not for the project you thought you’d be working on (haha, kind of like me now) some words on the page are better than nothing. 

When someone says they have writer’s block because they don’t know what to write next, I feel like that’s a cop out. Or if they say they don’t have any ideas for a new project, I don’t feel sorry for them there either. There are so many ways out there to help through both problems, it all comes down to whether or not they’re willing to put in the work. 

So, over the next few months, I’ll be expanding on my ideas here and I’ll give some tips as I put together my next nonfiction project. I hope you’ll get something out of it.
