What is a writer’s block?
Writer’s block is that dreadful feeling that writers get when it seems the words have stopped flowing. This is a passing phase and will pass over, for you too.
Tricks to use to get rid of the writer’s block:
• Forget about writing for a while, focus your attention on your other hobbies or work.
• Pack up your writing, go for a walk – fresh air helps clear your head.
• Spend time chatting and socializing with friends and family.
• Read interesting books, magazines
• In short take your mind away from writing and immerse yourself in something you enjoy.
• Relax and don’t obsess about how good the manuscript is going to be. Sometimes it’s the immense expectation or worries over your manuscript that leads to a writer’s block.
Let the words flow.
