Writer’s Block: The best advice on how to overcome it
Have you ever had writer’s block? I don’t think I have, but I was thinking about it yesterday after I didn’t post anything on the B/R Blog.
The reason for that silence was a different kind of block—the one in the pipes underneath my house. My blog-writing time was spent dealing with plumbers.
Writer’s block is just about as pleasant as a plumbing problem, and maybe harder to fix. It doesn’t even help if you can afford to call that person who can come over and reliably fix the problem. That person doesn’t exist.
But we do have each other, we writers, and we try to help each other out. So I turned to social media and asked everyone who happened to be within the sound of my typing if they ever got writer’s block, and their best piece of advice for cracking it.
I expected to get two or three responses from friends but the answers came pouring in. So I collected them into this Storify. Maybe it’ll help someone get through some dark night of the scribbler’s soul.
