If you are a writer and looking for some Monday motivation, you may find it here.
Writing seems to come natural to most writers I know however we all have those moments when we are just at a loss for words. “Writer’s block” or whatever you want to call it, it is simply those days when we feel blank and we stare at the page or screen, and we see blank.
Don’t give up just yet.
Even the greatest writers have suffered from writer’s block. Some for a short while, some for an extended period of time.
When I sit down to write, whether it’s on a book or my blog or some other piece of work, there have been times when the words were not there and outside of my grasp. My solution, as a blogger, is to share photos instead of writing text. I love taking pictures and creativity is very important to me. Sharing a photograph helps get me through the writer’s lull; and in exchange, I get to share a nice photo with the readers. A picture’s worth a thousand words, right?
Other times, as an author, when I’m working on a book and I get stuck, I take a break, maybe even take a walk. Switching to another project can help, too, then returning to the original project with renewed enthusiasm is ideal.
Reading is another way that helps with writer’s block. Take some time away from the project that’s got you stumped and read for a while. Most likely this will create renewed inspiration and ideas.
Lastly, when experiencing a period of time when inspiration is down and stress may be rising over lack of words or ideas, remember why you wanted to write in the first place. Try to capture that motivation which caused you to want to become a writer initially. Let that be your inspiration to continue and allow the words and ideas to begin to flow.
Whether you write books, blogs, speeches, presentations, and more, you may find yourself getting to the point where the words just aren’t there and inspiration has waned. You are not alone. There are ways to cope with this and renew your inspiration. Take it one step at a time and remember why you wanted to be a writer in the first place. Seek inspiration. Get motivated.
Then, write on! 🙂
