Writer’s Block How Does One Get Through It?

I was sitting down at the table looking at a blank piece of paper wondering what to write down. Nothing was coming to mind. Could it be that I have writer’s block?

Writer’s Block How Does One Get Through It?

Why do we get stumped with writing?  Have we used up all the creativity in our brains?

I recently read an article by Maria Konnikova titled “How To Beat Writers Block”.

In it she states that; “Writer’s block has probably existed since the invention of writing, but the term itself was first introduced into the academic literature in the nineteen-forties, by a psychiatrist named Edmund Bergler”.    Edmund studied writers who suffered from “neurotic inhibitions of productivity,” in an attempt to determine why they were unable to create—and what, if anything, could be done about it.

Basically “neurotic inhibitions of productivity ” is a scientific name for writer’s block.

Throughout the year’s many studies have been done by psychologists to determine why and how writers become unproductive.

The Center For Writing offers suggestions to aid writers with breaking the cycle of blockage and keep the creativity flowing.

Taking Notes   —  Keep a notepad handy at all times.  Jot down ideas when they pop into your head.   Look at your list, gather the information and start creating.

Brainstorming   —    Just as you did in high school or college, begin the habit of brainstorming thoughts. Eventually, the best ideas will pop out at you, allowing the next article to be written.

Piecework – It might be easier to get started if you are jotting down the beginning, middle, and endings to an article or a book that you are wanting to write.  Once you’ve gained the confidence back, picking up where you left off becomes easy.

Tricks To Use – Start keeping a journal by your bed.  Pull it out whenever the words start coming into your head.  Just write down whatever comes to mind. Once you start reviewing it, there may be a storyline or other things you can find to write about.

When does the mood strike to write anything down? In the morning, afternoon, or evening.  What distractions are you facing?  Cell phone, TV shows, children, spouse?  Try to create some time out of your schedule to just sit down and write.

My desire is to provide valuable information to my readers.   If you find value in my blog please comment.

As Always,
