  1. Writer’s block is something that happens to me soo often!
    What I do when I’m confronted by this is
    I will shut down the book and would do some random things.. like reading my emails. Catching up on my newsletters and all.
    I never try to read books when I’m doing my work! I’m sure it wouldn’t help!
    I often engage with other people…

    By doing all of these, ideas come rushing back to my mind! And just in time!

  2. I usually try and just drift away…meditation always seems to help or just a relaxing walk, that can inspire a lot of things and open the mind.

  3. Writer’s block is pretty common with me as well.
    I’m the opposite – I read books to get inspiration and ideas! But I do try and take breaks when writer’s block hits me.
    Thank you for commenting!

  4. I always found Steven Pressfield’s books “The War of Art” and “Do the Work” extremely helpful. I write three hours or four hours a day. If other things don’t get in the way I write six days a week. I gave up worrying about writer’s block. I write, even if it’s just free flow association. After several months of this I comprehended what Steven so kindly illuminates. Do the work and allow it to manage itself. I know this isn’t for everyone, but his process works for me. A dharma friend of mine Tanya Shaffer does the Off Leash Writing Workshops and I think this too is helpful when getting stuck. She’s at tanyashaffer.com
    With love and gratitude, to all writers everywhere.
