The condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.
That is what I could find on the internet to try to define this dilemma of not being to put anything on paper, I questioned this writer’s block theory on one occasion because I found it hard to believe that someone can have nothing to write about let alone be able to express themselves in paper… I must tell you I spoke to soon, I’ve experienced not more than one occasions where my ability to write anything just disappeared, to where; I don’t have a clue. When I face that syndrome, that’s what I call it (giggles) I simply close my laptop get up and take a walk… Sometimes I noticed too many ideas flock up my mind causing me to be confused on what I really want to write about. So taking a break from everything and breathing in new fresh air kind of creates new imaginations for me.
Yes i said, when you write, You mostly use your imagination; creating a whole new world of adventure in your mind and sometimes it actually moves you from your comfort zone. That is splendid writing. I too would like to reach that pinnacle point in my life.
So the real question is how does one overcome this writer’s block, let us read on what professionals say:
Writing whatever comes to mind
1. Accept that you have writer’s block
When you have writer’s block, no ideas spring to mind when you are writing and you are stuck for what to write. Understand that writer’s block is easy to overcome, and there are many ways to get over it. Do not stop to the idea that you will never write again.
2. Write about anything
Anything in the world – even write about pineapples. It gets your brain to think more and be creative. This works the best for many people. Once you’ve thought of a paragraph or a few sentences about your topic go back to your story.
3. Get some ideas on paper without worrying about how they sound
The writing does not have to be polished; writers often have writer’s block because they worry about the quality of their writing. Remember that nobody has to see a word you’ve written except you. You can show it to the world when you’re ready.
4. Try a change of pace
For example, if you have a long, action-packed sequence, try going over to a reasoned conversation. Be sure that the changeover makes sense. You don’t have to write in one speed or one tone all the time. Something completely different can really end up inspiring you to reach new depths. If you tend to write dramatic scenes, switch to something a bit more lighthearted, or vice versa.
5. Decide when to give up on an idea
Look over what you have written and ask yourself, “Does this seem to be leading up to anything?” If you feel like it’s going absolutely nowhere, then it may be time to move on from it.
That’s all I could come with on this read, I hope it will be a learning curve for many, writer’s block is no childs play the sooner you deal with it the sooner life can continue being creative again…
