How I got over my Writer’s Block!! (For Writing, Book, Journal Bloggers & More)

First Published on Millionaires Digest!!


I am new to the blogging world…only few months of experience, still from past few weeks I simply cannot make myself to write anything. Everyday I would open up my laptop and would look at the screen and come up blank!!!

How did I recover from writers block..!!

I Read…and then read some more…!!

I finished 4 books in 3 days, still I could not write their reviews. It was not that I did not like the books, I loved them, but when I started writing it was just not coming out right.

Watched something crazy things on TV..!!

I went to the channels and programs I would usually pass..!! I thought it might give me some ideas and it did…the stupid box gave me some stupid ideas, nothing that was making me excited still I wrote them down…maybe in future.

I Read articles on social media!!

I read a dozen different articles on Facebook and other social media and it only made me think they have written about almost everything. Still I read them and commented on them, got engaged in some great conversations and had some interesting discussions.

I Read on latest events and listened to the news!!

That helped me into getting a good view about what all is happening in the world. It was basically sad and depressing learning about bombing and terrorism, I could have written about that but I think I could not add anything new to what has already been said about it. Then all that politics which has never interested me one bit.

I kept a lookout for Daily prompts and posts by WordPress!!

They also helped but most of the topics I started writing were not completed.

Most importantly I kept my Patience!!

I did not lose heart or worried that I am unable to write. I told myself – That happens!! Find a way to get over it than get frustrated.

Then I turned to something which has always been helpful my Family and friends!!

It had been quite sometime since I had a talk with my crazy friends, so instead of staring on a screen, I decided to call them up and meet a few friends. 10 minutes talking to them and telling them about my writer’s block they gave me so many ideas, so completely crazy with no logic at all. Still I decided to write all those topics for my future.

When today I sat down on my laptop and looked over those topics, I decided what better way to get over my writer’s block than Well, to write this post..!!

So, find what makes you click out of the above. Maybe something completely different from this list, something that makes that bulb light..!!
