Fast Cure for Writers’ Block – And you Won’t Believe How Easy It Is

By Ruth Barringham

It’s one thing to want to write and earn money (and isn’t that what we all want?), but it can be another thing if you don’t know what to do.

And even if you do know what to do, it’s impossible to write if you’ve got writers’ block.

Personally, I don’t believe in writers’ block. I do know that it can sometimes feel like it if you feel a bit stuck and don’t know what to write, but it’s not a ‘block’ because it’s quick and easy to get going again.

And I’m going to show you 3 ways to start writing and have an abundance of ideas so that you’ll never feel stuck again.

1. The most important thing about being a writer is that you must want to write. Now I know that sound ultra-simple, but I’ve come across so many people who say they want to write, but they just don’t enjoy doing it. What they really want is the ideal of being a writer, not the actual work itself.

If you want to write, you need to be excited and motivated to do it, because it’s not easy. If 2020 taught us anything it’s that working from home isn’t easy with no boss, no set hours, and too many distractions. This is why you need to be motivated to write, but that won’t happen until you actually sit down and start writing.

2. You need more writing ideas, but just like motivation, it won’t happen until you start writing. But writing what?

How can you write when you don’t know what to write about?

Write anything, even if it’s a piece of writing about how you can’t think of anything to write about. Or journal about how crappy it is to not have any writing ideas. Or start a list of subjects that you’re interested in, or a story you want to write about, then google a few questions about it and write down the answers.

Do anything that starts you writing and the ideas will start coming.

3. When you do start writing, write quickly. Getting stuck into writing an addictive story or an interesting article (or even a series of articles) will help you to keep coming up with even more ideas, because you won’t have time to stop and think about anything else.

Fast writers never have writers’ block. They just keep writing.

So if you think that you’ve got writers’ block, simply ignore it and sit down and start writing.

And if you’re anything like me, the ideas will soon be flowing and before you know it, it’s not writers’ block that you need to worry about, but idea overload.

And That’s never a bad thing.
