Writer’s Block – An Instant Cure!

October 12th, 2015

writer's-block,blogThe idea of ‘Writer’s block’ sits hunched, but menacing at the back of many authors’ minds. ‘I might not have it now, but what if it strikes in the future?’ I hear you cry.

We give good advice about overcoming writer’s block in the course but I think that what the following YouTube clip tells you is both concise and effective – it really makes sense.

The first, and most important, point it makes is: Give yourself permission to write garbage! I know, it doesn’t sound very promising, does it? But stick with it and you’ll see where the speaker is coming from. The other two steps are equally important, though: (1) Have confidence in yourself and (2) Silence your inner critic (at least until you’ve got over the block).

I meet so many students that simply don’t have confidence in their ability to write something that other will enjoy reading. (In fact, I was speaking to one on the phone just a few minutes ago – she was actually considering giving up on her course because she was worried about letting anyone else see what she had produced.) And because of this they’re nervous about putting pen to paper. Result? Writer’s block.

If you think that might be you, then watch the following clip and act on it!
