It can happen when you have no ideas, your mind a buzzing blank screen. It can happen when you have all of the ideas, but they filter through, none of them sticking or developing. I’m dealing with the latter. So, what do you do?
Step one: admit you have writers block. No one wants to get stuck in the denial stage.
Step two: move around. Getting the blood flowing can work wonders.
Step three: just start writing. It doesn’t matter if it’s garbage as long as there are words on the page. Thinking about writing right now is the equivalent to hitting your head against the wall. The most important thing is to move through the block. Sure, you’ll have to go back and rewrite that entire section, but the only way to move forward is to actually move.
And now that I’ve written something, maybe the beast has been tamed. Fingers crossed.
