If you are trying to finish a book, writer’s block is surely an obstacle you might have to overcome. When your deadline is fast approaching, you can’t afford to have writer’s block. But, every writer experiences it. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t write anything. It seems like there is nothing in your brain at all.
When writer’s block strikes, here are a couple of tricks you can do to get your creative writing juices flowing again:
1 – Get rid of distractions.
Distractions will only put your mind in a confused state. If there are distractions around, your focus won’t be on what you are writing. Instead, your focus will be on the current tv shows or what your friends are talking about. So, you might want to get rid of all the distractions while you are writing. You can try the following:
- Turn off your phone if you are not expecting an important call or message.
- If it will affect your work, such as researching certain info, do not connect the device you are writing on to the Internet.
- Set a time frame or schedule as to when you will write and abide by it consistently. For instance, you can set two hours in the morning every day to write.
