Writing is not always easy as it seems, especially creative writing. Often there are times when you won’t be able to get a writing rhythm or even cannot even start writing about something. This particular phase is called writing block.
Those who write have gone through this phase at least once in life. Sometimes nothing would come out of a writers head even though their pens are ready to flow through the paper. The type of block varies from writer to writer. Some cannot feel the subject, some just do not find the urge from the inside, and some just have too much going on their head.
I experienced this situation every now and then. There are times no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to write anything decent. So if anyone goes through such time they should remember that it is something very commonplace among writers.
Now the question is what to do in such situations. Should writers take a break from writing until they find their usual writing rhythm? This can be good for short term, but if the break happens for a long period then the writers might find themselves in a worse position. The thing that writers should do is try to do something in order to find the rhythm again. In other words they should employ a practice which will unblock the writer’s block.
I never had a solid technique to deal with writer’s block until I came across a book titled ” The Writer’s Block: 786 Ideas to Jump-Start Your Imagination “. This is one amazing book that I came across which helped me reduce a lot of time wasted in the writer’s block phase. One blogger suggested to me that I should have a look at this book.
At first glance, I got interested in the book. It is shaped like a 3×3×3 block and full of ideas to help the mass writer to break the writer’s block. The book is very helpful for anyone who likes to write, and takes it seriously or professionally. The writer Jason Rekulak has put a lot of effort in composing the book. He has actually compiled 786 techniques to overcome the writer’s block.
Most of the examples are taken from experiences of prominent writers. 786 ideas is not something merely small, but it’s rather something very comprehensive. I owe a lot to this book because it has helped me in many situations where I did not have much time in hand to finish writing. I would recommend this to any type of writer, whether a rookie or a pro. It is a must have book in every writer’s shelf.
