As a creator, do you find yourself struggling with writers block or getting stuck while trying to write content for your audience?
Writers block is one of the nightmares of many content writers, bloggers and creatives alike. Indeed writer’s block sucks.
But you know what’s worse? It’s the number of writers wallowing in creative block for too long, waiting for an inspiration that never ever comes some times.
So, if I may ask, do you ever come across creative block? How, do you deal with it?
As someone that’s had to deal with writer’s block for more than half a decade, I’ll be sharing with you some of the strategies that’s worked for me and most of my students below…
Find out the Culprit
You feel you’re stuck with writer’s block? The first step to get yourself out is to figure out the trigger of the sudden lack of inspiration to write.
Is it because you do not have any idea or topic in your writing schedule at the moment? This is one of the biggest trigger for most creative people aside from burn out.
The moment you figure out the cause of the writer’s block, it becomes easier to think up ways to fix it.
Revisit your Writing Goal
What did you want to achieve during the period you experienced the writer’s block?
This is a very good question you can ask yourself in order to unravel answers into areas you can write about.
Let’s say your goal within a certain period is to create content on topics that will generate more clients for your business. Knowing this streamlines your topics.
With this in mind, instead of writing about just any topics, you can then decide to target topics that will deliver this specific goal.
Get a Content Calendar
Creating a content calendar is one of the best ways to deal with writer’s block. You know why? It gives you a list of pre-selected topics to write about.
With content calendar you have your content ideas fixed before you need them.
Try out Idea Generator
For most writers, writer’s block starts when they suddenly realize they don’t even have a topic to write about.
If you’re experiencing this kind of blank out, instead of sitting and waiting for content ideas to drop on your laps, get up and use your existing goals to create content ideas.
There are a handful of content idea generators like Hubspot, BuzzSummo, Ubersuggest, answer the public.
Using these apps can fetch you some ideas to break the ice and start your writing.
One of the easiest ways to get out of writer’s block is to try out free-writing. I do this quite often.
As a creative, even with your content calendar, there may be times you don’t just know how to get started on a particular topic. Instead of getting yourself beat up, begin to free-write.
Get yourself over to your laptop. Allow yourself to write as it comes. Keep writing and let it flow.
Do not bother to delete anything. As you continue to write, you’ll realize that it begins to get easier and the ideas begin to come together in a flow.
Read up other blogs
One of the major triggers of writer’s block is the lack of inspiration to write. Sometimes as creators, we just need one idea, one push or just about one familiar pattern to trigger our whole creative faculty.
And this trigger might be right there on that your competitor’s blog. Instead of waiting for when the inspiration will come to you, go out and bring it in.
Use Google to make searches relating to themes you’d want to write about. Read through the results that show up and find out what it says.
The idea is not to copy up the content from other people’s blog. The idea is that at some point during the reading, you might find some inspiration or a whole new angle to start your own content.
Try Content Curation
If you find it difficult to deal with writer’s block, using content Curation is a good strategy to fix yourself and get back into writing.
The good thing about content Curation is that not only does it present you with content, it gets you to present some of the best value to your audience, while promoting the writer of that content and building a relationship with them in the process.
Done well, content Curation can give you a lot of benefits.
Go on a Break
Sometimes your lack of inspiration could be your body telling you that you need to take a break and get powered up again.
If that's the case, get on a break.
Sometimes, your most significant content might just come out of a period like this, where you refuse to force your mind to get creative but allow it to reboot on its own.
As you can see, writer’s block is real. And its effects are not limited to writers but creators as a whole.
But regardless, there are ways to harness writer’s block to become a great writer or build better relationship with other writers and content creators.
These are some of the things you’ve learned through this post and I hope you’ll use these strategies to fix your writing and free yourself from writer’s block forever.
