Need to beat writer’s block? I feel ya … It can seem like the hydra, ready to rear one of its seven heads when you least expect it! Supersadface.
But what if I told you that you CAN beat writer’s block and it’s easier than you think?? Try these quick tips for size …
1) Try Free Writing
Lots of writers get blocked because they’re trying to be perfect … but perfectionism is a disease! Like the infographic suggests, avoid it by trying free writing. This is when you set a timer and write anything – literally anything – during that time. Even if you can’t think of what to write, write ‘I can’t think what to write’!

2) ‘Draw The Story’
Very often writers get blocked because they only know part of their story … However, they may not want to outline in the traditional sense either. Now what??
Well, here’s what: DRAW the story instead! Use the free B2W plotting worksheet, or check out a visual representation of how your plot works instead. Alternatively, you could use post-it notes, chalk or a whiteboard. Whatever it takes to get your plot beats organised in your head, from A to B to C.
3) Remember WHY You’re Doing This
Sometimes writers get stuck because they’ve forgotten WHY they’re writing their story in the first place. Check back in with yourself … Ask yourself why you are writing this project. Is it because you have a burning message to share? Or because you’ve never seen a character like yours before? Perhaps you have a desire to connect with like-minded people over an issue? Something else??
