Unsticking Writer's Block by John Seeley
Einstein said, “To continue doing the same thing expecting different results is insanity.” When writer’s block hits, it’s important to change what you’ve been doing. Take a break. Go someplace. Talk to someone. Do something fun. Put a time limit on how long a break you’ll take. That way you can be “guilt free” for the whole time. If you haven’t had a specific discipline for your writing, then try setting specific goals of time or output. Set them something easily reachable, but should be enough to feel accomplishment, even if it’s only one page.
After writing four chapters in my first book, I hit a wall. I decided to take a trip to England for a couple of weeks. The change of pace and scenery did me a world of good. I came back completely refreshed. I also joined a support group to have someplace to hold me accountable to finish my writing. In a few months I completed the first draft.
