I’ve read a ton of advice books over the years. In fact I still do on occasion. In this business, I don’t think you can ever stop learning. Knowledge is power.
Today I’m talking about writer’s block. You know when your muse decides to take a vacation. You can sit for hours staring at a blank page, or solitaire becomes your best friend. That masterpiece you wanted to create is put on hold because, well frankly your muse doesn’t give a sh*t.
One thing almost every book suggests is to free write. Pull out a journal and write. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you. Heck, it doesn’t even have to make sense to you. You can write a grocery list, a to-do list, or just how you’re feeling in that moment.
Write a good-bye letter to your muse if it helps. Just write, write, write until it charges your muse again.
Basically, let ‘er rip.
