Writer’s block is a fearsome condition that inflicts angst upon every writer. The term itself sounds dreadful and feels agonizing. In truth, though, writer’s block is a myth and is simply a lack of creativity.
What’s a writer supposed to do to alleviate this terrible condition?
- Bang their head against a wall, rattling their marbles just enough to shake up some creativity
- Figuratively clear out the mental cobwebs, allowing creativity to crawl in
- Hope creativity will be absorbed into their brain like some delusional form of osmosis
No. The antidote for this is easily digestible in two easy steps:
- Come to terms with the fact that writer’s block doesn’t exist.
- Watch this video. It will reveal the one thing a writer needs to do to start writing again.
