5 Ways To Overcome Writer's Block

You don't need to be a fiction writer to experience writer's block. It might be you trying to write that amazing cover letter and you can't seem to find the right words. Instead, you are thinking about the last kiss you had and how it was the Best. Kiss. Ever.

Hey guys, how are you all doing? It's Monday and I'm excited to do this again. It's safe to say that I'm working hard with regards to the writing schedule, right? I have had the best moments of my life this past week. I've been doing a lot of thinking and I'm really excited because I have been very productive.

Today, I'm going to talk less about me and more about writer's block. Writer's block is when a writer or a human being wants to write, but can't find the right words or inspiration to progress. It doesn't just affect fiction writers; you might be having issues with your CV. Like you don't know if you should add Hall Pastor at Akintola Hall on your CV. You might also be having difficulties getting the dialogue for your novel or script. Relax. Take a cup of coffee or zobo. Read.
If too much fufu has occupied the better part of your brain that you don't know what and what not to add on your CV, ask friends that are working to send you copies of their CV. Read a lot of CVs and of course, eat less eba and fufu. You should be able to identify apoorly written CV when you see one.  

If you are passionate about fiction like me and you are struggling with writer's block,  like you know Amara will remove her pant, but you want the narration to be just perfect, I think you should leave Amara and her pant alone for now. Watch more movies, read a lot of good novels and write less. I recommend writers like Chimamanda, Nora Roberts, Maeve Binchy, Karen Kingsbury, Fern Michaels and Debbie Macomber. I believe when you write less, read more and watch great movies, you'll definitely have an idea with regards to Amara and her pant. 
Rest is also very important. Don't underestimate the power of lying on your bed or on the flor and doing nothing. In that moment, you might have a nice chain of thought. Remember William Words's definition of poetry. If you don't know it, Google is your friend. 

Since we are talking about Google, you can read articles on Writer's block online. Something pretty will definitely come up. 

Attend writing workshops. Like, how do you intend to be better when you don't want to learn? There's nothing bad about mingling with other writers and learning from them. I can't overemphasise the importance of having reliable writers in my life.  When the reliable ones tell me that my content is crap, I know it is. Learn from others so you can be better. 

These steps are very easy, right? If you are dealing with writer's block, help yourself with this post. If you have more tips, I'll be more than glad. Have a fantastic and productive week ahead.
