This crazy “writer’s block” idea is spreading like a plague and it’s time that the myth is finally dispelled.
The reason why I have never believed in writer’s block is because I have known the solution to this supposed problem all along.
If I am ever at a loss for words I run. Literally I run, with my legs. I run until I know exactly what to write about.
I encourage you to test my theory. Go for a nice long run. A jog is fine, find a nice steady zenlike pace that works for you.
Push your boundaries, push your limit. One of the things I love about running is how it never fails to test me. More than writing ever could.
Make your body happy with exercise and your mind will reward you with plenty of things to write about.
It works every time.
After your run sit down and try to write. I guarantee the words will pour out of you like hot morning coffee into your favorite mug.
What is your strategy for fighting writer’s block?
