Regardless of whether you are a writer, copywriter, blogger or just author of any texts – everyone sometimes gets blocked. The deadline is chasing, the clock is ticking, the client or the boss is waiting and only you can do is stare at an empty document and wait for the words to appear magically themselves. However, there are a few things you can do to gain inspiration and deal with the writer’s block: 1. Remove any distractions Put down the phone, turn off all unnecessary browser cards, stop checking Facebook. Clean up on your desk. Nothing should distract you. 2. Change the environment Go for a walk or start working in another room. Changing conditions allows awakening creativity and change the perspective. 3. Start writing everything Take a piece of paper and a pen and start writing down all the thoughts in turn for 15 minutes. You will see how quickly seemingly confused thoughts turn into meaningful concepts and ideas. 4. Talk to someone It doesn’t matter if it’s a co-worker, a colleague, a family member or a lady in a store. Another perspective of the topic you are constantly thinking about allows you to release new layers of creativity. 5. Reset your mind Yes, we know – deadline is coming. But really putting off the job for 15 minutes will not hurt anyone. Go out with the dog. Cook dinner. Watch a video. Do something that totally resets your mind. Remember: do not think about writing! 6. Read several other texts on a similar topic It will allow you to look at the case from the perspective of another writer and return to the right track. Try any of these methods or try all of them. The words and creativity will appear themselves.
