Today’s top 10 list is all about beating writer’s block. This list is just some of the ways that a person can beat writers block. Whether you are a poet, an author or even an aspiring writer, we all hit writers’ block at times. These are some of the ways that we can beat it.

  1. Set a daily writing time!
  2. Read other writers you love.
  3. Read book on writing.
  4. Take 10 minutes to write – even just momentary thoughts.
  5. Set concrete goals and reward yourself when you reach them.
  6. Write poorly. Give yourself permission!
  7. Mix it up or skip sections. Skip the part you’re stuck on till later.
  8. Use thought bubbles to expand your idea.
  9. Change your writing location. Fresh space, fresh thoughts!
  10. Plan writing dates. Get together with a writing buddy to just write.

Some of these ideas have worked for me and I wanted to share. I find the biggest one so far has been to write every day. If I take a day or two off then the writers block is more likely to happen as I am no longer in the writers frame of mind.

Hope these ideas help you combat writers block when you get it.
