Hey there, Writers!
Popping in with a mini-post on WRITER’S BLOCK for y’all! This is one of my lessons from my FREE writing course How to Fill Your Creative Well. I’m sharing with you because it’s valuable advice for any writer at any part of the journey that they can use anytime!

Writer’s block happens when your creative well is not full enough of ideas, creative energy, or inspiration.
The worst response a writer can have is to worry about this obstacle. Don’t fret over what to write next, or how to write what you want to write, or start thinking you’re a terrible writer.
Instead, try one of these two tricks:
1. Spend your day learning something new.
2. Spend your day enjoying an old favorite pastime.
If you choose # 1, learning something new, you are filling your creative well with adventure and discovery, you’re solving a mystery, answering a question, crafting a new character or setting or conflict.
If you opt for # 2, enjoying an old favorite pastime, then you are filling your creative well with comfort + familiarity. You are connecting to your conscience, your heart, and your soul. You are taking time away from the pressures of performing and reminding yourself of those things in your life that genuinely move and enchant you. Going back to your roots, where the love of writing first took seed.
