5 Tips to overcome the bloggers/writing block - no more writer's block! 

That dreaded feeling when you sit down, get everything ready to write a new blog post but nothing happens- guess it had to happen one day, right? The last few weeks I felt a bit demotivated and couldn't quite put my finger on it. Where has that creative spark gone? The one that usually doesn't let me sleep at night because my brain won't stop coming up with new blog post ideas? I expected it to happen at some point, considering that for the last few months I published two blog posts a week. But once it did happen I felt so useless, a full-time blogger who couldn't blog? The pressure of regularly producing entertaining blog posts had gotten to me - I was getting worried which lead to me not focusing. Funny enough, it took me a week just to write this.

But to tackle this issue I have come up with 5 Tips that helped me to overcome the writer's/bloggers block issue; read them below.

5 Tips and Tricks to overcome the bloggers/writing block. 


For me, the main issue was to recognise that I had put myself under a lot of pressure; the pressure of delivering high-quality content every week. Once the cause is clear you can work on a solution.


1. Step away and take a break
I was sitting on my laptop trying to write a post for good 3 hours. In that time I wrote one sentence, ONE SENTENCE only. There was clearly no point in continuing this disaster blog post, so I instead turned my mac off, got my camera and took some photos. Tackling my writer's block with another creative task was my way of overcoming it. I have always been a very creative person, it's my way of letting off steam. So when I felt a little bit overwhelmed with my regular blogging I decided to take a 7-day break and just took photos. I went out to just be creative without the pressure of having to deliver content. My problem was to remember why I started this again, which was for my personal reason and not just to deliver blog posts.

If you are feeling the same way as me, just take some time off. I know it's hard to do when blogging is your job, but at the end of the day don't you rather have high-quality content instead of some half decent stuff?


2. Eliminate distractions
I get so easily distracted, especially when I work by myself. I'm one of those people who work best when surrounded by people. However, that is not always going to be possible so I instead turn off my phone and use my iPad to stream Tv shows. I always need a sound playing in the background when I work alone to keep me going, whether it's Uni work or a blog post.

Whatever your distractions are, eliminate them and find something that helps you work. In my case it's TV. I actually always do the opposite language of what I'm writing, so when I'm writing in English I would watch German Tv and vice versa. 


3. Change your writing location
I usually sit on my bed to do my work, however, I sometimes like to switch things up and go to a coffee shop instead - so stereotypical right, aha? A change of scenery can do wonders to your creative spark; it does to me! 


4. Find a topic you are passionate about
You know that feeling when you are writing about a topic that needs to be covered but maybe doesn't spark your creativity as much? Take a break from that one and instead find a topic that gets you flowing. Once you start writing about a topic that really passionates everything else will just fall into place. 


5. Don't start writing and think 'this must be amazing'
Nothing that stops me more than sitting down and thinking to myself' 'this better be amazing'. Remind yourself that not every piece you will publish will be the best piece you've ever written; lift the pressure by removing the pressure.

I like to write for myself, it makes me feel good. Not every piece has to be Harry Potter Standards and once I realised that my block was gone and this is the result.

  2. Good tips, I think we all get a block at one time or another, I know I've had quite a few in the last decade and for me a break is always the catalyst to get my writing juices going again. Mich x

  11. Great tips. When you wrote for a living having a block is really hard to deal with! I tend to do similar but over the years have learned not to force it at all. I have a running list of posts I want to write but have no time for and if I get the block I turn to them. Usually I have enough to do for other clients hat my own blog takes a back seat for. While but I'm ok with that! x
