How to write through writer's block.

All writers have struggled with situations that hinder their productivity. I’ve heard a lot of writers say that they don’t know where to go with their stories, have no new ideas, are too affected by their mood to write, or they simply do not have the time or energy to write. I’ve seriously thought about this over the years, and came to realize that the stress of daily happenings, disorganization, and underdeveloped time management skills are the main reasons surrounding these complaints.

Most writers struggling with this issue tend to ask: How can I be more productive with my writing? Successful writers will tell you to write, and others will add to this by saying write what you know. This confuses a lot of writers because they don’t know where to start. Your best bet is to start here.

The real question you should be asking yourself is: How can I write to become more productive with my writing? Think about it. The last time you went through a writing hiatus what was happening in your day-to-day life? Did you just get married? Have a baby? Have money problems? An overload at work? A death in the family? Did someone make you extremely angry? Or perhaps you were simply overwhelmed with how cluttered the house was? What happened? Writers are people, too. We are all affected by common day to day life situations. We all react differently to these situations. Sometimes a situation that would not bother one writer will throw another into a stalemate.

Just as a stockmarket needs triggers to go up and down, writers need triggers too to get going. One always has to wait for an interesting event to break out. This is true for poetry also and if it synchronises with the writer's mood all the better. It also depends on what kind of writer is- one man's meat is another man's poision.

I love to write: therapy, such as it is, and besides, it's FREE! That's something I have always believed in, and I find it to be true! I write my feelings out through my stories or poems, and afterwards, I USUALLY feel a lot better!

Good write!
