Writer’s block is one of the biggest obstacles you will face as a writer. I know because I’m probably a lot like you.
You see, I spent twenty years writing my first novel in the nooks and crannies of my busy day while I was working, going to school, raising a family and all the things that those activities require of you.
And, when I was writing, a good portion of the time I was battling writer’s block, wondering what the heck do I do next, where is this thing going?
Well, if any of that sounds familiar just keep reading. Because I’m about to share with you some things I’ve learned over two, going on three decades as a writer now, and save you a lot of wasted time and effort, maybe even some tears.
Sometimes I would just give up completely for weeks and even months at a time. As you can probably imagine, it was a very frustrating situation.
But one day I realized a strange thing. Once I had completely given up and stopped trying, the solution to the problem I had been working on would come to me as if magically from nowhere and I would go back to writing with as much enthusiasm or more than I had before.
I didn’t know how or why this happened until much later but I knew I could count on it like clockwork, and you can too. That’s why I created How To Day Dream Your Way Out Of Writer’s Block: A Step By Step Guide For Novelists To Jump Start Your Creativity.
Writing Is A Process: Writer’s Block Is A Missing Step From That Process
When people suffer from writer’s block it can be a downward spiral that can last for hours, days, weeks or even, in some cases, years. This leads people to believe that they’ve lost their creativity.
But just what is creativity?
Is it a thing?
No, you can’t put it into a wheelbarrow.
Creativity, like writing itself, is also a process and, like any process, when some of the steps are missing, even just one step in the process, the whole thing can come to a grinding halt.
One of the things I learned to do is break the writing process down, step by step, to think about what I was doing (or not doing) and what I needed to do.
But, even if you know what you need to do to overcome writer’s block you don’t know how to do it.
And this is where it is important to understand how the human mind works and how your brain communicates. Did you know you actually have three minds and two types of imagination?
Well, you do.
“A Problem Caused At One Level Of Consciousness Cannot Be Solved At The Same Level Of Consciousness”
You know who said that?
Well, he’s correct.
Because the other thing I learned is that writer’s block is largely a subconscious problem that must be solved consciously by changing your level of consciousness.
You see, this is what was happening to me when I would give up after not being able to come up with the solution I was working on. My level of consciousness would change without me even knowing it.
How to consciously change your level of consciousness is just one of the things you will learn in How To Day Dream Your Way Out Of Writer’s Block: A Step By Step Guide For Novelists To Jump Start Your Creativity.
