Video Transcription – Overcome Writer’s Block:

Hey guys it’s Ryan from pinnaclepublish.com. Today I want to talk a little bit about writers block and how to cure it in four easy steps. To start off writer’s block is the same thing as creative block. People have problems with it in all areas of art or creativity. It could be anything from writing to making a book to creating a blog post to painting to drawing to filming to anything. Anything that uses your creative mind. Anyways, I’ve always had a problem with writer’s block myself and was therefore able to come up with ways to cure it.

Step 1

Remove the need for perfection. Too many people get caught up on having the perfect story, or the perfect drawing or the perfect anything for that matter. You can’t do that. You’re putting too high of a bar for yourself. I mean, obviously, we should always strive for perfect content and perfect anything but you can’t put that limitation on yourself. Especially when you’re creating.

You can always go back and edit a page that’s there, but you can’t edit a page if you never created it to begin with. So that’s step one, remove the need for perfection. Once you do that and you allow yourself to write subpar or “garbage” content, I know it sounds bad, but you’re going to find that you can flow a lot better. You’ll actually create things that are good just by allowing yourself to create garbage. It’s kind of like an oxymoron.. if that’s the word for it.

Step 2

Step two is called brainstorm. This is something that I learned way back in, I want to say, elementary school when they would have us write stories. Basically, you create a bubble and you put your main idea in the bubble and then you just send out little shoots from that bubble. Attach smaller bubbled to the shoots with related ideas that come off of the main idea. Just keep writing as many ideas as you can.
Let’s say you were writing a book. You could maybe put like activities or events that are going to occur or anything really. Just try to thing of as many things as you can and that should give you more topics to write about which will kind of help speed up the whole process of writing in general. So it’s kind of a two-way benefit there.

Step 3

Step three of the plan here to get rid of writer’s block is to start writing in different places. This is a piece of advice that somebody told me a long time ago that actually helped me a lot. It basically means that you don’t have to write in any order. You know, you don’t have to start at the beginning of the story and then write all the way down. You don’t have to do that. You can start at the end of the story, and then stop and move to the middle, and then back down to the end. Then start writing at the beginning.

You can write all over the place until you finish what you’re trying to do. That’s a good way to help cure writers block. It helps because if you get stuck in one area and you can’t thing of how to go further just move on to another area. Then come back to that first area later and you might find that your brain can start thinking again.

Step 4

Step 4 is to overcome writer’s block. take a break. Just take a 5 minute break. If you’ve been writing for two hours, 45 minutes, or even just a half hour you might need to take a creative break. Your brain can’t just go go go. So you should get up, walk around, drink some water, go to the bathroom, whatever. Personally, I’ll drink a cup of coffee and get myself in that creative state where I’m ready to go and can start writing.

Often times you’ll find that after you’ve taken a break you’ll come back and you’ll sit down and then BOOM you’ll have tons of new ideas. It will just flow right out of you. So that’s about it.

I’ll repeat them again. So the first step is to cure writer’s block is to remove the need for perfection. Not everything you do has to be perfect.

The second step is to brainstorm as many ideas as you can. This will help you come up with ideas quicker and help you create a writing flow.

The third step is that you don’t have to start writing from the beginning and work your way down. You can start anywhere in the whole writing process. The end, the beginning, the middle, chapter 1, chapter 5, chapter 3 it doesn’t matter.

Then step 4 is to take a break when you get overwhelmed. If you get backed up or you have writer’s block then take a break.
