Welcome to Episode 44: Ready To Kill That Blinking Cursor Nightmare?

It’s inevitable … it happens to every creative writer on this glorious planet! All our creative bones are feeling brittle, and we sometimes feel as though it’s time to throw in the towel! Including my team and I some days!
 
Writer’s block isn’t quite what you think. It is not a medical condition. It is not a disease. And it is definitely not a virus that takes control of your overall creative process and juices, rendering you useless and feeling stressed. The truth of the matter is … writer’s block doesn’t actually exist. (Shocked, right?!)
 
 Basically, a brick wall that we’ve built -- which is actually made of air, not bricks. (Ha ha!) And when we are in full belief that this wall is standing tall and up-right (really just a lie we tell ourselves when our creativity is low or on staycation), it becomes real. Like really real! And when we are feeling that mind block, we then become actually creatively blocked.
 
Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...

  • What is writer’s block and what some causes may be
  • 5 tips to help kill that blinking nightmare curse
  • How to improve your writing skills
  • How to write with empathy (not sympathy)
  • 10 mindful (and straightforward) writing tips
