Escaping the Writers block is one great hurdle for any writer, content creator and blogger. I remember very well that it is one of the worst feeling to have as a writer and blogger.
I happen to fall into this problem at a time and I actually went on a long writing drought, this really had a very negative effect on me and my blog but I just had to put myself together again.
When I faced the writer’s block, I actually wondered if truly I could write but reading my previous posts gave me some sort of joy but it was still not long lived because I needed to write fresh content for my reader and sincerely the search engines.
But there was good news as I was able to lift my curse and rid myself of the spell and how exactly did I do that? I will put you through now.
HOW I ESCAPED THE WRITERS BLOCK AND SAVED MY WRITING ABILITIES
I will point out simple actions that I undertook to escape the writer’s block and relearn how to create better posts and articles for my blog and websites.
CHANGE YOUR ENVIRONMENT
The very first step I took was to change my environment. I took a walk, went down to the streets and sat on the grass just to clear my head and see the world from a different perspective.
Did it work? Off course it did, as I felt more refreshed and I had a clearer mind to think deeper and have a first-hand experience of my environment.
This also help to reshape the kind of contents i churn out and i must say that i have even gotten better and happier.
DOCUMENTED MY THOUGHT ON PAPER
This was the turning point for me to turning my fortunes around and escaping the writer’s block. I realized that it was easier to start my articles by writing a template out on paper.
Normally I do this on my computer but in all honesty, I get distracted very easily – from social media, software on my laptops and e-book, I was always disoriented because I wanted to get a lot done at once, and inability to accomplish really puts me off and as you must know no one can compose even a paragraph in that frame of mind
To turn things around, I wrote my article first on a book and added a descriptive summary, so when I go back to type on my computer, it becomes a breeze to compose the post for my blog and websites.
STOPPED WRITING AROUND A KEYWORD
This was my greatest undoing, as a writer, our strength is in our ability to create writings seamlessly without boundaries. In this case, keywords were the boundaries.
What I did was to reduce my keyword incidence and write without boundary for humans alone.
I noticed that search engines also rank articles based on human interaction like sharing, liking, commenting. So in any case I was on the winning side.
REDUCED MY POST LENGTH
This was the sweetest part, before I tend to want to write posts of more than 3000 words (for real) and it was getting harder because sometimes I was putting in irrelevant excerpts and all this was killing my morale.
All I did was to keep writing till I feel I have written enough, usually at 800 – 1000 words and I make sure I don’t add to it again.
This helped to boost my confidence again as I was not writing like I was forced to meet a target.
CONCLUSION ON WRITER’S BLOCK
How I escape the writer’s block and relearned how to create more great and better articles or posts for my blog or website is really a sincere and straightforward process and I believe if you follow through, you definitely will break through the block!
