The common denominator throughout the majority of articles were the buzz word “Writer’s Block”. After skimming through the meat of the information, they are, in my opinion, just that, buzz words. There to get the attention of the reader and give us the comforting feeling that we are not alone. To read the same material over and over only to find out that this so called block, more kindly put, is merely a derailment from writing and it’s plausible that it is an underlying excuse to partake in other events that surround us.
The focal point of these feeds certainly provided many excuses to not write; however, I did not consider them as blockages. The word block is daunting in its own right. Stop. End. Go No Further. To name a few. The last thing we need while we are writing is to be faced with intimidating thoughts that two words can conjure up. This only serves to take our mind, with very little room to deliberate for immediate or near future recourse, from the direction we should be traveling.
Perhaps a better way to expound on the reasons why there are no words appearing on the page should not be referred to as a blockage; and should be considered a rejuvenation and research the thought process needs to continue the writing path.
With that in mind, meet your unfound written thoughts not with the stress that the words Writer’s Block present, but with a direction that will take you back to your productive writing realm by participating in some R & R.
Faced with a new character or twist in a storyline that has us pondering how to proceed may cause a stoppage in the flow of words, but it is by no means a block or a time to throw out the all to easy and common excuse buzz words. By considering a less harsh sounding R & R (Rejuvenation and Research) the mind tends to open up to the plot prospects that carry the flow of words back to the pages in the journey that takes us past the so called block.
How do you deal with the hurdle of writer’s block?
