It can be extremely frustrating when you sit down to create content for your blog and find yourself sitting and staring at a blank screen for what feels like hours. Eventually, your writer’s block will pass. In the mean time here are a few simple strategies to help you work through writer’s block and breakthrough to brilliant writing sessions.

#1 Break your writing project into bite-sized tasks. Then, start with the easiest thing on the list. Perhaps it will be easier to outline your content first or create a rough draft for the piece. Another strategy is to focus on one paragraph at a time.  Taking baby steps helps you find a little motivation and sometimes that’s all you need.

#2 Manufacture some inspiration. If the desire to write isn’t automatically bubbling up on the inside  – create it! A few quick ways to manufacture enough inspiration to get started…

  • Go for a walk to clear your head. Sometimes the best ideas come to you when you’re away from your computer.
  • Spend 20 minutes meditating. Ask your intuition for idea and insights to share.
  • Listen to music or do something fun. Most often inspiration is lacking because you’re not feeling creative. Listening to music can tap into your creative side quickly.
  • Read. Visit other relevant blogs. Read the news. Read a magazine. There are inspiring content ideas everywhere.
