Now, now, though! Don't get ahead of yourself there, buddy; not every story-teller's writer's block is the same! There are many symptoms, unfortunately. Perhaps you can't come up with an idea. Perhaps you have too many ideas and can't commit until... poof! They taper out. PERHAPS, you just get plain BORED!
I hate to break it to you, but writer's block is not one case with one solution.
Writer's block... it's those moments where one is just staring at their paper - or computer - with this zombie face. Y'know, the works: glazed and unblinking eyes, an unhinged jaw, a slight dribble of drool slowly crawling its way down their chin... Basically, it appears as if one has no thoughts running through their head besides the stereotypical, should-be-the-writer's-block-slogan, “I have nothing to say." Completely understandable! I'm sure we've all been there! (Dear Baby Jesus, I hope it's not just me... Talk about an embarrassing blog if it was, eh?) But when you break it down, you come up with a list of countless troubles!
As luck would have it though, I write to you because I have a solution! Not in the "take four of these vitamins in two-hour intervals each recommended day, every other day of the week for all the months that end with 'y'" kind of solution... but a solution nonetheless!
Okay, here it is... You ready for it? All settled? Comfy? Are you sitting, because this might just blow you away!
Take a break.
Before you go click that little red box in the corner because you think this is some bologna idea, I've got to tell you, I'm being more serious than two kids discussing where the imaginary half-and-half line is for a cookie meant to be shared!
Oh yeah. I'm that serious.
Sure, there are a lot more - okay, millions of ways to cure raconteur-a-coma. Stepping back for a while happens to be one “prescription” that can resolve quite a few "symptoms" of the dreaded issue. Speaking as someone who's experienced it, I have to say that it has helped me. I mean, you don't have to take forever.
Honestly, if you still aren't coming up with anything, you probably still have it...
That's just how the beast works.
