Don’t Fight It (2/16)

What I’ve learned to do – and it’s consistently effective – is to never try to push through the writer’s block.

First, I try to get past the beating-myself-up part by telling myself that I’ve worked hard and it’s ok to take breaks.

Then I do something that helps me zone out, like reading lifestyle blogs, online window shopping, or reading a novel.

After that, I usually try to sleep on it. By the next morning, I’m almost always ready to write again, and I write with greater efficiency than I would have if I’d tried to do it the day before.
