Writer's Block Oh Crap!!

How is it that we live in a world full of never ending things to write about and yet we still end up with Writer's Block. It's almost like having amnesia of the written word you know how to speak but all memory of what words mean, how to even spell at times, and the worst feeling of am I really a writer at all when this happens is unbelievable.

So how do we get passed such a thing as Writer's Block? Well like every other stressful point in our lives everybody has their own way of dealing with it. Some people can just walk out the door go to town come back and go right back to work, but for others it could take days or even months before regaining their writing ability.

So here are a few tricks I have tried and heard about that I would like to pass along. If you work during the day writing try going for a short walk no more than 15 minutes because if you walk to long you could become too tired to write, just a short, brisk walk to get the blood pumping and your brain in gear.

Take a cool shower instead of a warm, a cool shower wakes you up, where a warm shower relaxes your body and that makes your brain want to go to sleep. Take a trip down memory lane by going through some old articles and pictures this can give you some ideas for something fresh. Try opening up the windows and cranking up the tunes and dance around the house like a little kid or even with your kids. You can even break out some paper and pencil and draw your next article even if it's stick figures you never know you may be able to catch the eye of the comedy crowd.

Try out a new recipe, you can do a Pros and Cons article on a product you bought or seen in the store. Kids are great to write about because there is never a dull moment when they are around, they can say some of the funniest stuff and you don't have to do anything but wait for it, and 99% of it is priceless. Try to write about the positive of things the world is already full of the negative, make someone's day by making them smile or laugh. If you can make a reader smile or laugh they will be a faithful reader of your articles. Therefore don't be afraid to crack a joke but don't over do it and don't be offensive.

Write about the things you love, hobbies, music, art, sports, ect. With all this being said how can Writer's Block continue to plague some many talented writers? Simple we as writers push ourselves so hard to perfect our words that we slowly burn out and need to take a step back, take a breath of air, regroup, and try again, for Writer's Block is really all in our head. :)

Nature is always holds great stories to write about.
