What advice would you give a new writer for getting through writer's block?
Put on your most soothing CD. The one that cheers you up when you're depressed; the one that acts like chocolate to pre-menstrual ... you get the idea.
Someone once told me about a writing trick that I use. When I have writers block I write a description about a common item without using the name or any part of the name.
For example: Chocolate Ice cream (Cannot use chocolate, ice, or cream), Pick up trucks (cannot use pick, up, or truck), Kitchen Table (cannot use kitchen or table), and Bathroom sink (cannot use bathroom or sink).
I hope this is as helpful for you as it has been for me.
Every writer has experienced writer's block at one point or another. My suggestion would be whatever article or assignment you are trying to get through, the part you are stuck on start brainstorming. This can also help if you are having trouble with getting started as well. Write down ideas that come to mind, make a list; for example if you are writing about "The History of Jamestown" your list could look something like this:
a) What type of fashion do the people in Jamestown wear?
b) Were did Jamestown get its name?
c) Are there get famous people who were born or once lived in Jamestown.
Then you can take your list do your research, and hopefully this will give you a jumpstart to getting pass your writer's block.
The trick is not to worry about it. You've got the knack, it'll come back!
Hop some hubs. Get ideas for hubs by reading other hubs.
Just stop writing hubs and do the other activities for a while. Like go to the forums page. Go to the answers page. You will eventually get ideas on hub topics. Sometimes just being involved in hubpages is enough to generate topics to write on.
Remember you don't have to write every day or week.
