Writer’s block is just like that annoying fly that just won’t go away and keeps flying around. If you are a blogger, at some point you probably have or will experience writer’s block. You know when you have it because you just feel stuck as if you have nothing meaningful to share with your readers. It’s completely normal to come to a dead-end when creating content. I’m here to equip you with the armor you need to overcome this, because it will happen. But no need to fret.
1. Organize your Workspace
Is your workspace disheveled and disorganized? Studies have shown that a cleaner space can result in improved productivity. I can personally speak for myself, that clearing my working space will allow creativity to flow. My surroundings heavily influence my thought process, and if my surroundings are a mess, most likely my thought process will be as well.
2. Get on Pinterest
Pinterest consists of so much content! Any time I get in a fashion rut and can’t think of any outfits to style, I immediately run to Pinterest for inspiration. Whether your niche is fitness, natural hair, I’m positive Pinterest can spark some inspiration to get your ideas flowing. I just spent 10 minutes going through pins to pin to my boards and came across so many pins that sparked some ideas for future blog posts.
3. Review hashtags related to your niche on IG
What are some of the hashtags related to your niche? Viewing related hashtags, allows you to monitor what other people are talking about. I use this as an opportunity to see what other fashion bloggers are creating content about and finding ways where I can create the content differently on my platforms.
4. Go outdoors and take a walk
It’s refreshing and sometimes a simple change of scenery can get you somewhere
5. Change your working space
6. Create content at times When your creative juices are flowing
I create some of my juiciest content early in the morning, or very late at night. I am usually up very late writing and coming up with ideas as that’s when I typically have the clearest frame of mind. Midday I am usually daydreaming and wishing work were over. I am easily distracted during the day. By the time I get home and comfortable, my mind is more at ease whereas during the day I’m on work mode.
7. Talk to someone you trust about your project
8. Watch an Interview of Someone You’re Inspired By
Watching interviews by some of my favorite celebrities, fashion designers, and authors help spark a lot of creativity.
9. Read a Self-Help Book
10. Read an Inspirational Book about someone’s journey that you admire
11. People Watch to Get Ideas
12. Keep a Journal Handy or Go to Your notes on your iPhone & Brainstorm Idea’s in Bullet Points
Anytime and Idea pops into my head, I immediately run to my notes on my phone. I also will frequently write in my journal.
13. Remember your WHY!
Remember your “why”, remember the purpose of getting up every day. What is your purpose? Keeping this in mind will motivate you to get back in the swing of things.
14. Make a List of Your goals
Keep your goals top of mind when you find yourself in this state
15. Do something that is outside your comfort zone
