The little pesky problem has been waiting for me for weeks. It was hiding just around the corner of last weekend, waiting for me to get comfortable with the blank pages and time to fill them. It waited until the routine of work resumed this week, then pounced.
Writer’s block always hits me in the midst of a good stretch of creativity. I have yet to figure out what works for me, but I often advise my tutoring students to try a few tactics when they can’t seem to compose an essay: go for a walk, read a book, do a little research, take a nap, listen to music, or anything to break yourself away from the blank pages. My students seem to have more success beating writer’s block than I do.
Do you have any writer’s block/creative block-beating ideas? Please share!
until next Thursday,
Katie (unwritten, untitled)
