I can see a whole series of posts about writer’s block happening on this blog. It’s the thing people ask me about the most.
Writer’s block, as an affliction, does not exist. What we’re experiencing is Resistance. It’s our Paradigm holding us back from the thing we really want to do.
One trick to help us regain control is to write in sprints. This is my go-to strategy for days when Resistance has the upper hand. Simply set a timer for 25 minutes, then sit down and write. When the alarm sounds, take a 5 minute break then go again. Not only does this combat Resistance, it helps develop focus. I’ll talk more about focus tomorrow.
For now, go do the work.
