Overcoming Writer’s Block

Posted in Writer's Block tagged at 9:30 am by Rebecca Hein

Last week I noted that writer’s block in subtle form can be simply a refusal of one’s ideas to materialize in good order. Words can flow, but if your content won’t behave, how can you arrange it in logical sequence?

This was my struggle. I couldn’t write even the first chapter of a book for which my concept was clear. For months I saw no way out of this difficulty.

My problem turned out to be a failure to be true to myself; not in the substance of my book, but in another area of my life. Thus our creativity depends on finding and maintaining internal harmony.
