How to Conquer Writer’s Block: Tip 13
UNDERSTAND YOUR BLOCK
I think it’s truly important to understand why you are not writing at a particular period in your life, and gain some compassion for yourself while coming to this understanding. There may be a need to stop disappearing into your work. Everyone’s need is probably different: I stopped writing for a while after my mother died, she who had introduced me to the written word, and was my biggest supporter. I suddenly wanted to get up from my desk and garden, cook, eat, walk dogs, sing, have conversations with others while the sun still shone. In other words, seize the moment! A cliche, but a cliche I’d never actually lived. What is your understanding of your block?
