Hello WorldWhen I take advantage of speaking opportunities, I get a lot of questions about beating writer’s block. I let people in on a little secret: my community helps a lot with that. You see, I can get over writer’s block very quickly when I go through my comments, Twitter and Facebook replies, or links back to my articles. Sometimes I also just call people or schedule a time to talk. Not only does it strength my relationships, but in return I get some awesome blog ideas! It’s so easy for our ideas to go stale when we only hear ourselves. Plain and simple, we need feedback. Simply looking through your comments helps. But there’s a bigger picture. If you don’t have comments, then how about starting with a conversation first. Join this conversation in the comments, or write up a post about ways you’re beating writer’s block.
ReflectionBefore you move on , tell me what ways have you overcome writer’s block. Any “aha!” moments you’d like to share?
