Right before writing this post, I didn’t know what I’d be writing about.
I didn’t think anything I had to say was worth saying.
I didn’t believe there was any value in my ideas.
It was easier to close my laptop and walk away from it all.
So I decided to write about it.
Here’s how I get over creative block.
- Take a deep breath
- Write about the thing that’s on your mind, even if it doesn’t make sense
- Don’t edit, don’t walk away, don’t lose your focus from the task at hand until it’s done
- Do it all over again tomorrow
For me, creative block stems from a lack of confidence in my own ideas.
The only way to get over that is to write more and build up my confidence by being comfortable hearing feedback about it.
