Beating writers block

Writing can be a fun and amazing pass time, and a brilliant way to use your creative energies. The only thing I think most would say is terrible about writing, is when a writer get's the dreaded writers block. I does not matter how good or experienced a writer is, there is probably still going to arise problems where writers block is concerned. Some writers block can be sorted pretty quickly. It may be a case of being a little tired or uncomftable, in which case a listen to your favorite song or a hot bath can be an easy remedy. Some writers block can be a little more serious, and can last for a long time.

This can be a real problem, and one which most writers want to sort out in quick time. For somebody who has a passion for writing or earns money by writing, is obviously going to get really scared, at the prospect of not being able to flow there written words naturally. Creativity is the loaded bullet for a writer, and without it one will struggle. The internet is full of ways to cure your writers block, but I am pretty confident that most of them are complete rubbish and hold no value to you at all. I would say one thing needed to beat writers block is time. That is not to say that you have to go forgetting about writing, and give it a load of time off. No, you can give it just a small amount of time say one hour, come back and hope it has gone away.

Another way is free writing, this simply involves writing really fast about rubbish. Write whatever comes into your head and let them creativity juices flowing. Some say this is a waste of time, but it has helped me in the past. Another thing for writers block is hypnosis. People all over the western world are now practicing meditative techniques, and it is said they can be a great cure for writers block. I haven't used this myself, but I can see that the relaxation involved, could counter act the uncomfortable feelings which are apart of writers block. For me some short time away and doing something like taking a hot relaxing bath, is enough to beat writers. But for others who are not so lucky, there are other things you can do.

I used to write all the time but writer's block always got the best of me. I have at least 20 stories started on my computer but not one more than a fifth of the way done! I always struggle with the middle of stories.

go back to them stories would be my advice, just when your feeling your most creative, you may be able to put some new perspective in to your stories now. Give it a go, you never know it may just flow.
