Top Tips to Avoid Writers Block

If you write for a living then writer’s block is something to be avoided at all costs. Yet with the pressure of constantly creating ideas sometimes the well can dry up. Luckily, the productivity website Stop Procrastinating conducted a survey with 2000 writers to find out what techniques they use to beat writer’s block.

The 25 techniques they writers came up with are powerful because many of them had at one time considered giving up and starting a new career. Yet all of them pulled through.

Maybe they weren’t seriously about giving up, or maybe they had to at least reach rock bottom: the thought of not writing was enough to get them writing again. Giving up is worse that not doing at all.

From practical advice from pretending to write a letter to a friend or writing for shorter but more intense periods, to more unorthodox suggestions from taking a break and baking a cake or having a cold shower, the full survey results can be found below in this helpful infographic.
