How to Overcome Creative Constipation (Writers Block)

A true writer loves to write, it is a passion that consumes, to some it is even a craving that needs to be fulfilled.

So what happens when the words don’t come, the characters fall silent, the plot line stops… or worse.

This is Creative Constipation (aka Writer’s Block) and every writer, from professional to amateur has suffered this.  If you haven’t yet, you will – trust me.

Writer’s Block is one of the worst feelings a writer can experience.  Even the best writers will suffer it at some point or another and truthfully it feels like complete crap!

How To Cope With Noise In Communal Writing Areas

In my last blog post, regarding How to be a more organised writer, I mentioned getting your writing space organised, tidy and removing/reducing distractions. 

The lovely Firestarawesome from Deviantart dropped me a comment regarding writing space, specifically communal writing areas.

So that is what I’m focusing on today.

So, You Want To Be A Writer?

Great!  The world could always use more writers.

I’ve been writing since I was 8 years old and I’m now a lot older than 8 (we won’t discuss HOW much older). 

I have seen my work improve and I feel that over the many MANY years I’ve been writing, I’ve gleaned some personal thoughts on what (I think) people need to know if they want to be writers.
