Rid Yourself of Writer’s Block Once and For ALL

There’s No Room for Writer’s Block

I’m a huge fan of Kelton Reid, the bedroom-voiced host of the Writer Files Podcast. His guests are “la crème de la crème” of the writing community: big names, Pulitzer Prize winners, and bestselling authors. I’ve listened intently to almost every episode, and I learn something new almost every time. In each episode, he asks his guest the question: Do you believe in writer’s block? The majority of the time they say no.

Why, if the most successful writers don’t believe it exists is it still a thing?

Well, I believe it’s because those that have it haven’t figured out how to engineer their mindset, so they no longer do.

Here are a few things you can do to stop (or avoid) writer’s block (dare I say for good):

If nothing else works, you can rely on the coolest, most lethal weapon to cure writer’s block I’ve ever come across: the Glass-of-Water Technique. Before bed, fill up a glass of water. Hold it up and speak an intention into the water. Example: My intent is to tap into my creative source and write brilliantly tomorrow. I choose to be in the flow of my best writing. I am resolving my writing’s issues as I sleep and dream.

Then, drink half the water and set the half-full glass on your nightstand. Go to sleep. When you wake up the next morning, immediately drink the rest of the water. Head straight to your computer and write for at least an hour with no distractions. Do it for three nights in a row, as it might take a few nights for the command to sink into your subconscious mind, where it will work on your behalf. This may seem a bit “out there,” but give it a try. I’ve suggested it to several of my business book author clients and it works every time!

There are multiple ways to avoid or eliminate writer’s block. Keep working on it until you’re able to write fearlessly and effortlessly whenever you’d like!
