Writer’s Block

Question: How do you deal with writer’s block?

Answer:  Well, there’s the old stand-bys for writers block: go for a walk, take a nap, have coffee or tea with a friend, run around the house like a crazy-person chasing your favourite child(ren) while pretending to be the Tickle Monster … These are great for times when you just need to get away from the project for a short while.

However, on those occasions when I reach a point where I don’t feel like I’m making progress, I stop and walk away from the project for a while. Days, weeks, months, and some times even years. I always have multiple projects on the go, so I switch gears and tackle something else for a bit. It changes my mental energy and keeps me productive.
