I try to post something here several times a week. If I can’t, it really bothers me. It surprises me how much it bothers me. A friend of mine said, “We write because we must write“. I find this to be extremely accurate.
So what do you do when you’ve got that dreaded Writer’s Block? I have found that what seems to work for me is to simply step back and find a different point of view.
Let me give you an example.
I had an amazing photo prompt that I was trying to write a poem for. Nothing came. Well, that’s not true. Nothing postable came. I tried for days! I’d step away from it (which helps sometimes) and go back to it at a later time and try again. Nope. Didn’t work.
What I finally did was to look at different versions of this photo. I found one I liked and boom! About 15 minutes later, I had a poem that I would say is one of my best.
So try a different perspective. A different point of view. You might just be surprised at what comes from it!
