Understand what writer’s block really is
If you have not read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, be sure to add it to your nightstand. In this book, Pressfield talks about resistance: “We experience it as an energy field radiating from a work-in-potential. It’s a repelling force. It’s negative. Its aim is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work.” Writer’s block is a form of resistance. It’s your ego saying “no you can’t.” Don’t listen to it. You can. Continue reading
