Writers’ block? Give yourself a break

We’ve all been there before: trying desperately to think of the words to write, yet your mind is completely blank.

This is a common problem for copywriters. We teach students on our copywriting course that they must be able to write, even when they are feeling completely uninspired.

The same applies to bloggers. They try to regularly write articles for their blogs to keep the momentum going, yet often end up hitting a wall.

When this happens, it’s best to stop and give yourself a break. There’s no point sitting in front of a computer, driving yourself mad until you eventually churn out some content that you are not particularly happy with.

As a designer, I often get a creative block. At this point I always find it’s best to stop looking at the project in hand for a while.

Go out, get some air, listen to some music – anything that might help to clear your mind and get the creative juices flowing again.

It’s different for everyone, but I generally find that giving yourself a break is the best approach. Does anyone have any other ideas?
