Getting Over Your Writer's Block

Whether you write professionally or recreationally, writer's block is a real obstacle to overcome. Many people struggle with it, from journalists at high-flying publications to high school students trying to finish a book report. While it may seem like the writer's block will last forever, there are some small measures you can take to jog your mind for ideas.

  1. Take a break and go for a walk.

When you're sitting at your desk and you've been staring at your monitor or paper for an hour now, your mind can become stagnant. If you've been struggling to think of something to write, simply take a break and step away from the desk. Get up and go for a walk to energize yourself. You'll feel better physically and when you get back to work, you'll feel more refreshed.

  1. Change your chair to an ergonomic Aeron chair.

If you're not comfortable when you're writing, your creativity can suffer. No one can write when their back is hurting or their behind is sore. Change out your furniture for a refurbished Herman Miller Aeron chair, complete with breathable mesh and lumbar pad support at Beverly Hill Chairs.

  1. Write for at least 30 minutes every day, even if its just rambling thoughts.

When you have writer's block, force yourself to write for at least 30 minutes everyday. Once you get started, ideas may flow from freewriting whatever is on your mind at the moment.

  1. Try to write from a different character's perspective.

If you are writing a story, try to picture the story from a different character's perspective. Use this view to inform your story. Sometimes, it can be hard to write when you get stuck in one character's perspective.

  1. Write in a different location or environment.

It can be hard to think of exciting new ideas when you've been staring at the same wall for hours. Get out of the house or office, and find a new location where you can write. The change in environment can spark some ideas for you.
