Overcoming Writer's Block

Season 2, Episode 24,   Oct 01, 2023, 11:52 PM

Ah, writer’s block. Seen as a curse or a disease on many unsuspecting writers, it’s actually, more often than not, procrastination in disguise - and that’s something we’ve all experienced in one way or another.

But I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be this way, and in this episode, you’ll discover five ways to beat the block, take action and get some consistency back into your writing life. 

We’ll dive deep into:

  • Truly understanding why we feel blocked with our writing - because if we understand we can do something about it!
  • All the techniques I’ve used - based on neuroscience - that have helped me each time ‘the block’ has reared its ugly head.
  • How writer’s block can be linked to constipation (yup, you read that right!) and how taking time away from your manuscript might actually be what the doctor ordered!
And so much more!

By the end of the episode, you’ll have a better understanding of why we can sometimes feel blocked when it comes to our writing and, most importantly, what the bloody hell to do about it when you feel stuck. 

I hope you enjoy listening!
