Hey Magical One!
It happens to all of us.
Writer’s Block that is.
I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t get it. (If you’re one of the anomalies that doesn’t get it, reply back to this email and let me know you exist.)
Writer’s Block can strike at any time.
While driving down the road.
In the middle of your next great American novel.
At your computer in the comfort of your own home.
It doesn’t discriminate time or place.
You could be humming along getting your goals accomplished and then BAM! it rears it’s ugly head.
So, how do you overcome such a powerful force?
There are lots of tips and tricks out there. I’ve tried lots of them. This is the one that has worked best for me.
I know, sounds silly, I mean, how can someone write if they have writer’s block? Hear me out on this.
I’ve found that by having a notebook besides me at all time is vital. When I get to the blank part of my brain that refuses to show me any more words, I head over to the notebook and start writing down stream of consciousness thoughts – even if they are “I don’t know what to write” – I keep going and eventually the words will start flowing again.
You can do this on a separate file on your computer, but I’ve found it works best when it’s done with good old fashioned pen and paper.
Tomorrow I’m going to be teaching the Success Circle peeps why this pen and paper thing works so well.
Showering you with braindrops and glitter.

P.S. Another trick I’ve found is to go on a writing date. Last Saturday was National Writing Date Day and I had decided to change it up a bit. In the past I’ve done a lot of guest speakers and it no longer was working for me (it got overwhelming for me to try to find people to join every month) and I tried something new. We did 3 short group writing sessions and guess what…nobody had writers block! Magic! I’m going to be doing more of that inside the Facebook Group. You can join HERE.
