Writer’s block is a terrible thing that almost every writer (if not all) will go through during the process of writing a novel. Here’s some advice to get you through this halt in your writing progress.
1) Take a break.
Give yourself some time to recollect your thoughts. Try taking up another creative hobby such as art or crafts. Something that helps me personally is to spend time outside and read a novel that made me fall in love with writing in the first place.
2) Don’t Panic.
Writer’s block is not the end of your writing career. It’s just an obstacle that you need to get over so don’t stress. It will fade.
3) Change your environment.
It’s always a good thing to spice things up a bit to get the words flowing. So try finding a new place to write. Who knows? It may be just what you need.
4) Listen to music.
People overcome writer’s block by writing! Just put your pencil to paper and write whatever. Write with your heart and go with it. Don’t worry about punctuation and editing. That comes later. Remember that first drafts don’t have to be perfect. They just have to be written. “You might not write well every day, but you can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.” –Jodi Picoult
6) Don’t give up!
I know that I say this a lot, but I think that this is just the best advice that can be given to writers. Writing a novel is hard, but not impossible. Professional authors are just amateur writers who didn’t give up!
