8 Ways To Get Rid Of Writer's Block

Writer's block sucks, so here are some ways to get inspiration.


When trying to write poems, essays, books, or song lyrics, writer's block will get to you at some point. You may think there is simply nothing left to write about, but let me tell you, there is. The world around you and the world inside you are inspiration enough. You just have to look in the right places and put yourself in the right situations. Good luck.

1. Go on a walk.

Take a simple stroll in the park. This is a two-layered inspiration technique. In some cases, you'll spot something that will trigger ideas in your head. In others, just the act of clearing your head and giving yourself time to think will open you up to a new train of thought.

2. Listen to music.

Music is calming, exciting, and colorful. Hear the melodies flow and let it take you over. Focus on how it makes you feel and channel that feeling into your work, whatever it may be.

3. Phone a friend.

Call a friend or family member and catch up. There's the obvious technique of simply asking them what to write about, but there's another way too. Ask them about their life, what they did today, and about special things that have happened. Listening to someone else's stories are a great source of inspiration.

4. Look at art.

In person or online, art can convey intense emotion. As someone who is good friends with artists, I've seen the amount of energy and passion that just one creation takes. Experience it yourself by visiting a museum, gallery, or an online artist's collection. Brainstorm while you browse.

5. Read other material.

The best way to get your own ideas is by reading some from others. Dive into someone else's thoughts and words and use that creativity to form your own.

6. Energize yourself.

Try exercising or making some coffee. Just waking up a little bit can boost your creativity. You have to fuel up your energy to able to fuel up your mind.

7. Move your work space.

Sometimes, going from the couch to the kitchen table is enough of a change to start getting rid of writer's block. Pick yourself up from wherever you are and move to a new room. Make yourself comfortable and get back to work!

8. Get rid of distractions.

Distractions are everywhere and they are one of the main reasons for writer's block. If your brain is going a million miles an hour and trying to focus on twelve different things, it doesn't have time to be creative. Anything from loud neighbors to talking roommates to annoying pets can wreck your train of thought. Stepping out of that situation or blocking it out with headphones is the best way to let that inspiration flow.
