Have you ever been writing something; a poem, story etc, and suddenly find you can’t think of anything (good) to write? I have had that problem, and still do sometimes but I’ve now developed some ways of tackling that block on my creativity, so here are 5 tips to knock down the wall blocking your creative flow, that I have found helpful.

  1. Write down anything, even if it’s just a load of gobbledegook and isn’t great, because anything is better than leaving the page blank – you can always go back and get rid of/edit it later
  2. Make a mind-map of all the ideas bouncing around in your head on a computer or on paper- the writers’ block is probably there because you’ve got too many fabulous ideas stuffed inside your noggin, to focus on just one
  3. Go and do something else you love – doing other things that bring you joy can clear your mind partially of what you’re stuck on, which often helps new ideas form
  4. Take a nap – honestly, taking a short nap when you’re struggling to put your ideas to paper can be just the thing to refresh yourself and your mind.
  5. Go for a walk – this has helped me quite a few times; when I’m listening to the sounds of nature and feeling the wind on my face I’m not thinking of anything but that which is great because it’s another way of clearing my mind and nature can really help with that.

So, those are my five tips and I hope they help any creatives reading this post and you have any of your own please do share them 🙂 .

Stay true to yourself, and never let anyone deter you from the course you wish to take.
