Do you find it hard to write sometimes? You sit there at the keyboard and just can’t get the words to come out. Or maybe you’re like me, you begin a post, then delete it. Begin again, delete it. Begin again, rewrite it, then delete it. And so on.

Sure, sometimes the posts just coming flying out – like this one. But sometimes it’s a struggle to get anything down at all.

It’s probably true that anyone who writes deals with writer’s block from time to time. But what do you do when it comes knocking on your door? Or worse, when it makes itself at home, follows you to your office and sits on your lap all day?

    I hear you. I’ve handled it that way too. Often it actually helps. Especially if I get outside for a few minutes. But most of the time I just bang at the keyboard and force my way through it. There are certainly much better strategies here.

    Great list of resources, here…

    My prescription for writer’s block is a dog leash (hopefully with dog attached) and a pair of sneakers (on your feet). Nothing like getting out for a walk and a little perspective.

    Thanks. Really good idea. I find that when I’m stuck on a larger writing project, often getting out for a good, strenous hike will clear the cobwebs. Nothing like exercise and fresh air.
