5 Ways To Beat Writers Block

Writer’s Block Sucks

If you’re a writer you have very likely experienced writers block at some point and I think we can all agree that it straight up sucks. I’ve been blogging for a few years now and over time it did get harder to come up with new topics and post ideas. Especially after I started university. I also know that many other bloggers also suffer from this problem as I’ve talked about it in the comments section with multiple bloggers. I thought I would share some ways that helped me combat writer’s block that may help you do the same:


A lot of bloggers enjoy using prompts to come up with ideas for new topics to write about and a lot of blogs do offer prompts. I think prompts are a great way to get your creative juices flowing when you feel like you can’t think of what topics to write on.

Take a break

Sometimes the best ideas come to you when you least expect them. If you feel like you’ve tried everything and still aren’t able to write take a break for a while until you start feeling inspired again. I think giving your mind a break and letting the idea come to you instead of forcing it out is a better idea.


I have found meditation to be really life changing for me. Whenever I feel like I’m in a rut- not just with writing even with life in general- I just sit down and meditate for a while. It’s like a breath of fresh air for your mind and will help you get rid of all the extra noise in your head. It will help you concentrate on the problem and help you solve it.

Look for inspiration

Just because you can’t write doesn’t mean you can’t read! Try checking out other blogs and draw inspiration from their work. It might inspire you to write something. I try to read at least 50 new posts a day these days because I really have little else going on and I want to spend my time supporting other bloggers.

Try something new

I’ve noticed that when I have writers block it’s sometimes because I’ve been writing similar posts or posts on the same topic for a while and my brain is like we need to do something new. This might be why you’re experiencing writers block as well. Try writing on a different niche or try writing a different type of post. Switch it up a little and it might inspire you to start writing again!

  1. I am currently dealing with writer’s block and yes it sucks. It’s partly due to my university assignment load. I really want to write and post something but I have nothing! I’m hoping these tips help though 🖒

  2. Good post… I definitely have experience writers block before as well. However, when I take a break by exercising I usually have thought of at least two or three ideas before I’m done…

  3. Thanks for sharing this. I blog weekly and I plan ahead, with some regular topics. For example, once a month I feature another poet. When I am in the Netherlands, I may do a travel piece with a related poem. I also have a folder with themes and dates, such as International Pasta Day, that I might be able to write about.

  4. Thanks for the tips they were really helpful, yes I have had writers block but what I tend to do is if I don’t have a post idea I do it based off of what I have done during the week! I’ll definitely use these those! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great advice Pooja. If I were to have writer’s block I think I’d take myself away from it all for a few hours, do something mundane like dishes or cleaning and thoughts of writing will soon come to mind 🙂

  8. Great info. Personally I think that you need to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. Then you need to know what it is that drives you, once referred too as your pilot light, it could be a passion to inspire, to educate, passion for technology, history, film music etc…
    From them too answers you have the backbone to any piece you want to write. 🙂

  10. Yeah, I find taking a little break away from writing to help me get over writer’s block and most often I find that there’s a psychological barrier that stops me from moving forward, be it fear of failure or the fear of success. And most times when I simply accept that this is what my state of mind is and there is nothing I can do about it at the moment and just live through it, I find that somehow magically the block just gets resolved on its own and I am able to write again, and much better than before too.
