Writer's Block - A Building Block to Creativity?

Writer's block plays a crucial role in the career of many writers. I'm one of them, I even made an earlier post about my battles with creative drought called "Blocking Writer's Block". I tend to linger on the subject because it plays a very important role into my writing process lately.

I've come to find it as a stepping stone along the path that is the creative process. A building block you might say. An inevitability that just needs to be worked through. I'm always looking for other people's insights on the subject that help me conquer creative blocks in different ways.

My girlfriend pointed me to a great article that I wanted to share with you. I find it very intuitive and helpful. I hope it will help with your struggles. And if you don't have any, pass it along to someone else that does.

"Five Ways To Overcome Creative Blocks"

Another great method is to use mind mapping to generate words and ideas around the central concept of whatever you're trying to create. It allows you to free-associate and often yields now ideas. good luck!
