Five Tips for Eradicating Writer’s Block

Reprinted with permission from Nonprofit Communications Report newsletter (stevensoninc.com)


Several factors can bring about writer’s block: lack of a clear writing plan, too little research, anxiety and even boredom. Follow these steps to wipe out writer’s block:

  1. Explain it verbally first. This can be done by phone to a friend, a colleague in the office or into a tape recorder that can be played back to capture salient points.

  2. Push your “refresh” button. Walk away and get a snack or a drink. Then come back and read what you’ve written.

  3. Do more research. Gather more information than you need so you have a good deal of useful material from which to choose.

  4. Read items you’ve written in the past. Reading finished drafts of your own work can help you see ways that you’ve overcome writing obstacles in the past.

  5. Write it down. Jot down all of your ideas in no particular order. Doing so will help organize your thoughts and kick-start your creativity.
