Writer's BlockI LOVE to write, both fiction and non-fiction. I wrote my 1st book in middle school, “The Secret Admirer”. It was a young adult novel, written in a similar style to Christopher Pike and R. L. Stein. I wrote it, by hand (computers were not mainstream yet) and I typed it up a few years later. The only person that ever read it, if I remember correctly, was my brother, Robert. He read it, did a book report on it, and even got an ‘A’. It was a pretty cool thing…

Now, most of my writing is focused on growing you business… even though if I had the time, I really should start putting the crazy ideas in my head down on paper, as some are just as good as a few of the downloads that I have gotten for my Kindle (I guess you get what you pay for, and they are free).
This year, I have wanted to write more, and I have started a number of articles and blog posts, but none strong enough to make a worthwhile read, so they just are there, halfway finished (hopefully one day I can salvage some of them to make full articles from them).
I wanted to share this blog with you and spend a minute talking about why you should write, and hopefully hear from you ideas to overcome writers block!
Writing articles, creating blogs, can be a great way to brand yourself as an expert as well as sharing your knowledge with others to help with referral marketing!
One thing that I have learned, from my younger days, is sometimes I need to get away from the computer, grab a pencil & paper, and write.
I have also learned if a piece isn’t working, I am better off to leave it, then to try and force it!

What do you do when you have writer’s block?
What can you do to keep those creative juices flowing?

    Writer’s block – it hits all of us at some point in time. What I’ve done is to have someone I trust read over what I’ve done so far or discuss ideas with me, and after I get their thoughts it usually helps get the writing flowing again.

    Like you, I also write all the time (though most of it I would never publish!). I wrote my first prize winning poetry in 7th grade and won several other contests after that.

    I love to write, and I usually will start with an idea and agonize over it for days before I actually put it into words. My last blog took over a week to finalize before I would post it. http://lisakjordan.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=58&action=edit
