Do you have to complete a piece of writing but are putting it off? A report, a blog article, or a letter? Are you finding that the moment you sit down to write, your mind seems to go blank? Crap! Writers block! What can you do about it?


Although, the term writers block is popular, this feeling of blockage and mind blanking is not specific to writing, but of any creative feats. Other examples include, brainstorming for a new business, dancing, musical performances, music composition, painting or photography. I’ve personally experienced this during my photography work, blanking out as I stand in front of a client waiting for me for direction. I call these Creative Blocks, where your mind just comes up empty and you feel lost. It’s purely mental.


Through practice and observation, I’ve gotten pretty good at getting past these blank moments, and this article shares some insights for unlocking your creativity. Throughout the article, I will be using writing as the example, but keep in mind that it is equally applicable to any creative activity.

Meditation and The Art of Writing

Meditation and The Art of Writing | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

I want to tell you about an invaluable writing asset.

 

It’s become a non-negotiable element of my writing process, and I hope it becomes the same for you.

 

Writing is hard work. It’s not hard like electrical engineering (a chapter in my past life), which was a mind-numbing, sleep-depriving, hair-pulling kind of hard.

 

Writing is more a sweet torture, soreness-post-crazy-workout kind of hard.

 

You know the routine: The words get stuck. The ideas get jammed. The mind gets cluttered, and you get discouraged.
