Hope you all are doing great. Well, I am worn out writing apology notes for not being active on my blog since months for now. I kept wondering for myself as to why am I not able to make any time for myself to come and speak out on my blog.
I kept wondering on what could be the reason behind it and asking lot of questions to myself. Could it be because I am a lot stuck with my day-to-day activities revolving around my workplace or for various personal priorities?
After a long wait to figure out what exactly was blocking me out from speaking on my blog. I came across this term called – Writers Block…
Yes, there was a time when I had first begun my blogging journey exactly a year back. And, I use to wonder if there is really anything like this in real? How can anyone get drained out of ideas to write or speak?
And after doing a little bit of research on the same made me realize that what phase of blogging I was going through is what exactly means this term “Writers Block”.
Definition of Writers Block goes something like this,
Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years

And so I did dig into this topic a little more to see what could be the probable reason for this and how long can this last for an individual?
It was observed that, this could be possibly because of no inspiration, no time or no ideas and it could last for nearly few months and if it goes on to nearly a year-long gap then it will be coined as “Writers burnout”.
I thank god that it was just a block for me than a burnout.. ! 😀
Anyways, I decided to write a post on this and let everyone know the techniques I used and came out of this phase to get started back again.
- Talk to an imaginary Friend – This will definitely help you get some boost to get started all over again.
- Stop writing for a while – It’s totally okay. It is alright to stop rather than just write anything that is of no value or crappy altogether.
- Take a short trip all by yourself or with your friends – It doesn’t really matter if you can just chill yourself and breathe to feel all alive back again.
- Reread your superhero posts – yes, this will definitely get you kick started to start penning your thoughts back again. And for me the post that did the trick for me was this – Cold Coffee & French Fries.
Hope to get back and groove with you all by reading and writing many more posts to come! 😉
Happy Reading! 🙂
