BNR 91: How to Deal with Writer’s Block

Jun 7, 2016
Brand Newsroom Marketing Podcast

Have you ever sat there staring at your computer screen, totally stuck? You know want you want to say, but you have no idea how to say it. The words just aren’t coming. It doesn’t matter that your deadline is looming, you’ve drawn a total blank.

Today, the Brand Newsroom team looks at “writer’s block” and shares some great tips for pushing through it. This episode is all about ways to get the words flowing.

Here are some key take-outs:

“I have blocks of time in my calendar that say ‘writing from home’ and I really need silence. I don’t want music on, I don’t want noise in the house — if something breaks my flow it takes me twice as long. — Sarah

“When you’re thinking about it, get it down. Sometimes I can’t get to sleep because there’s an idea that I’m thinking about. Just write it down.” — Sarah
