Does Writers Block Really Exist?

Some people claim that writer's block doesn't exist. Their argument is that if you aren't writing, you aren't a writer, and so you can't possibly be experiencing "writer's block" Their solution to "writer's block" is to write. All you have to do is "just do it."

Is Calling It "Writers Block" Part Of The Problem?

writers block

The language of writer's block indicates that there is some obstacle outside of you. That means you have to push your way through the obstacle, or find a way around it.

But what if the name itself is the problem?

In reality, what is called "writer's block" is your own resistance to writing. This resistance is something that comes from within you. It is not an obstacle outside of you.

You might think that this nitpicking over words. As a writer, I believe profoundly that words matter, and that the right words can make all the difference.

The Resistance Of Your True Self

You can resist writing for many reasons. The critical insight is to see that "writer's block" is your own inner resistance to your efforts to write.

Why does this distinction help you solve your writing problem?

As with so many authentic solutions to problems, it matters because it makes clear that the solution to your writing problems is not outside of you. It comes from being aware of your true self.

Your Choices When You Experience Writer's Block

You have choices when it comes to feeling blocked in your writing.

You can agree with those who claim that writer's block doesn't exist. All you have to do is just do it.

So, you resolve to push yourself harder. You tell yourself that you are going to "Just Do It!" And every time you sit down and resolve to make yourself write, it's worse than it was the last time. Then you can blame yourself. You can call yourself names. "Stupid." "Lazy." You tell yourself that there is something wrong with you.

Sooner or later, between calling yourself names and the failed efforts to push yourself past your "writer's block," you just give up. You tell yourself that you don't have what it takes to be a writer.
