50 Creative Ways to Cure Writers Block

Whether you’re a regular blogger busting out multiple posts per day or a semi frequent writer, we all get from time to time what we call writers block. This is when no matter how hard you try to think of something fresh to write about, you simply are unable to produce the results.

You’re probably wondering why this list contains things that is totally unrelated to blogging. The reason for this is that whatever you do; you need to keep your mind away from your blog, empty the mind so that to inspire it to think of new topics to write about.

I’ve been sat at the desk before now trying to rattle my brain into what to write about and the truth is if you can’t think of what to write about then it is best that you don’t bother at all. Instead take the day off and do what ever else you can asides from blogging.

One of the best things you can be doing is marketing your blog and helping to drive traffic to it. Otherwise take your pick from the list above, enjoy.
