KNOCK YOUR BLOCK OFF!
Knock Your Block Off! is a
psychological approach to ending writer’s block. It’s
about how your mind works when you write. When you
realize how your creative psyche works with your
intellect and emotional drive, a block becomes a
signpost. Recognizing how your thoughts flow or are
censured, means you can sidestep the frustration of
feeling blocked, and stay in the flow.
The writing process is a focus that can border passion, even obsession. Creativity can feel like a tease full of excitement and potential. Any thing that gets in front of where you want to go with your writing is a block. When this happens, Knock Your Block Off! and give your self the freedom of a fresh perspective.
