Writer's Block 101 For Article Writing

As a writer who specializes in writing content-related articles, you often have very definite parameters within which you must work. Such things as word-count, topic-specific information, keywords and/or key phrases and even writing style can be dictated. We usually grumble about this. After all, these are limitations on our creativity, right? Wrong. They are boundaries that keep us from drifting too far off into the sea of writer's block.

On ancient maps the world was flat and where the seas ended, the cartographer's would always scrawl the words, "beyond this point there be dragons". Well, if you have ever been cut adrift into the seemingly boundless sea of writer's block, you've probably met a few of those dragons. When you're in the midst of a bout of writer's block, you simply cannot imagine a way out. Later, of course, you can smile, but at the time, you are beside yourself. This is why those parameters, those overbearing, creativity-stifling guidelines are great. They direct you. If you follow directions, even on a sea of emptiness, eventually you'll find your way.

Stuck for a way to start the article? Or perhaps you have a great opening line and are having trouble arranging the supporting facts in a way that is readable and concise? It could be the summary that hits you like a brick in the head, rendering you incapable of coming up with a single intelligent phrase. Whatever part of the piece you're stuck on, move past it. Write what you can. Read what you've written. Chances are you are going to find yourself filling in those blank spaces automatically. If that doesn't work, then take a break. Sometimes, getting away from your work can give you a fresh perspective when you sit back down at the keyboard.

However you choose to deal with writer's block, remember to be thankful for client's and editors who are specific enough about what they want that you can use their guidelines as a map leading you to the land beyond those dragons.
