Writer’s block

Writer’s block

Writing is an emotional  process along with  creativity.  While writing , Sometimes we feel stuck. This is a common problem. Every writer faces writer’s block at some point of time. This is a  condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing?

How to Deal With writers’ Block-

  1. Make a habit of reading and  writing in a disciplined way.

2.  Always take  break.

3. Practice writing.

4. If possible, try ‘free writing’ practice.

5. If there is self-doubt or dilemma at the time of writing, consult a writer or friend    who may guide you.






I am PhD. in Psychology, a PGDM in HR, hold a certificate in Child Guidance and Counsel ling and a writer, not necessarily in that order. My work experience includes teaching MBA students in Usha Martin and Amity Colleges in Patna and teaching Psychology in various college of Patna to B.A. and M.A. students and to law students in Swami Vivekanand law College in Lucknow. I've also taught primary school students in DPS, Dhanbad. I got married at the age of 19, in my first year of BA Psychology Hons. I finished my studies and developed my interest in women and children studies in India. My thesis is about the urban, educated Indian women. I have written Hindi articles for Hindustan, Dhanbad and the MA Psychology study course for Nalanda Open University in Patna. My interest in writing is something that happened subconsciously. But lately, after having written deep, psychological and spiritual articles and having produced books for Post Graduate Psychology students, I realized how much I love writing for children. I find it refreshing and heartening to write about their innocence, faith, fears and fearlessness. My two daughters have grown on a staple diet of magic and fairy tales and I must confess that I have enjoyed their childhood perhaps more than they did themselves. I wish to keep writing for these little people who are the bright future of our country, our civilization and our world.
