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.

    1. yes Abhi ji , thanks for this practical advice.
      I was going through a research writing (methodology) book and found some points useful for creative writing. So jotted them down here.


      1. I want to read human psychology ,how our mind or person think in a situation . Actually I know little about it ,it’s a subj in B.Ed where my interest aroused for it

      2. Daniel Kahnemans’ book – Thinking Fast and Slow is a good one.
        louise heys’ book – you can heal your life is also a good one for positivity.


  1. Hi your blog says that you are a Phd holder and you got married at young age of 19. Both of these according to me sound like very tough pathways how did you manage to overcome all difficulties and since you are a psychologist what would be your suggestion to someone who chooses a career they aren’t very sure of in life?

    1. Thanks for going through my bio and for your question . 😊😊

      I believe in one thing – if you wish to do something , start it with a positive mindset and just keep going .

      You are right . It was really tough .
      Sometimes, I thought that this is the dead end, I won’t be able to continue my studies .

      In my opinion auto suggestion and spirituality ( to some extent they say the same thing ) will help anyone and everyone in achieving theIr goal.


    1. Thank you ,
      Read a lot and automatically you will come out of block and long break is not a block Lensq . You are just taking time in coming back to your writing schedule .


  2. Taking a break is so important. There is no point in trying to force it if it doesn’t want to come. I’ve written on the same subject recently and have a technique that works when I just want to get something down on paper. There is nothing more threatening than the blank page.

  3. I agree with you on this! I actually just wrote a post about writer’s block on my blog too. I expanded on your #2 (always take a break). There is a point of writing to exhaustion. Some breaks should be encouraged.
