Blogger’s Guide to Writer’s Block

It’s been two weeks since I began posting 4 times a week (Monday-Thursday at 7pm) on EKD and I just knew writer’s block would strike sooner or later. So instead of driving myself crazy trying to create content that I don’t love, I thought I’d share my tips for when you’re creatively stifled.

Stop right now, thank you very much

If you’re struggling with what to write, be it a blog post or essay – walk away. I find taking a few hours off is the best way to refresh your creative juice. I also try to keep my mind busy, which may include binge watching Pretty Little Liars – Hey, whatever works for you.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself

When I can’t find the words or the creative to begin a blog post, I read my own blog. Going back through old posts really helps me to get back into my groove and usually inspires something new. This way, I am reminded of my writing style, which stops me from pushing out content that doesn’t suit my vibe.

I’m sooo Cosmopolitan

Sometimes I whip out my favourite magazines and read them cover to cover, starting with the Editors Letter. This is my go-to inspiration because they always leave me feeling motivated and inspired. And let’s be honest, the beauty and fashion editors are the ones that truly know #ChicVibesOnly!

I’m going to take the rest of the evening off, read the new issue of Cosmo and hope that tomorrow, writer’s block doesn’t kill my vibe… What do you do when writer’s block strikes ? I’d love to know!




  1. I garden. Being away from my computer makes me want to be in front of my computer. Murphy’s Law. I take pictures and use them as prompts. I read novels or books or my journal or old blogs.

  2. I take a walk to take away my bloggers block blues. Just stepping outside and feeling the energy of the people in NY inspires me. I also read Flipboard, or Bustle to catch up on current trending subjects. Hope this helps.
