In this video, BlueCat Founder and Judge Gordy Hoffman discusses overcoming writer’s block. Writing is a very emotional process and draining process. You may believe you can’t write anymore. Gordy says the best step for moving forward is to acknowledge that you are experiencing writer’s block. Then you should put yourself in your normal writing position and begin to write. It doesn’t matter if what you are writing is junk, the act of writing in your creative rhythm will eventually get the juices flowing and you will blow past writer’s block.
