    This is the perfect blog post for my situation right now. I’ve been so busy in the last couple of weeks that I didn’t even have a second to write down ideas for blog posts and now I’m eager to finally post something but I don’t know exactly what. I’ll try to follow your tips. I’m hoping for a positive result 😉

    Accept that its normal…. This one is my favourite. You always think its your own struggle as a blogger when in actual fact it effects us all!! So glad you posted about this! It makes me feel so much better about myself! Thank you xx

        You’ve said it before blogging can be quite lonely and isolating so knowing others have the same feelings as you is pretty awesome!! Thank you as always for bringing these issues to the surface xx

    Great post with some brilliant tips. Thank you! I’ve had this recently, where I just can’t write. It doesn’t flow. I do find I often gets ideas when traveling by car or bus, but my disability means I find it hard to get these ideas down then. I need to find a way!

      Thank you! Maybe it might help to spend time going over your thoughts at the end of the day. Usually at night when I am trying to sleep, I start over analysing – annoying when I am tired but sometimes helpful! I hope you manage to find a way. 🙂

    It happens to every writer and every writer struggles with it….but it’s a tough question to answer but I don’t have a great solution….for me….jumping to other projects really activate my creativity !!

    I love this. I’m actually taking a break from blogging and creative writing because I don’t feel I have anything important to share that’s worth the time, effort etc to write and the high quality that people will actually want to read. I wondered if it was even for me as I’ve been doing it a year and have under 400 followers. I get writers block and just don’t write.. Would love a follow up blog on this from you Laura Jane!

      Thank you! Your link is not working so when I click on your name, I am not directed to your blog. I would speak to WordPress because that will be stopping you from reaching views.
      I typed your blog name on google and landed up on your twitter which linked me to your blog. I noticed as well that every time I clicked on a new category like “about” or “short stories”, it opened up a new tab. You probably want to edit your links to make sure it stays on the same tab – if that makes sense?
      Your blog looks great though! Take a break if you want to rethink your ideas but do not believe that blogging is not for you. I read a statistic that 93% of blogs close after the first two months.
      I spent 4 months with practically 5 views a day and I literally just commented on every blog possible. I can do another post on tips if you would like. 🙂 x

    Fortunately I only had to deal with it once for a short time, and that’s so scary ! I felt like my mind was just empty, and my creativity gone, as you said. Those are great tips, thanks for sharing with us ✨

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you Oriana for taking the time to read and comment :). It happened to me recently. It is a really scary feeling! x

    That’s some great advice, thanks! I hate writer’s block: I always have this slight fear that I’ll never come up with an idea again! Sometimes I find writing about anything, even if it’s something you abandon, helps get the juices flowing.

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you Niall! I get what you mean – the fear of not having ideas is really frustrating. That’s a good idea, I don’t always post what I write, but I am sure that it helps in keeping my mind staying creative.

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! I can see how that would help. I have never gone to a coffee shop before because I get easily distracted, but that is a great idea. New surrounds = new thoughts. 🙂

    I try and stick to a posting schedule and whenever the posting day comes I feel so nervous about writing I usually don’t know what to write about. I know I should probably write beforehand and just schedule my posts but I can’t bring myself to do that either! I need to sort myself out lol this is a great post! Thank you for sharing, I’ll definitely be trying some tips out!

    • LauraJ says

      This made me laugh because I have failed terribly at keeping a posting schedule. My mind is all over the place and so I just write down my ideas and hope for the best!
      Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment. I hope the tips work for you! xx

    These are some really good tips! I always find leaving it for a bit helps me, I do like mindmaps but find I sometimes get a little carried away. Will definitely think about this next time I have writer’s block.

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! Yeah I like walking away and then going back. Mindmaps really help me but I never use all the ideas that I put down. I appreciate you commenting and hope the tips helped. 🙂

    Boy did I need this! Like you writers block was never something I struggled with when I started blogging, I had all the ideas in the world. But when I went back to work full time and I was limited to the time I could write it’s something I did and still do struggle with. Taking a break definitely helps (although I find it hard to accept defeat!) I never thought about reading old content, I’ll have to give that a go!

      Thank you Rachael! It is hard admitting defeat right. Sometimes I wish I could go back to mind when I first started. Maybe it is the excitement of just starting a blog that makes you think of all these ideas.
      Definitely try going through your old content. It really helps. xx

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you Kerry for reading and taking the time to comment! I agree, it creates more stress – I have tried to force ideas before and it never turns out well. x

I would love to read your thoughts!
