When was the last time you experienced writer’s block? What do you think brought it about — and how did you dig your way out of it?

I think that I have already written this before, but since I am not sure, I’ll write it again; since no one has ever seriously had a speaking block, there isn’t really any reason why one would have writer’s block, the solution is to simply write, even if it is just gibberish, gems may peek out from amongst all of the rubble.

Those words resonated with me and have helped me on more than one occasion. I wrote just the other day that I was having troubles with my novel, it has nothing to do with writer’s block, it is more of an emotional block and that is fine. I will get back to it.

Right now I have been polishing my political essays and I am up to 350. Once I have polished and edited the complete year’s worth, I will be able to cull the weaker ones from the ones that I am proud of and I will be writing to a few publishing houses to see what my chances are with it getting a yes. So I am very excited about this. I haven’t any issues with writer’s block when I am writing for my personal blog and especially when I am writing my daily political essays, the words just flow and I am very thankful for that.

I think that the keys to writing are perseverance, discipline, hope and faith in your story. If you have all, a few or even just one of the ingredients above, you are on to something. Just keep writing.
