Overcoming writer’s block for poets


Log out of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram e.t.c

Switch off your phone, put it away in the closet

Sit squarely at your desk

Scribble something that doesn’t make sense

Chew up the paper

Let the ink soak your tongue then spit it out

Think hard, go deep into your thoughts

Channel that frustration

Scribble something that still doesn’t make sense

Curl the paper into a ball, hurl it at the wall

Step outside, feel the rush of wind against your skin

Let the fresh air fill up your lungs

Look further beyond…

Sometimes your muse is as simple as the chicken crossing the road

I harness words, I thrive on them. I tell stories. I am dreamer, sometimes a poet but mostly I am a Game of Thrones fanatic. Lady Olenna, Lyanna Mormont and Arya Stark are my spirit animals.
