“You can’t think yourself out of a writing block; you have to write yourself out of a thinking block.” John Rogers
This is an idea I picked up from Twitter - from the writer Matt Zoller Seitz who wrote a book about the making of the HBO classic western Deadwood.
”Here is a technique I suggest to fellow writers who are blocked for whatever reason: just talk about the piece with a friend, record it, then play it back and write down the good stuff.”
I’m not sure if it would work for me at all - I’m not good at listening to audiobooks or podcasts for instance, and transcribing even interesting stuff from other people is a bore.
But perhaps I might give it a try
If you do and it works, do let me know.
