Kill Your Writer’s Block

spaceageIs writer’s block getting in between you and amazing content? We’ve all been there, (really). When caffeine isn’t the answer, you need to stop, recharge and get inspired.

Here are three quick ways to obliterate writer’s block online and get back to writing your best:

1) Listen to Jobs:

Watch Steve Jobs give the commencement speech at Stanford and get inspired. He talks about loving what you do and why he credits his success to being fired from Apple. Here’s a soundbite to get you started:

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

2) Listen to Pandora:

Set up your free station on Pandora and give your writing its best soundtrack. Try going lyric-less for background music that gets your brain going. Set up a station with Ulrich Schnauss for modern new-wave or, my stand-by, composer, Philip Glass. Need something with more edge to it? Try starting a station with The Section Quartert for pop and indie-rock symphonic covers.

3) Look at Pinterest:

Browse the Inspiration section on Pinterest for ample amounts of motivation, like this:
