Writers Block

Writers Block

Since I recently started a new job I have found that I am facing a massive writers block. I have a number of reviews waiting for me to write them but when I try to start on them I end up drawing a complete blank.

Can anyone give me any advice on how to work past this?

My guess is that your mind is preoccupied with the job. Hence, most of the great writers go into seclusion to work. My best advice is not to push yourself. When work becomes settled inside you, the floodgates should open again, unless work never settles inside you.

I always have trouble getting started. I generally take a couple days to get going; I might sit down and write only a paragraph per day for the first two times I start writing, but then I start to plan the rest of the review in my head. A couple days later, I will sit down and write the rest of the review (usually 3-4 pages!) in one sitting. Then I have to go back and edit, and shorten the review to meet the word limits, and figure out a title. It's a process!

I could not do it that way. I would end up rewriting and revising everything I wrote before. I could write many reviews on a certain topic, or toy, that would all be different. I have to focus on the thought at hand, otherwise it would be one endless review!

I am the same about the whole i would end up revising it everytime I open it. There have been a few reviews I have tried to do that when I start on them and have to take a break I end up re-writing all I had done before because my train of thought about the toy while its the same overall opinion, its a little bit different then before, even over a period of a couple of hours (break for dinner).

I normally use writing, weither it is just crappy poetry or something a little more, as a way to unwind from my day. I will say that part of it tis the fact that some weeks I will put in 6 days of atleast 6 hrs, max being 10 hrs, abd other weeks I will only work for an hour or 2 a day for 2 days and then a nice 5 hr day (only giving me 3 days that week). My work is physicaly and energetically demanding but its also transient based making the spring/summer a massive marketing project.
