No one decides to have writer’s block. No one wakes up in the morning and thinks, “I feel like having writer’s block today.”
On the contrary, getting stuck in a writing rut is something that everyone tries to avoid. What’s the best way?
Writing! Journaling, specifically.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “How can the cure be exactly what you want to do when your inability to do it is what’s ailing you?” It’s not. At least, not exactly. Let me explain.
Why Journaling Is Good For Writers
Your brain is a muscle. I’m sure you’re aware of that. The more you use it, the easier it is to use. The more you study for a test, the easier the test is to take. The more often you work puzzles, the easier they are to work.
When you exercise your brain, you see results.
You may have noticed how just the act of writing a chapter in your book will often spark ideas for the next chapter, or later chapters. Sometimes just creating an outline can generate ideas and cause you to start fleshing them out.
This is where journaling comes in—it’s a way to exercise your brain.
“Hold on,” you’re thinking. “What am I supposed to journal about?”
There will be some days when you write whatever comes to mind. But there will be other days when your brain will not cooperate. That’s known as writer’s block.
This is the perfect opportunity to use daily journaling prompts to unlock your creativity.
