Recovering from your First Writer's Block

As writers, we’ll more than likely deal with a case of writer’s block. Causing us to be in a state of blockage and sadness because we can’t work towards our craft.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at how you can properly recover from your first writer’s block. Allowing you to feel stress-free and happy from this sort of thing.

Take Things Slow

The most important thing to realize about writer’s block is you shouldn’t rush yourself out of it. There’s a reason it’s happening to you and you should slowly get yourself out of it. Before you know it, you’ll be on your way to recovering from it.

Create a Routine

The best way to get out of writer’s block is to get back into a routine. Most of the time writer’s block occurs when the writer doesn’t have a normal schedule set-up around them.

Take time to create a routine around your daily schedule. Once you get comfortable with it, the ideas will start to flow. Once the ideas start to flow, come up with a timeframe to address it.

Focus on the World Outside of Screenwriting

Writer’s block occurs a lot of the time when writer’s are overworked. Meaning their body gives them a sign to relax.

Take some time off of writing and don’t even think about it. Focus on the little things and regain your mental health. Meaning you need to be a normal state of happiness for you to properly work. Relax, and once you feel rejuvenated, slowly head back into writing.

Once an Idea Hits, Attack It

The other option for getting over writer’s block is to take some time off and once an idea happens to immediately attack it.

This doesn’t mean you should spend countless weeks non-stop working at it, but to dedicate a certain amount of time every single day to focus on writing. Before you know it, you’ll be on your way to recovering from writer’s block.


When you first deal with writer’s block, it might seem like the end of the world, but it’s not. Just about every writer deals with it at one point or another point. Don’t overreact and realize everything will be okay.
