Dear Reader

Don’t be afraid!

At Writing Magazine one of our core aims is to identify your writing dilemmas and be a writer’s survival guide. This month we’re tackling two of the biggest problems head on, and it seems to me that they are related. Probably the most well known issue in the wider world – it’s even got its own name – is writer’s block. Some writers, particularly journos and other jobbing writers, will say it doesn’t exist, and that it is just a blanket term for various other types of procrastination. All you have to do is get on with it. But it’s not really fair to dismiss anybody else’s struggle. Whether you actually believe in The Block or not, or choose not to label it, we all have up days and down days, or times when the words flow more naturally. So we’ve got some ideas to help you clear that mental hurdle on p24.
