Combat Writer’s Block with a Sheet of Paper

Writer’s block is a phenomenon involving temporary loss of ability to begin or continue writing, usually due to lack of inspiration or creativity.”

Is a blank piece of paper driving you crazy?

There are writerly ways of overcoming the blank page, or you can Hack Your Way out of Writer’s Block.

But if you had only one sheet of paper, you could…

…Do Something Like This:

paper shipwreck

or this

snowballed home, closeup

or this

fated for never

Or this

crossed paths

Each image is made from a single sheet of paper and an amazing imagination (in this case, Peter Callesen’s).

Just Write

No matter how you try to overcome that blank page, keep in mind Steve Martin’s famous quote:

“I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.”

Now please excuse me. I’ve figured out how to fix my first novel and I need to find a pair of scissors.
