How To Destroy Writers Block by Keeping a Journal.

“I’m sure you know what it is like to have a blank page or canvas in front of you..

but you’re unable to capture the great idea you had because you can’t fully remember it.  You need something to stimulate your thoughts or help you remember.

I have a solution that’s been working for me and it may help you, too. Truth is, we tend to make it it harder than it needs to be.

Thoughts and memories are tricky things.

We can have a grand idea one moment and then a minute later we might not have a clue as to what it was.  This absolutely frustrated me for years.

The solution I found is to keep a journal…”

Getting writer’s block is a problem!  I like how he has more than one go-to way of capturing ideas dependent on where he is.

I personally have three areas to journal in:

1).  A hand-written 3-ring binder with a daily page and templates I’ve created.

2).  A desk calendar.

3).  An email area to capture ideas, thoughts and articles I want password protected.
