[This is part of the series: 20 Writing Tips From John Erickson]
Writer’s block is only a thing because some cannot accept that their writing quality will fluctuate.
Plain and simple, you will go through periods of inspiration and clarity where you write fantastic and inspired pieces.
And you will go through periods where it feels like you are spinning your wheels…
Keep writing through all of it and don’t obsess over the quality.
Understand: Where quality becomes paralyzing is where writer’s block is found.
17. Writers don’t need a psychiatrist for writer’s block.
