    Breaking The Chain of Writer’s Block: Part 1

    By Jacob Krueger

    Your creative brain is like a child.  And like any child, it has extraordinary creative capabilities.  If you want to remember what it was like to create freely, go to a playground and watch a child play. A child doesn’t wonder if she’s playing with her My Little Pony correctly, if her action figure has an appropriate story arc, or if an audience will connect with her main character.  A child doesn’t watch the clock, wonder if she has anything valuable to say or put off playing for another time so that she can wash the dishes.

    A child simply plays, naturally connected to the limitless source of creativity within.

    It was this feeling of creative connection that most likely lead you to become a writer in the first place.  But if you’re like most writers, you’ve probably found that as you’ve grown up, your relationship with that childlike inner artist has changed.  Sometimes your writing is flowing, and other times it feels like you’re in a barren desert without a spark of creative life. There are so many things that come between us and our writing as we get older. Professional aspirations, fear of being judged, misguided teachers, confusing or contradictory feedback, deep rooted emotional blocks, writing for others instead of yourself, and the tremendous pressure we put on ourselves to succeed.

    Every writer struggles with writers block at some point in their career.

    And sometimes when things get bad enough, we can start to wonder if that creative child is still there at all, or if we’ve somehow lost it along the way.

    Learn to play again.

    Becoming a successful writer means learning how to get your creativity flowing freely again. This series will help you discover the tools you need to recapture the joy of writing, and shape the playful creativity of your inner artist into the kind of screenplay you have always dreamed of writing. Check out Breaking The Chain of Writer’s Block Part 2, in which I describe some of the road blocks that stand between writers and their inner artists, and ways you can begin to overcome them.
