Dealing with writer's block isn't rocket science. All you need is self-awareness - know the root causes and act upon them accordingly.
It is always easier to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage afterward.
Best ways to prevent writer’s block:
When you start writing, go for 25 minutes straight and then take a five-minute break. Repeat it for as long as needed. However, for every fourth round, take a longer break – half an hour is ideal.
Writing requires a free, fresh, and open mind. If you’ve hit writer’s block or if you’re simply exhausted, please TAKE A BREAK.
If you don’t have enough information about the topic, then you might google about it after every 2-3 sentences. And that, my friend, will eventually put you in writer’s block.
Coined by Austrian psychiatrist, Dr. Edmund Bergler in 1947, Writer’s Block is a condition in which a writer is unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with his/her writing.
Outlining helps in constructing and organizing ideas in a manner that promotes thoughtful flow.
Not to mention, even if your outline is rough, it’s always good to know the path you’re going to walk.
For instance, you’re writing a blog on “how crypto can make you go bankrupt” but there’s this section where you just can’t think of anything to write. You’re confused, overwhelmed, anxious, and whatnot.
What do you do in that case?
Skip this section for now and move ahead. And when you’re done with all the other parts, come back to this and complete it.
Let’s not say deadline; rather, go with the word “goal”.
The basic idea behind setting a goal is to identify what you want to write and create a plan to achieve it, and this ultimately helps you stay on track or stay focused.
Don't try to fix everything in the first draft. Rather, once you complete it, give it thorough proofreading or ask a friend to do that. Ask her to leave comments and mark mistakes in the draft so that you can fix them accordingly.

You want to write, but you can’t seem to get those words flowing. Your brain is too cluttered to create new content. It is a terrible feeling and can hold a person back from finishing their work. And that's what we call "Writer's Block". While many associate writer’s blocks with procrastination, many believe it to be common among writers (even professional writers with years and years of experience). But irrespective of anything that people believe, the problem is real.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
