Below is a video I found by Author and Producer Jeff Bollow called “Writer’s Block Instant Cure.”
I must say, when I saw the title I was instantly curious but after watching the video a few times I realised that Jeff has succinctly defined:
- What writers block is and the part your inner critic has to play
- A strategy to overcome your inner critic
- A way you can make a deal with your inner critic
Even though this video is aimed primarily at screen writers, if you replace writers block with songwriters block in your mind it makes perfect sense.
How’s that for a comprehensive explanation of songwriters block? Do you have your own way to combat songwriters block? Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you.
Personally, the video sums up my views on songwriters block perfectly.
