VIDEO: The Cure For (Song) Writers Block – Found?

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.

  1. Great ideas and great video communication! Will try this soon. Have written quite a few songs as a hobby over the years. For a while though as they were getting better I found myself to be writing them less frequently. So this should help me to get started again with this very expressive art form. Thanks!

    P.S. My website is not begun yet, so check back later toward the end of October as I haven’t got it going yet. I Hope to get it up and running soon though and this should help with website writers block too.

  2. Hi Vicky, nice to hear from you 🙂
    Your feelings about this video are the same one I had when I first saw it. AH HA! I now know what is going on in my head as I’m trying to write.
    I do love the fact that our “inner critic” is given a job in the rewriting part of the songwriting process rather than at the playful creative part.
    I’ll certainly keep a lookout for your website (it’s a 404 page at the moment) but let me know when it all up and running.
    Corey 🙂
