How to cure writer's block fast for, faith-based, non-fiction writers
Hey there, friend! If you're reading this, chances are you've been staring at a blank page, grappling with the frustrating dance of the cursor mocking you. Welcome to the club—writer's block club that is. It's an unwelcome companion that often overstays its welcome, especially when you're a Christian woman with a burning message in your heart.
So, let's talk about this beast called writer's block and how faith can be your secret weapon to conquer it. I get it; you've been carrying around this message God had given you, for what feels like eons. But every time you sit down to write, it's like the words just won't cooperate. Trust me; you're not alone.
The struggle can definitely be real, but here's the thing: your message is powerful, and someone specific needs to hear it. So, let's break down some common writing hurdles and how faith can help you cure writer's block fast.
1. The Perfectionist's Paralysis:
I get it. You want every word to be just right, every sentence to preach. But, perfectionism can freeze you in your tracks. Remember, God doesn't call the equipped; He equips the called and the only perfect author is Yahweh Himself. Your words, imperfect as they may be, can still carry profound meaning and impact. So release the need for it to be perfect.
Repeat this Affirmations for Authors: God expects excellence not perfection and done is better than perfect.
2. Fear of Judgment:
As Christian women, sometimes we fear judgment. What if people don't resonate with my message? What if they criticize my beliefs? What if the "Church Mothers" get on me for this? Here's the truth: your authenticity is your strength. Your faith is your anchor. Embrace it, and you'll attract those who need your message the most. Nevermind the naysayers.
Repeat this Affirmations for Authors: I release the fear and embrace my God-given gifts of love power and self-discipline.
3. Finding Time in the Chaos:
Life is busy, and finding time to write can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Faith teaches us that the right time will reveal itself. It is our job to recognize that time and act on it. How do you eat an elephant (of a problem)? One bite at a time. Trust the process, carve out small pockets of time, and watch your words flow.
Repeat this Affirmations for Authors: I use my time wisely so I can accomplish the assignment God has given me.
3. Busting Creative Blocks:
Sometimes we really just don't know what to say. And well, this, my friend, is an easy one. Holy Spirit is ready and waiting to assist. You may just need to take a break. A break to dance or walk. A break to find your inspiration in another book. A break to revisit your "Ready Reader" and remember why you are writing this book in the first place. It's perfectly ok to be still a moment and know that God will supply what you need for the assignment.
Repeat this Affirmations for Authors: Holy Spirit, I trust You. Give me the words to say in this moment.
Now, Friend, these things ought to get your creative juices flowing again. If you're still feeling stuck, let's break through that writer's block together. Your message is worth sharing, and with a little faith and a helping hand, you'll soon see those words flowing onto the page. That's where I come in.
