What to do when you’re stuck


You have an extremely important project you’re working on and you can’t help but be excited about it. You’ve been working hard to make sure all your loose ends are tied up and you feel that you’re making great progress.

And then it happens.

You are suddenly stuck in place and you aren’t sure what to do. You can’t think of where to go from here and you aren’t sure how you can finish everything, particularly when you think about the deadline you need to meet. How can you get your creative juices flowing again?

Writing is an endeavor that takes a lot of brain power. It will sometimes hit you like a brick wall and make you jot down all your ideas. When they stop coming, it’s time to think logically about your project and determine the next step.

This may mean taking a little time away to clear your head and refocus on what you need to do. It may also mean diving into what’s already been done in order to get back on track and spur some new material to get on paper. Think about what you can do to center yourself and help you focus. Take action and make sure you are doing what needs to be done to help keep you on track, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Sometimes a good discussion with a friend or family member can be all you need to reenergize and get back to work.
