Just Hard Work and Inspiration
In my opinion one of the smartest things you can do when faced with writers block is hop over the fence to my side and decide there is NO such things as writers block. Now don't run away, hear me out. I have reasons that switching your thinking may help you in the long run.
Why calling it writers block can hinder your goals:
It takes the power away from you, it's saying that some hint outside yourself, something you cannot control is in charge of when you are able to write... When in reality you're choosing not to for whatever reason. Find out why and work through that to write again. It may be as simple aasnd needing a new direction or inspiration, or it may be more along the lines of needing to take care of other things first. But all of the reasons are in control and you're not blocked by a mysterious force. Take control back and choose to write.
Why waiting on a muse, or attributing your accomplishments to a muse can hinder your goals:
It takes the power away from you, it's saying that some hint outside yourself, something you cannot control is in charge of when and what you are able to write. When you describe it as someone else, some muse or voices or anything other than yourself is telling you what to write instead of you, then you not only take away your own loser like you do with blaming writers block for a break, but you also take away every accomplishment. You don't deserve the positives after writing something amazing, because it wasn't you who wrote it, it's all thanks to the muse. Don't fall into this trap either. If you choose when and when not to write, then you also choose what to write about.
Instead label these writing ideas in a way that gives you back your power, control, and accomplishment:
Things may inspire you, a song, a conversation, etc - but once inspiration strikes then it is your idea that you're plotting, it's your characters that are blossoming because of your dialogue and your voice, and it is your manuscript full of your words on the pages. You choose how and when to write those words, and if they fail or they succeed you are the one who made it happen. With hard work and inspiration you take back the control and power of your writing.
How do you feel about muses and blocks? How do you keep your control to stay inspired and writing?
