Writer’s block is nothing to be embarrassed about. Whether it’s been a day or a year, it happens to everyone! Fear not, cures exist.

2. Read philosophy, allegorical literature, or really anything
I like to read some classic Aristotle/Plato/Socrates but also Nietzsche, Descartes, and Kant.
Some allegorical literature includes Faerie Queene, Animal Farm, Dante’s Divine Comedy, and The Little Prince.
3. Listen to music with no lyrics
This can be classical music, jazz, techno, acoustic, etc.
Either try to come up with lyrics to the song or just forget about words completely and vibe out.
4. Engage with the world around you
Go on a walk, hang out with friends, call your mom, get out of your head.
5. Bounce ideas off a friend
Sometimes it helps to get the juices flowing but sometimes it just helps to think out loud.
6. Writing anything and everything that comes to your mind for 10 minutes
Even if it’s “bad.”
