Writer’s block can make you feel so miserable and as we know, misery loves company only that it doesn’t have to be boring company….here are some quotes to show you that you are not alone

1. If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to ­music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don’t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people’s words will pour in where your lost words should be. Open a gap for them, create a space. Be patient.
? Hilary Mantel

2. Very often we write down a sentence too early, then another too late; what we have to do is write it down at the proper time, otherwise it’s lost.”
? Thomas Bernhard, Concrete

3. All writing problems are psychological problems. Blocks usually stem from the fear of being judged. If you imagine the world listening, you’ll never write a line. That’s why privacy is so important. You should write first drafts as if they will never be shown to anyone-Erica Jong, The New Writer’s Handbook 2007: A Practical Anthology of Best Advice for Your Craft and Career

4.The power of a writer is that he is a god of sorts. He can create his own worlds and populate them with his own people, all by the powers of his imagination. It’s the closest a man can come close to the gods. No wonder the most successful writers are considered immortals”

Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity

5.Allowing yourself to make mistakes can ultimately go beyond a writer’s block-Neeraj Agnihotri, Procrasdemon – The Artist’s Guide to Liberation From Procrastination

6.Don’t stop because you’ve hit a block. Finish the page, even if you write nothing but your own name. The block will break if you don’t give in to it. Remember, writing is a physical habit as well as whatever you want to think it is—calling, avocation, talent, genius, art – Isabelle Holland

7.There’s no such thing as writer’s block. As long as your fingers can move over the keyboard, eventually it’ll segue into something – Mary Kay Andrews

8.Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?” ? Kurt Vonnegut

9.You know, the whole thing about perfectionism. The perfectionism is very dangerous. Because of course if your fidelity to perfectionism is too high, you never do anything. Because doing anything results in…it’s actually kind of tragic because you sacrifice how gorgeous and perfect it is in your head for what it really is. And there were a couple of years where I really struggled with that.” ? David Foster Wallace

10. Oh, how I’ve envied the lives of those who could spend life sitting down. A place to sit, a place to sit! I’d lament, circling my empty chair.”
Wolfgang Hilbig, The Tidings of the Trees
