Any tips for writer’s block, or getting over self-doubt?

Hi 🙂

I struggle with this problem myself a lot. I find that writing certain parts of the story that I have already quite detailed in my head can work as a catalyst to keep on writing other parts. But sometimes the only thing that will help is to get away from your desk, or wherever you like to write, and do something completely different. At some times it helps my motivation and inspiration a lot to finish a dull task like washing the dishes or cleaning my appartement and afterwards I am newly focused.

To conquer the problem of self-doubt the only thing that really helps is to write a lot. With time you will get better and you will find your work improving. Maybe you could also ask a friend or family member (or people on tumblr) to read over what you have written so far and their feedback can push your self esteem.

I hope I could be of any help? I’m still trying to figure out how to put my doubts aside and just write.
