  1. That writer’s block can be a real doozy, but the only way to really overcome it is the write something, even if it’s complete crap. Production of any kind wins over the blank page. This is a wonderful reminder of that. We should never run out of ideas with all of the resources available to us.

  2. This is great Sandy! The blank page scenario happens to me far too often it seems, thanks for sharing the science of the blank page and how to achieve results fast. I will definitely be coming back for reference the next time I hit a roadblock or find the blank page staring back at me. Thanks!

    1. Within our system, we have a library for us to use. It helps us when we need it. Would you like to take a look?

  3. Great post Sandy. I loved it. Great ideas to get over those moments of writers block. There are things all around us to get pass that blank page 🙂

  4. Having only blogged for a couple of month I haven’t quite come to this stage but I’m sure I will hit the writers block at some point! Will bookmark this page for such a day! Thank you!

    1. You are always welcome to come back. Thanks for stopping. look around, there are a lot of things for new bloggers.

  5. Hi Sandy,

    Great ideas shared! Most of the time, when I am trying to sleep at night, my mind is running with ideas that sometimes I literally become insomniac.

    1. I keep paper or something by my bed to help me write them down so I can have that blank page in my head to sleep. I concentrate on the whiteness.

  6. Sandy,
    I completely agree with your angle of writing a blog post as if you are just turning on a video first. The ironic thing is, this is exactly what I do. I actually do a video first. I almost always embed a video in my blog. Once I’ve finished the video, I know exactly what I need to say in my blog.

    I noticed that you mentioned Psychocybernetics in your blog. This was the very first personal development book I ever read (about 30 years ago)

    Thanks again,
    Jack
