There are many ways I've been able to overcome writer's block. Here are a few ways that have worked.

1. Go exercise and bring a small pad. While exercising, ideas tend to come to mind. Capture them on your tablet.

3. Switch the time at which you write.

4. Go to a cafe in a town where you know no one. Hang out there for four hours. Don't leave until you have ten pages completed. I once did that in Spain with a yellow legal tablet.

I recently watched the YouTube documentary on football hall of famer Deion Sanders.
It's called "Deion Sanders Beyond The Glory."

A tremendous physical athlete, Deion is one of the only simultaneous two-sport athletes in the modern sports era. What impressed me the most about Deion was his focus. He answers the question of longevity at a high level of performance--14 years in the NFL--in terms o... Read more of this blog post »
