Getting stuck in a writing rut is the worst. There are few things more annoying and frustrating than looking at a computer screen, on deadline for your latest marketing project, only to have the cursor tauntingly blink back at you. You want to fix that awkwardly worded sentence or make a witty intro suddenly appear on your screen … but it’s not happening.
You’ve got to fix this.
Everyone needs different things to get past frustrating writing moments. When I get stuck, I look to one of my favorite writers of all time: Oscar Wilde. He’s eloquent. He’s thoughtful. He’s sassy. Oh, and he has some pretty great advice for becoming a better writer. It’s a winning combination that’ll get me unstuck from even the deepest holes of writer’s block.
