I don’t normally get writer’s block, and I realized that it’s because 99% of what I write is seen by me only. So there is no pressure, and I can write happily along without being aware that everything I write may be appallingly bad.
But when I do try to write something that will actually see an audience, writer’s block sometimes sets in. I hear the voices of the critics in my head, and I try to critique my work from every angle as it’s being written, which results in nothing being written. And it’s a waste of effort to try and foresee every issue someone might have with what I’ve written, because 99% of the time, any error I have is one that I had no idea I was making. So in the end, I decide to just write and let myself be corrected (and it’s always a relief to have someone find the errors that I am completely blind to).
There are many other reasons for writer’s block, but “fear of the audience” is my biggest reason. Do you know why you get writer’s block?
