Overcoming Writer’s Block–Book Review

Overcoming Writer’s Block: The Writer’s Guide to Beating the Blank Page by Marcy Pusey is anything but the usual just-push-through-it dribble that most books with similar titles spout. It’s practical in so many ways—and not just for writing! Marcy tackles the psychology of creative blocks, which is applicable in so many areas of life. 

I appreciate that Marcy’s approach is not a one-size-fits-all approach because writers are unique, and so are their creative blocks. She gives many concrete ways to reframe your thoughts (which takes practice). Overcoming Writer’s Block has inspired me to open up my neglected manuscripts again. You’ll be inspired too!

  1. I need to finish my current manuscript–mostly just proof reading, then a cover. “Holy Images: In Your Church, on Your Wall, in your imagination”

  2. I’m always interested in books on the craft, so thanks for recommending this, as I don’t think I’ve heard of this book before. And since I’m susceptible from The Block from time to time, this may be the exact book I need!
