Try a ‘brain dump’ to clear and focus your thoughts. A brain dump is basically a way to put everything on paper.
Brain dumping is a silly name for the highly effective method of clearing your mind. This helps you to focus on what’s important, see what’s troubling you.
You just write down every single thing that you’re thinking, as you’re thinking it. This later can become actionable lists and potential blog posts. I like using both a planner and Notebook, to help me organize my thoughts later.

2. There’s a BIG difference between your thoughts and your feelings.
Your emotions may be overwhelming your mind, making a jumble of your thoughts. It’s difficult to wade through all that.
Try to remember how you felt before this. How you were confident in your abilities and how creativity flowed for you. Hopefully by calming your emotions, your thoughts will emerge clearer and easier to convey.

3. Try doing something different.
Do something different for a while. I like to garden and clean house when I’m struggling with writing. Because it takes my full attention and is non-emotional, sometimes it jump starts my writing. I also feel accomplished when I’m done. It’s a win/win!
