Sitting in the same location to write each day allows a writer to have a ritual. Often, sitting at your desk or your favorite coffee shop signals to your brain that it’s time to write.

However, if you find yourself in your regular place and get stuck, a change in location may help. A trip to the library may help you refocus. You can also try a new coffee house to see if the different vibe helps you write. If you’re home, try another room in your house/apartment to see if a different view will allow you to focus on the writing task at hand.

If you’re still stuck after trying various locations, contact a coach for some assistance on overcoming writer’s block.
