The Agony of Writer’s Block

Sometimes you may not feel like writing, and sometimes you might find that you have writer’s block. Here are a few websites that might help you power through:

  1. What is it?  According to their website, research shows that it’s hard to be creative in a totally quiet space; and, a very loud environment is also not beneficial. But, a background like a coffee shop where there’s an ambient mix of “calm and commotion” is the perfect environment to think clearly and get stuff done. Coffitivity is simply the background noise that you can play in your headset when the environment around you is less than ideal for working in.
  2. Unstoppable Productivity Software: What is it? Unstoppable Productivity Software works around the premise of keeping you totally focused for a set period of time. You set the amount of time that you want to write, say 45 minutes. When the time goes off, you know it’s time to get up and grab some water and check on the dogs. Sit back down and repeat the process. The software keeps you accountable to yourself to get your to do list done in a fraction of the time. Where you can find it:

Need a video edited or an audio transcribed, just head to Fiverr. Where you can find it:
