Overcoming writer's block is as challenging as pouring the perfect tulip pattern on a latte. As a barista of words, I’ve encountered my fair share.
Staring at the blank screen is like gazing at an empty coffee mug—no amount of waiting can fill it with inspiration. So, I decided to switch up my approach and experiment by brewing multiple projects simultaneously.
Stories poured in faster than I could craft them. Inspiration splashed around my mind like americanos lining up for the morning rush.
For a moment, I thought I had reached the end of the queue. But my thoughts were scattered, darting from one coffee cup to another.
That's when I had an epiphany.
Sometimes, you just need to step away from the espresso machine and take a breather. For me, going for a run is the best way to refocus and create the right swirl for inspiration.
