A Video to Inspire You if You’re Suffering From Writer’s Block

Writer's block is horrible. I've never suffered from it in my professional life, but when it comes to my own stuff I have been blocked and it's frustrating and exhausting. When I feel like the writing well has run dry and procrastination is rearing its ugly head then I turn to other creative people to inspire me.

Regular readers will know how much I love Ted Talks and I always find something fascinating, inspirational, provocative or moving. Today I would like to share this talk from  spoken word poet Sarah Kay. She is a charming, enchanting speaker and the poem at the end – the one she says she has been struggling over for years and years – is just jaw-droppingly good. I sat in silence  shaking my head at the end in awe, but also feeling I wanted to play with words again. So thank you Sarah.

I hope you enjoy this exceptionally talented poet.
