Share on social!

It happens to the best of us. We can be staring at a blank page or blank screen for a few minutes which turns into half an hour, and for some reason no words are flowing out of you. You begin to question everything. Am I a good writer? Is this what I’m supposed to be doing? Why am I having such a hard time expressing my thoughts on paper. All writers have been in this situation before. Writer’s block is one of the most common problems in this profession. Affirmations for writers have been proven to be such a powerful tool to ensure you experience writing success and push through writer’s block.

What are Affirmations? 

An affirmation is a positive statement that is written in the first person to help overcome self-doubt, negative thoughts, or challenges. These statements are usually read out loud to help lead your subconscious to believe them and ultimately, to begin to make positive changes in your mindset. The theory is that by repeating these positive affirmations out loud, you can begin to embrace these statement whole heartedly.

Most people say “seeing is believing.” In this case, “repeating is believing.” Repeating these positive affirmations over and over again during your daily morning or evening routine can help to improve your writing skills. If you think this idea is a bit wonky, I encourage you to keep reading.

Is there Science Behind Using Positive Affirmations?

The good news is that the practice and popularity of positive affirmations are based on widely accepted and well-established psychological theory.

How to Use Affirmations 

There are a variety of ways you can incorporate positive affirmations in your daily routine to help improve your writing skills. They’re use to help increase your confidence and believe in your abilities to do the thing you set out to do.

-Keep the positive statements short and sweet.

-Use the present tense in the statement.

-Be consistent. Practice your affirmations daily.

-Put pen to paper and write down your affirmations.

Many writers find they get the most of of their affirmations when they include them in their morning routine, however evening routines or another time of the day can work as well. These affirmations are most powerful when speaking them out loud and while making eye contact with yourself in the mirror (i.e., while brushing your teeth in the morning).

Set a reminder on your phone to ensure you remember to say these positive affirmations routinely until it become automatic. Pick one affirmation to stick with for a couple of weeks. Then feel free to switch out or add more affirmations to your routine.

The Importance of Affirmations for Writers 

Using affirmations in your daily routine can help get you in the mood to write creatively and set yourself up for success. These positive mental repetitions can help change the way we think. Over time, we can begin to think, speak, and write differently.

In addition to your morning or evening routines, I’d recommend using these positive affirmations for writers. By saying something positive and creative about yourself and your writing ability, this may trigger your brain to believe them and get you going on the right foot. These positive affirmations for writers can help you to:

  • Set the tone for your day with positive beliefs

  • Offset any negative thoughts about your writing skills
  • Crush through writer’s block
