We Asked 5 Christian Authors To Tell Us How They Get Rid Of Writer’s Block

Their answers might surprise you.

1. Sarah Young, “Jesus Calling”

“I sell my home as quickly as I can. I always buy rickety old chicken coops to make my domicile. If I have the Writer’s Block, it is because there are disgusting chicken spirits wandering the premises, trying to get inside of my mind and rule me.”

2. Max Lucado, “Grace”

“When I achieve Writer’s Block, it is because I have to rid of my degraded exoskeleton. As sweet metamorphosis begins, I feel a light burn and I lose my rapidly-browning skin. It’s beautiful, and, at the same time, horrifying.”

3. David Platt, “Radical”

“I have to just leave the office for a time and do something with my hands. I set off glorious, hot nukes in my backyard with all the plutonium I’ve stockpiled.”

4. Ann Voskamp, “One Thousand Gifts”

“When we crack open the dirt of our swollen lives open to the rain of creativity and let joy infiltrate our sticky, dry places, let joy soak into our broken skin and deep crevices, Writer’s Block passes away like the grandparent of my mother and father of my just cause. How can this not be the best thing for the world? For us?”

5. David Jeremiah, “Agents of the Apocalypse”

“I sass people. I sass, and I sass, and I sass some more. I keep making sassy comments to everyone I see: ‘Where’d you get that shirt, the Dumb Store?’ or ‘Nice trip, see you next fall!’ I sass everyone I see. Then my Writer’s Block leaves and I put on Matlock.”
