I've been out of school for a bit before returning to graduate school. As such, it's been a while since I have written papers. And the papers have already started.
However, when I sit down to write, it is almost like my brain freezes up. This has been increasing as my reading has increased. It's getting to the point where the brain stops working even when I'm trying to blog. I know Writer's Block is a real thing, but I don't know how to get past it.
Part of my issue is that it's difficult for me to get the brain going when I'm at my computer. I spend too much time editing and revising while I'm writing, so it takes me forever to get even one sentence written. I've tried free writing on paper to organize my thoughts as it's much easier for me that way. But there's this weird computer, complete sentences, paragraphs with a point, etc. block.
