Reader’s Block Is Real! 

Ever get to the point where you can’t, for the life of you, pick up a book and read? You, my friend, have encountered “reader’s block.” There are many causes, like boredom, overload, or exhaustion. Basically, we think reader’s block is a lot like writer’s block but eviler.

Okay, maybe not eviler, per se, but a problem that authors (or anyone for that matter) may encounter once in a while. After all, Stephen King says that if you’re not reading, you’re not writing. You can see how this may cause an issue for writers, no?

So, in this podcast episode, we chat about the various causes of reader’s block and offer a long list of how to overcome it so you can get back to writing!
