Overcoming “Writer’s Block” with Index Cards and Memorandums

This past week, I taught 2 workshops, 1 for the Association of Iberian and Latin American Studies of Australasia (AILASA) and another one (over 2 days) for Rutgers University Newark’s School of Graduate Studies. During both workshops, I got asked the same question about fighting “writer’s block” (“Professor Pacheco-Vega, how do you fight Writer’s Block, what would be the easiest strategy to overcome it?”, and I answered with exactly the same strategy in both cases):

The trusty and humble “index card” and the memorandum.

Note how even writing two index cards can give me a strong enough “emotional boost” to compel me to write a memorandum.

Hopefully this blog post will be useful to you too.
