Damn You Brain!
Part of trying to be a writer is the evil writers block. It isn’t so much that you get writers block it is that a few days of writer's block seems to be a quick descent from a day or two of missing your writing goals to weeks of no writing that soon becomes months or years. I have been fighting writer's block the last few weeks, and while my creative side has decided to take a break and hide somewhere deep in my brain, my “you will never make it as a writer” part has moved to the forefront seeing as my goal set earlier this year of two blogs posted per week has now slid for a few weeks now.
I can pat myself on the back and say that I have at least tried to get one blog out a week, but it still feels like I am failing on my goals, mostly because the twice a week goal was supposed to grow into three to four times a week. Seeing as I usually try to write about little trips we take around the area it has been hard since we have been on back healing lock-down. But I have a few short stories that I have in the works and while they don’t really help toward my blogging they usually help keep the creative juices flowing and not hiding in the recesses of my brain that I just can’t seem to find no matter what I do.
I have tried all the tricks and the fact is that after a few days of just staring at a blank page the idea of actually writing gets daunting. Even if I manage to do some “free-thinking” writing it just turns out to be me venting about I have nothing creative going on in my brain……..yep just like this little rant.
I am guessing that most people have their own version of writer’s block. Thankfully currently my writer’s block just means all my 13 readers miss out on my rantings and travel stories, but I can’t imagine the amount of stress writer’s block (or your own professional version of it) would put on me.
So thanks for letting me rant about writer’s block to make myself feel better and have at least get one article up online this week. And if you are currently stuck in the lack of creativity place in your life, you are not alone.
If you have any suggestions, any topics you want to have me rant on, or questions you have for me let me know. I need all the help I can get.
