I have writer’s block.
I don’t know how many times I’ve approached the computer meaning to sit down and blog, and instead of turning to WordPress I’ve gone to FaceBook (oh, the shame!) and played online computer games. Not gambling games — just solitaire — and I guess that has something to say about my frame of mind. Solitaire.
I don’t know what precipitated this vacuum I’m in and I hope by forcing myself to sit here and do this little bit I will get past it.
It’s like I don’t have an original thought in my head. All that comes is inane crap that I certainly don’t want to be bothered writing down.
I really want to figure out why I’ve stopped thinking. And, therefore, stopped writing.
I started a writing group at my school for kids who want to come out and learn what writing is all about. Wanted to share with them the fun that writing can be, the sense of freedom it can bring, the pure joy and exhiliration of putting words down on paper and knowing that they are YOUR words.
Do you know how hard it is to speak of the joy and satisifaction of writing when you’re not feeling it? Talk about feeling like a hypocrite!
Anyway. . .
I guess that’s it.

Kathy, Information about a writer’s block is very valuable information for people who want to write! If you share your experience and truth, it’ll help them immensely when they have one. They won’t give up because it hasn’t blindsided them.
And neither will you…it will pass.
Happy Love Day! – Amy
When your days are no longer filled with too many things to get done and not enough time to do it…..then you will be creative again my friend. Creativity need time to breath and time to develope. It cannot just be crammed into the 10 – 15 minutes that you give yourself to be creative. Just does not work that way. It will come your way again when you allow it to.
Thank you both — in the meantime I’ll just keep reminding myself to be grateful for friends like you. It helps.
It’s perfectly natural and it hits us all at some time or other.
Just tread water for the moment, the tide will resume soon and bring your muse back to shore. xxx
Thank you Cindy — that was beautifully said.
Sorry to hear you are feeling solitary!
Come and play scrabble with me on Facebook!!!
I would love to — send me an invite!
