writer’s block

26 10 2009

It’s the bane of everyone who aspires to write. You sit a the keyboard and stare at the blank screen. There’s a great idea floating around in your head, but the words defy your ability to get them on the page. And then the words disappear. 

Equally frustrating are the times ideas come and you have no way of capturing them. You’re driving the car. You’re laying in bed with no paper or pencil near and your contacts are in the bathroom on the other end of the house. You’re sitting somewhere inspirational and realize there is no paper or pencil within ten miles of you.

Writing can be very rewarding when eveything works and you have the time to work at it. Everyone says it’s a lonely experience, and that’s true. But the best part of it is when you get to share it with people who care about what you do.

New additions today: “evening games” in character sketches, “dreamscapes” in random thoughts, and “writer’s block” in observations.

Terri — I am so happy to find your blog. I love creative writing and have done a bit myself. Poetry is definitely a favorite of mine though my own creations haven’t come easily. I have liked the ones you submitted through the Westviewer and intended to tell you that.
My more intensive writing was in my own life story which covered my childhood growing up on the farm in MN. It took me a few years to complete and was an enriching and fun experience. A few people have read it and encouraged me by their reponses.
If you have an interest in reading it I am willing to share.
…and now on to reading your creations, starting with poetry.

The enemy of writer’s block…

Write even if you feel it’s terrible. Something from it will be good the next day when the muses return. Write on!
