The Party Never Ends.   2 comments

A wild prompt appears!

When was the last time you experienced writer’s block? What do you think brought it about — and how did you dig your way out of it?

I am right now, and I’m looking for a shovel.

Writer’s block tends to strike quickly and stick around a long time, like a bad relationship. I suffer it for a while, and then eventually I get sick of it and…

Well, I’ve never really figured that part out.

I have no idea how to get rid of writer’s block. Sure, I’ve tried all the tips, tricks, prompts, and pointers. But they never really do the trick. One day, I just get a buzz of ideas in my head again, and then my thoughts take off and I’m back. I haven’t hit that point yer though, and that kind of sucks. Because I was doing really well writing wise for a while, and now its crappy to be stymied.

As for why it happens, I have even less of a clue than my ability to get rid of it. I think this time it is a mix of melencholy, obligation, and life in general. Plus, it doesn’t help I work full time and try to write blog posts in my down time. It is hard to get a good thought going when you have to stop writing every 5 minutes.

Regardless, I’ll take this moment to say sorry for the lack of content lately. I do have a lot that is almost done. Hopefully, I can get motivated enough to finish it all.

Thanks for reading,

-Shaman

  1. Maybe try writing a post no matter what. There’s no rule that says you have to push the publish button. If you don’t like how it turns out, just leave it. It might get the bug out though, in which case it would have served its purpose.

    • Thank you for the advice! I actually have been doing something similar, but I get about half way through a blog post and then get stumped. I have almost more drafts in my dashboard than I do actual posts because of it. But it does help to sort my thoughts until I feel like writing again. I think I will try to write something, without worrying about people seeing it. Maybe that will help.
