Ain't that the truth!
Some of my bloggy friends have shared recently that they have been faced with writer's block. I know how that feels all to well.
There are days where God help anyone that gets between me and my keyboard. I have an idea in my head and it really is like a bee in a bonnet. I just HAVE to get it out.
Then there are days when I click "New Post" and sit and stare and stare and stare.
I've heard of
- Day One - On this day I will write about my toes.
- Day Two - On this day I will write about my husband's toes.
- Day Three - On this day I will post a picture of my baby's toes.
No, that's not true. I like them just fine. I'm just jealous.
I had started carrying a notebook with me and jotting down ideas for posts when they came to me. I think the notebook cursed me because now I open it and just sit and stare and stare and stare.
Then I start to panic. Aren't I interesting? Don't I have any original thoughts?
Are those other bloggers' lives really that much more post-inspiring than mine? Probably. Or maybe they are just better at fumbling their way through writer's block.
There has to be a way to stave off writer's block. Maybe there's a pill for it? I'm sure there is but it's probably illegal.
There have to be ways to overcome it. Do you have a tried and true way to break through the block? If so, please share it in the comments area.
After all, these posts aren't going to write themselves.
