Hey, beauties lets get real on blogging we all get stuck in this blank space where we can’t seem to write to fill the void. What is it you might ask, its the harsh reality of writer’s block and It happens to be very common in which writers seem to get stuck with. Your ideas have turned to nothing, you don’t have a creative bone left in your body, you want to give up. and you might think it’s unavoidable. For me, that’s how I have been feeling lately and I have not been posting. Even while writing this post, it took a lot out of me just to write because my mind always seems to become blank.
As a blogger it is so frustrating to go blank, it’s hard enough to write a post with an idea let alone when I don’t have an idea. I stare at a blank screen until I get so angry and slam my laptop and I’m done for the day but I end up never writing. They are times where I littery have ideas but don’t know how to start it or even where to start, that I start to write but then I erase it all because my post is all over the place. Or when I start writing paragraphs about a topic than I lose interest because my creative juice drys out to the point of having no more interest in it. You know what I realized my creative most exciting post I want to write about is the one my mind has a mind of its own and decides to go blank real fast. The simple posts are the easiest to write, which is so annoying.
It is a wall between ourselves and the public.
Let’s get one thing straight writer’s block isn’t a disease, nor a virus. Let me explain, writer’s block was made up to use as an excuse to say something is wrong with a person who writes, that gives them a pass to writing. It’s all in our head, for an example for me it’s like an afternoon slump or the Monday blues.
You see writing about writer’s block is better than not writing at all go figure… Guess what I’m going to do, I’m taking a stand on writer’s block and taking back what’s rightfully mine! Here are something that I will do when it happens again, and hopefully you can get some pointers out of this. If I get stuck, I’ll get away from my space writing. take a walk, take a bath, take a nap, listen to music, meditate, exercise; whatever I do I won’t just stare at my screen scowling at the problem. I will not force myself to just sit down and write just so I can post. Instead, I will write down any words or ideas I have so when my creative thinking knocks on my door ill write magic. I learned that writing takes patient just like everything else I tried to achieve.
Have any of you beauties been stuck and just stayed stuck? What are some of your ways to get out of the funk? Comment down below I’d love to know.
Until next time,
