Writer's Block?

My mind can sometimes be my enemy. I'm looking at this blank blog post and nothing is coming to mind. This is odd. I always have a story to tell. I'm building scenes while trying to sleep or concentrate on something other than my stories. I grew up but my imagination didn't. Something as simple as a dog dish can inspire an entire story so, why can't I think of anything to write?

This is a sign of my mind getting in the way.

If I'm ever sitting in front of a computer with no idea what to write next, I'm thinking too much.  A great idea or scene will come as long as I write something.  I've said it before, I write whatever comes into my head and worry about whether or not it makes sense later. 

I type a sentence and it turns into a paragraph and then several pages. Even if I sit down with nothing in my head, I type and the scene kind of forms itself.

Writing is a release of trapped ideas, an expression of myself. I crack open my heart and pour it onto the page. To do this, I sometimes have to nudge my mind out of the way. Once the words start flowing, I get so sucked into creating I forget everything around me. *sigh* I love writing. It's always an adventure.

"Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing." ― Margaret Chittenden

  1. I agree. If you get yourself writing anything, the writer's block will fade away and you'll be on your way to what you want to be writing.

  2. I agree with Kelly. So many times I sit down to look at my blank screen and wonder how I even came up with any topic in my past. Then I realize, I just started typing until something struck me. lol

    Keep writing!

  3. Too perfect...for me, I actually haven't posted my usual post on Mondays...because I don't know what to write!

    Sometimes just getting started is the hard part...just start typing or writing...and the thoughts will come. Just like you said, sometimes writing is just a release of trapped ideas!
