Oh, the Faithful Affliction

Well, I’ve just spent the last hour trying to mesh togetherΒ any worthwhile words, and to no avail.

What do you do when you have writer’s block?

I like to skim through all my notebooks, either finding abandoned pieces to rework or losing myself in the murkiness of who I used to be. But that apparently isn’t working right now.

Let me know your techniques. I haven’t been able to write anything for a good three days.

Help meeeeeeee,

  1. You just reminded me of something I read the other day – ‘Writers block is when your imaginary friends won’t talk to you’. It makes writers sound crazy but it’s so accurate. I’m with you though, it’s a killer. Equally as bad, is when you have so many ideas rolling through your mind that you can’t get them all down straight! School kills the creative flow 😦 When I get writers block, I tend to take a break, drink some tea (Vanilla English Breakfast) – maybe start a piece from scratch and brainstorm character traits (mind maps are my favourite) πŸ™‚

    1. That’s such a good description! That’s really what it feels like.
      And thanks for those ideas….tea can definitely get some creativeness flowing haha πŸ™‚

            1. I love to read, like, I’m pretty sure I drowned in words over the summer. But then school rolls around and most free time is spent, well, sleeping.

  2. I pray and ask God to give me the words and to fill me up. I know how you feel, I had terrible writer’s block for almost a year. Then by God’s grace my soul opened up and the words began to flow like rain. Writer’s block is a myth I believe that comes from fear. So I just don’t fear, instead I pray and write!
