Writer’s Block and Everything Else

Posted on -

Life can be a Roadblock.

 

Right now, I am sitting here thinking that I have nothing to write about. Which I know isn’t true. I have at least a few drafted ideas but only titles. No, concreate words to be had for any of them. But none seems fitting to write about. I guess I am struggling with writer’s block.  I know a lot of bloggers and writers can relate to this post.  However, I know I have plenty to write about. But none of those titles strike my fancy. I just feel off. It” not something I can easily expalin. I just feel like everything for me is off.

 

Life can be Messy.

 

Writer’s block is a messy business. I know many writers go through it. And this isn’t the first time. And I’m sure it won’t be the last. I have many ideas for posts. But for today, I don’t have the spark to write about anything else. So I hope that this post can help other writers like myself who go through what I am going through. I know I am just one blog in a sea of millions. I’m just one mother in a hood of motherhood. I am one person in this world among more than I can count.

 

Life is a brutal business.

 

There are many things in life that can bring you down. Life can bring you down. Writer’s block can bring you down. I know that there are a lot of things that can hurt you. Life is funny like that. When you think you have the upper hand, it comes down hard on you like a knife.  And it hurts like hell.  The world is a lot like that as well. It’s constantly changing. And you need to either learn to move with the change and learn to accept those changes. Or you get left behind in the dust.

 

Life Keeps Churning and Chugging On.

 

Life keeps moving. Even when you have something in life that gets hard. You must remember that no matter if you hit a hard place in your life. Or if you are just feeling down about the constant pull that is motherhood. Or feeling alone in your relationship.  Whatever it is that you may be going through. Life can be hard. Your life may not be all rainbows and sunshine. But its worth living. Because if life was easy, you would be coasting through life. And what fun would that be?

 

Live Life.

 

Just remember, to live life. Writer’s block or the hard moments. Life will get better. It may not be easy. You may have to give up a lot to live. It happens. It happens to all of us. Keep your heads held high and be proud of who you are. You may be a mother, a father, a sister, a brother, a grandmother, a grandfather, whoever and whatever you are in life, that is only one side of an ever-turning story. It is your story. You are defined by many things in life. What will you let define who are are or what you become? Just remember you control your own destiny.

My Tips for Five Ways to Deal with Writer’s Block and The Hardships of Life
Don’t Stress

 

I know, I know. Stress is a nasty thing. It can eat you up inside. It can hide inside you. And it can come from anywhere. Life can bring stress from every outlet of life. It can pour out of you. It can hurt you. And it can restrict you. It can also hurt those around you without you even knowing it. You can push people away without ever meaning to.  You can shut yourself out from the world. Or you shut yourself out from the people you love. Trust me I know. Stress comes into my life so easily. I stress out about everything. I don’t know why it’s like that for me. Is it like that for others?  For me, I have a hard time getting past my stress.

 

Break

 

Try and take a break from whatever it is that is stressing you out. Now I struggle to do this. If you can walk away, that’s great. Sometimes the stress of being a mother can catch up with you. And it may be hard to just walk away.

 

Exercise

I know it can be hard to find time to workout. I work part-time and have my daughter with me pretty much the rest of the time. Between my household responsibilities, raising my daughter, and working to help support my family. I can defiantly say I don’t have all that much time to workout.  But I want to find more time to include working out in my life. I think it would help me to feel better about myself, loose weight, and set a good example for my daughter.

 

Smile and Laugh

 

Remember its healthy to smile and laugh. Sometimes this is what makes me feel better when I am stressing out. My boyfriend knows exactly what to do and say to make me smile. And I love him for it. Yesterday I was having a rough day and today on his way home from work, he brought me flowers for no reason. I love small gestures like that.

 

Don’t Shut everyone Out

 

My mom actually gave me this advice. I tend to not talk to other people when I am stressed out or going through something. I tend to keep it to myself. My mom told me that I need to talk to people. I need to talk to someone to share whatever is bothering me. Which I have a hard time asking for help. I don’t know why. But I have it set in my mind somewhere that I need to deal with things on my own. And not bother others about my issue. Talk to your friends, your family, your significant other. In most cases these people will be happy to help and listen. They may even have some advice to give in return.

    I have a few more ideas for inspiration: Keep a journal when you are inspired by an idea to write about. Create a board in Pinterest of articles that you have read that have inspired you or that you felt you had an experience to ad or share about. Develop a habit of sharing other blog works that inspire you, on these occasions when you feel uninspired. Save an unpublished work or two in your drafts for those days when you are too busy to write you blog. Use pictures to tell a story when the words are not coming easy. These are just a few more ideas, I like where you went with this on finding ways to physically break through the writer’s block.

    I occasionally get writer’s block, but more often than not I get writer’s apathy. I think it’s related to the depression. Well, I know it is I suppose.

    Definitely exercise and don’t stress it are the best for me on writer’s block. Same thing happened to me last night. I just didn’t want to do anything, I was too exhausted. And that’s fine. Just sit back, get comfortable. It’ll come. Maybe not then. Just don’t panic.

    I do know a thing or two about writer’s block. I have written 30k words of my would be book. I’m not even halfway through the story. I have not looked at the file since more than a year. It’s getting too late now!

    Both of my daughters are writers and we all have our moments of feeling blocked. We share the same tips you suggested above and we know it will pass.
    Be gentle on yourself. The block is usually temporary and a way the brain takes time to refresh itself…. 🙂

    I heard someone speak about writer’s block once and they said they never run out of things to write about, just like they never run out of things to talk about either. For me, sometimes writer’s block simply means I’m not in the mood to interact with my blog. I’ve been blogging for about five years now and have noticed sometimes I’m really connected to it and other times not. So I’ve learned not to force it. x

    Thanks for sharing your tips when in a writer’s block situation. What I do is a take a break, have a vacation and travel, and have my camera and journal with me. When my mood and mind is ready, then I write happily.

    Oh my goodness, writer’s block has been a struggle for me through the years first in my Screenwriting at University and now with my blogging at times. I tend to use personal experiences and base my blog posts around them now, hopefully in ways that can help others.

    these are some great tips! Sometimes I find going for a run can be the most therapeutic way of overcoming writer’s block and it’s one that is healthy too! Win, win

    As a fellow blogger and communications consultant, I know the pain! Sometimes my biggest issue is remembering to write down ideas when I get inspiration (usually when I’m not at my computer!) I’ve got a Tasks and Notes app on my phone and I write notes of ideas to myself there. Very handy!
