Ahh the age-old problem for writers. I haven’t really been updating my blog for the past two weeks because I came down with a bad case of writer’s block. Nothing like staring at a blank page for hours with no luck whatsoever. It’s not that I didn’t have topics I wanted to write about, it just wasn’t flowing properly and I just became a giant squid of anger with every failed attempt.
So this past week I’ve been focusing my energy on other creative projects to try and get the juices flowing again. I finished loom knitting a hat, I did a little painting, and I did a little stress-free writing. What I mean by stress-free writing is I could just write whatever came to mind and it could be complete and utter crap. Since I don’t publicly post these pieces they are a lot less stress than writing a blog post. Sometimes just writing random bits of prose no one is going to read can really help push me through my writer’s block. I really like using the book 642 Things To Write About when I’m stuck for topics or ideas.
Luckily for all of you I have my inspiration back and I’ll be making-up the posts I missed in the next two weeks.
