Writer’s Block

This is so frustrating; I just cannot seem to write. I have so many notes and drafts saved, but nothing worth publishing.

Luckily I now have two weeks off work, which mean lots of free time. I am going to try and nurture my passion for writing, blogging and sharing my experiences and insights much more during this time.

I don’t even know why I’m writing this. My blog is supposed to be for myself as much as it is for my readers, but I can’t help feel a sense of failure at the recent lack of activity. 

I’ll try and write more over the next few days. I have a few posts in mind:

  • Dermatillomania/ skin-picking/ nail-biting
  • DBT Skills Group, Emotion Regulation week 7
  • Willingness vs Wilfulness

  1. I text things to myself…ideas…phrases…words that I like. Always have. So, once, I texted myself a very dark stanza of a poem I was writing. It was back when you had to put the number in for a new text. I messed up my number by a digit when I went to send it. Next thing I know, I got a call from a drunk man who thought his own phone sent him the text. He thought I was the voice of his phone when I answered. It was a very weird conversation, to say the least, until I.snapped to what happened. I got him calmed down and off the phone before I burst out laughing.
    Anyway…like you, I currently got nothing! But, as you said…it’s your blog. Do your thing. Sometimes your mind goes on break until it grows new ideas, I think.
    Chin up, sunshine! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. There are times when I try to write and come up dry too. The things that work for me are to read something that I wish I had written (a fantastic blog, a good book, a magazine article). If I fill myself with words that are beautifully written, I can usually get some inspiration. It also helps me to become a better writer by being exposed to really good writing. Good luck!
