Are you doing well? Today I will be talking about every writer’s dreadful encounter known as the writer’s block. I, of course, have experienced my share of writer’s block which usually is not pretty. For writers, it is not a nice feeling at all when you feel all your creativity has dried up. During those times I can imagine most writers (like myself) feel lost and do not know what to do with themselves.
Writer’s block is like being stuck in traffic and having nothing else to do but wait until the traffic starts moving again. It always annoys me because my writer’s block can remain anywhere from a few weeks to several months to even a year or more.
I sometimes envy the creative persons whose creativity and ideas just come gushing out as if there is no end to it. I have always wondered how some people could write every day because I could never do that. My creativity is not nearly as endless as that. In fact, to be more precise my creativity comes out in short and sudden spurts.
As a writer, I am very curious about knowing more about how others feel and experience writer’s block and how they overcome it. Some writers have found their ideal solution(s) for overcoming writer’s block but I have yet to find my own solutions. I just sit back and wait for my inspiration to return because if I try pushing too hard I end up with mediocre work. And I refuse to produce mediocre work.
