Writer's Block











You know when the word you want to say is on the tip of your tongue but you can't think of it, much less say it, if your life was dependent on it? That is how I feel after weeks of mind-numbing blankness.

When I write, it's as if I'm putting together a jigsaw puzzle. I dump all the pieces out onto the table and start flipping them over, separating the edge pieces on the side. Lately a few of those pieces must have tumbled way underneath the couch of my mind. Until I find them I cannot continue with my writing puzzle.

It's times like this I wish I could be as relaxed as my dogs are. Yes, they get excited or stressed at times, but they have the ability to change gears instantly. Perhaps it's because their little puppy brains do not know any other way to be. If I could control my thought process that way, it would be wonderful tool. Maybe if I slept on the couch or chased rabbits in the backyard with them for the day. Hmmm....

It will get better (God, I hope it gets better.) Think creative thoughts for me and if you have a suggestion, question, please fire away!

Peaceful Things,

Josh

  2. I second what Marisa said!
    Also remember - not everything you write has to be profound . . . no wonder you have writer's block, everything you write has such depth! I wouldn't mind hearing about what you did over the weekend or other simple pleasures too!
    Keep smiling chief!

  3. It's just like love, baby. Once you stop looking for it, that's when it comes to you... Doesn't it suck when people say that? I always found it helpful to just start writing anything, no matter how silly it sounded or even if I wasn't sure it made sense. Eventually, good stuff comes out that you can use. Just pick a random topic and go. -- Terra :)
