Writers’ Block, according to Wikipedia, is a condition, primarily associated with writing as a profession (in my case, blogging) in which an author loses the ability to produce new work.
There it is! I just diagnosed myself with “writer’s block”!
I actually wrote an entire blog for you but just cannot post it as I am having such a hard time connecting to it. I’ve had an unusually busy/crazy/wacky month and that’s why I was not able to sit down for a few good hours at my computer to dab into the flow of my thoughts.
It’s been 1/2 an hour here, 15 minutes there just to get a few words in. So I thought the best would be to let you know of my little “bump on the road” and make a blog out of it!
The block made me realize that I’m inflicting stress upon myself to get the blog out on time and preventing myself from really getting into it and enjoying the process. I love writing for you. It comes so naturally to me, directly from my heart and soul, stemming from my own day-to-day learnings and experiences. Let’s just say I had way too many day to day experiences to choose from!
What’s better than honesty?
By telling you the truth about the block I already feel lighter and know that in due time I’ll be back to my usual self.
So if I’m writing about my writers’ block does that mean I’m unblocked?! 😀
We only get “blocked” because of the pressure of perfection we inflict upon ourselves. Let’s load off one or two unnecessary stressful issues and breathe in between.
Let it out, you’ll bounce back stronger and happier and way more productive. I’m aiming towards that direction.
I will come back to you later with a fresh one. But in the meantime, stay dry and warm and cozy up to “unblocked” thoughts.
Take the pressure off and begin to feel the flow.
