I Am Struggling With Writer's Block Right Now

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People


    It's so annoying. I feel so listless. I open up my word document and just stare at the dang monitor. I just can't bring my hands to the keyboard and type the words swimming in my head. I can't find a way to write what I want to write. I haven't written any of my stories in 16...

    Hope It's Temporary

    I guess I'm breaking the silence of the group here because though I have writer's block, I am writing a story about writer's block. Ha ha! Wow. I just had yet another huge brainfart while writing this. Funny, because I ate a lot of boiled eggs for dinner...I have no idea what I...

    Disclaimer: I don't claim to be a writer. But I can't write anymore. I don't know what went wrong. I used to write stuff for fun. But I can't now. I think I know the reason. I can't think properly these days. Whatever I think about soon gets lost right in the middle and I...

    I have been working on a novel for roughly a year, and I fear I will never finish. I have a bad feeling that the plot will not make sense since I have been so awful at getting it done. I am out of school and soon will be off to work full weeks. I...

    Try 'writer's Wall'

    I know what the scenes are, roughly. I know I care about the characters. I know I want to reach the sequel. I KNOW I can write the ending sections to Dark Matters. But... ...my hands won't believe me. :( And my brain seems to be checked out on EVERYTHING recently. I just feel...

    It's Pain Without Ibprofern

    Writer's block is the most painful symptom there is no pill for. For anyone who prides herself on her active imagination (me) it's torture. It's a where-do-I-go-from-here that would do a soap opera proud. But the actual details would never reach the big (or even) little screen...

    This paper is never going to get written.

    I can't think and I can't find any information to write it. I'm seriously just considering not even doing the paper. I literally can't.

    What Is Writing?

    I don't even enjoy writing. I don't even have success as a writer: 8 times of 10 I get criticized or completely ignored. I don't even deserve writing, I mean, seriously: do I really have talent? Who do I think I am? Still, pretending that it doesn't matter that now it takes me...
