    I Am Looking For Beta Testers For My Writers Block Course

    Hi all, I used to have extreme writers block as a poet and writer because of my fear of rejection (even writing this would have been a big deal for me a few months ago). I used EFT to overcome my writer's block. After my breakthrough I asked my coach to work with me to put...

    Jumbled Mess

    My mind is a jumbled mess, so much going on up there at times that i can't really think, can't really pinpoint what is going on in my head. I go silent, maybe at times dull to the world, its kind of shittay to go through times like these. I want to write, i really do, i mean in...

    Get Out Of My Head!

    I have so many stories waiting to be written shelved in my head that it's becoming quite crowded in there. The characters are fighting amongst themselves and I'm fairly certain a mass uprising is imminent. Does this revolt spell the end of my writer's block or the loss of my...

    Sort Of.

    I have a couple of stories I'm refusing to write for one reason or another, so really it's my own fault. I've been spending time searching random groups to try and find something else to write about, but no far no luck :/This story itself is kind of scraping the barrel :)

    I'm in my second year at university,

    and I study television production, and I'm pretty good at it. For my last year coming up, we have to come up with an idea for a half an hour programme, and on our first day back we have to pitch our idea to a bunch of professionals for the TV industry. Which, for a start, is...

    Stories To Tell

    I have always wanted to write a book, for a long time I thought of doing a true story, but I did not want to hurt many of those that would be in it. I have created characters for other stories and ideas, but it is like I have extreme writers block. I have also noticed that now...

    Thanks, Zoloft!

    I used to be an amazing poet and songwriter. I won awards for my writing and could write 5 good poems in less than an hour. Ever since taking and quiting anti-depepressants, my writing has been happening less and less. Now, I'm not even inspired to write like I used to be. This...

    Am I Really A Writer?

    My whole life has been filled with some amazing stories! I used to struggle a lot with reading and writing when I was young. Then I took a Latin class in high school and my excitement for words got ignited. It was always interesting to me to see how our language(English)evolved...

    I Can't Find My Words

    It seems sort of funny to have to write about not being able to write, don't ya think?  Well, at least I still have a sense of humour.  It's been a long time since I worked on my novel.  It seems that life has gotten in the way.  I was on such a roll...

    I love reading. I love writing.

    Writing a word, a phrase, or a sentence—sure. Writing a paragraph or a whole paper—unless its for school, nah. I can't even finish a single chapter. xP I've attempted so many times, but all my ideas go to waste. I've downloaded relaxing rainy mood songs (because I like...
