I Have Extreme Writers Block

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I have mild depression

    and I haven't been doing the things that I like to do (i.e. writing). I can feel a story brewing in me but I feel like my sadness and apathy is suppressing my creativity! It's so frustrating! Writing is therapeutic and yet, I feel so gloomy and uninspired!

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
