    My Muse Is Missing

    I used to write a couple of poems a week.  It's been a couple years since I had an idea for one, and it's kinda sad.  I have been told to write whether I have something to say or not, without worrying if it's any good.  That seems pretty smart.  But maybe my...

    It Comes And Goes

    During school it has been extremely trying to work up the motivation and excitement to write my book. I have little moments where all the inspiration and drive is there, but no way to write. Often times this happens while walking, or with my friend Kris who, like myself, is a...

    Hmm? What Else?

    Since the completion of my last webstory in Feb, I have not been able to come up with a new story. I have a few ideas and have been playing around with those... but nothing concrete. I know this will pass soon, but it's frustrating for now.

    Good Mood = Writer's Block?! What?

    Does anyone else have this problem? It seems that when I am the most stressed out, sick or weighed down with school work, that I have the most creative juices. When I am feeling good and the general events of life are going well (or at the least, staying out of my way), then I...

    Isn't it ironic that there are stories in this group? Just some food for thought.

    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...

    Sometimes, writing is the easiest thing in the world to me. Sometimes, inspiration comes to me when I'm on the train and I get so absorbed in my notebook I miss my stop. But when I'm actually determined to sit down and finally start that noveI I've wanted to write since I was...

    I've had this block for years. It started during my Master's. All of the sudden, I couldn't write anymore. I had to quit University and give up my Degree because I just could not bring myself to write one single thing. Whenever I try, I get extreme anxiety. It took me months to...

    Chapter Page Limit

    I have written many books and have enjoyed it, but the problem I have is not usually writer's block, but a page limit. I write my books, but my mind won't allow me to write chapters longer than three or four pages. It is very, VERY frustrating and I really wish I could get over...

    OMG

    Sadly, I have writers block. I am writing this book, and when i get so good i stop. I just cant write. Maybe it's not a block, but more of a "i can't finish this." Who knows, but i am trying to stop procrastinating and just write the freaking book. haha

    When I was younger, I wrote masterpieces (or so I thought.) I'm at the tender age of 23, and a little dusty (hoping that's all it seems to be) I haven't written poetry partly because "something" has always seemed to have held me back. I can't quite identify with it. I don't know...
