    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...

    For Years Now...

    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...

    The Muse is a fickle lover.   When she’s into you, oh boy, it’s a wild ride. You’ll never have more fun in your life (sitting at a keyboard, that is)   Every once in awhile, however, she gets into these moods. One day you come to bed and she has...

    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.

    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

    Looking For Beta Testers For My Writers Block Course

    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...

    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...

    I have writer's block.

    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...
