I Have Writer's Block

For the poor unfortunate sufferers of a cruel mental state 240 People

    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.

    It creeps up on me at the worst times,

    like when I have two essays due this week. Like when I'm awake in the early morning hours with a migraine, and a lump in my throat, like I want to cry, but something's holding me back. Something's always holding me back.

    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...

    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...
