    Block Head

    I wanted to write since about sixth grade.  I didn't do anything with it until collage, many years later.  I had to take composition classes, and I loved them. Outside of collage, I wrote some poetry, and a few short stories.  Time was my biggest enemy for a while...

    Um, So Where Was I Again?

    It takes me forever to compose my thoughts onto the page. Whenever I have writing assignments I sit down for hours trying to compile my ideas into expository or creative writing. Every time I get stuck I am vulnerable to the slightest distraction, which in turn makes my flow of...

    F***ing Sucks!!!

    I've been suffering writers block for a while, and have not been able to finish any of my short stories, and now I can't even write any new songs and poems. It is really aggravating when I am unable to create things I enjoy simply because my mind is drawing up blanks. I've been...

    I've been having the worst writers block as of late. I have three stories I'd planned out and want to start on, but every time I go to put pen on paper the words are not there. I know what I want to say, but my mind goes blank. And the worst thing about having writers block right...

    5 Years

    I've had writer's block for roughly 5 years now. I think it's because of the bad thing's that have happened to me in that time, making me bitter and burnt out. When I'm over it, truly, completely...that's the day I'll write again.

    Refusal

    I normally hate it when I'm working on a story

    and suddenly everything I had imagined and just shuts down and stops working. It annoys me completely, I wish I could the story that I've been wanting to write. It's pretty annoying.. I wish there was something invented that could unblock writers block.

    The flashing of the cursor is the worst part.

    Always mocking when a writer has lack of ideas. It never fails to make me hate it as it mocks me while writer’s block overtakes me. But why must I deal with such frustration? The cursor knows that I am bored of seeing it always flashing, always mocking. It knows that I wish it...
