    that I intend to write. At this moment I should be writing a lab report, but I just can't think of anything to put! If the topic doesn't interest me, it's as if I completely disengage and then procrastinate as much as possible.

    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...

    I need to write an article

    for our project but I can't write anything. I mean, its just that I have so many ideas in my mind but I can't write any of them. Whenever I decide to write, even if its not good enough, my mind tells me that it will just go to the trash can again.

    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...

    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.
