    When can I write? about my trails

    and tribulations, triumphs and downfalls. When can I write that beautifully profound lyrics and beats again? I feel stifled as an artist and haven't completed anything in years. My friends don't even acknowledge my musical side anymore, it's been dormant and forgotten. "Do I...

    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.

    Finaly Over

    I started writing poems when I was 11 and then I shot of and wrote entire books of them. I loved it. Then 2 years ago I started getting writers block. I tried writing again but I failed miserably every time. I believe the problem was that I had no inspiration to write poems any...
