I Wish I Knew Why I Cant Write Anymore

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    I have written everything last minute,

    but that's not working anymore. I feel paralysed when I'm about to write something and I don't know why or what to do about it. Everyone says 'be regular', but that doesn't seem to work. I think I'm afraid of something, I just don't know what it is.

    I don’t know now why my thoughts

    and pen don’t co-operate. I lie awake at night and think in numbers and shades of gray. I am unable to write anymore. Everytime I sit my empty pages mock at me. Words refuse to run ,ink dries up. I just stare blank. Now I don’t dream. My passions don’t run high. I don't...

    I have been writing for ages.

    I don't even know why I started other than I enjoyed it and other people did to, which made me feel special. In any case I used to be able to write huge stories that were hundreds of pages long and extended into several books, but now I can't even seem to make it through a...

    I used to enjoy writing

    so much. I used to sit down and feel happy about doing it. Even when I was writing awfully, I was having fun. Since I've started writing I've gotten a lot better. I can't write anymore, though. After I started getting depressed I kept getting down on myself. I feel like...

    Stuck

    The words are stuck in my fingers, the rhymes lost on the tip of my tongue, and all sorts of intriguing thoughts held within my mind but somehow there is a wall between me and the paper. I sometimes get stuck and cannot create.  I can see my thoughts clearly and I know what I...

    Why Cant I Write Anymore???

    I don’t know why I can’t write anymore. Just the other day I was working on my stories like crazy, while texting my BFF (she likes to be called my agent) when I asked her to give me a list different kinds of sodas, she did and I chose one (no big deal). Well after I...

    I know exactly. My creativity died with you

    four years ago. I can't create hardly, anymore. My passion has been hindered, and you've clouded my mind and thoughts more and more, in good and wrong ways. I can hardly draw, let alone write anymore. I can barely articulate sentences as well as i did when you were alive. It...

    Sometimes

    But I don't think like I used to. I can't have an idea and just think and build it up. Most times I don't know what I'm thinking. And when I do get an idea, it's either too borrowed or just not worth it or what I'm writing becomes too obvious and autobiographical or I just can't...
