Writer’s Block Party
When was the last time you experienced writer’s block? What do you think brought it about — and how did you dig your way out of it?
I can write these prompts every day, no problem. I can easily write my other blog’s posts daily, no problem. The format is set for me, and I’m getting more and more traffic on both my blogs, so I feel pretty confident about doing prompts and daily posts.
Where I’m stuck, then, is on this book I’ve had swimming around in the bottomless sea of my brain for several years. Maybe someone needs to give me an assignment each day so I have some accountability. Maybe it’s my fear of failure or, even more scarey, success, that keeps me from moving forward. I know what I want to say. I just don’t seem to be able to pull my chair up to my computer desk and commence to saying it.
Maybe it’s the size of the undertaking. Maybe it’s because I know before I start that my audience will be a targeted one, not the general public but those who have the same interest in spiritual things that I do. Maybe I’m just a procrastinater. Maybe I’m just scared. Maybe I really DON’T have anything of interest to say. Maybe it’s all been said before.
Whatever the maybe may be, I’m stuck. I THINK I want to be unstuck, but maybe I really don’t. Maybe I’m just to lazy to put in the concentrated effort.
I just don’t know.
