Coming Up With Blanks

With so many things in my mind, you would think that it would be easy to come up with something to write about, but thing is my mind is coming up with.. blanks!


I want to write a story but my mind refuses to start at the beginning and it's in the middle with the story already in chaos...

I want to write a thought about a particular topic but my mind is refusing to form the correct words so I can impart properly what I want to say

I want to write about my life but with so many things that's been happening I don't know which ones to write about...

Isn't that crazy?

I feel silly, I've been writing for most of my life and when it matters, when I know I need to, so that I can proceed with my plans my mind refuses to cooperate. I don't want to write just blah-blah regarding all those things just to say that I've written something, I don't want a rant about life, I want to keep things in the positive light but sometimes, well, it seems now, most of the time words escape me...

I blame it on burnout, writing too much too soon, writing for others and not really letting my creative juices flow, just because that's how it is when you need to write for pay...

Well, I just hope that one day soon, this lull would end and my writing would once again commence.. My plans are set and just waiting for everything else to catch up.. I'm hoping it will be soon and I can shower you with all the creativity that is in me...

I can guess what your teachers had been telling you years ago. They must have asked you to FOCUS, PAY ATTENTION and CONCENTRATE.

It happens to the best of us. Best thing to do is just write, write, and then write some more. Even if it isn't a comprehensible piece at the start, it will all come together and you'll find yourself with a great piece already.

Well now, see- you just put something down. Who's to say what's creative and what's not? At least you wrote something. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece, like allen0187 said, as long as you got something down. It's like exercising- you just keep it up and some day you'll see great results.

Start writing just where you are, in the middle, at the end, it doesn't matter. Just write. Try this;

That is called a writer's block. Cool it. You will soon get over and will be flooded with ideas.
