Writer’s Block

a blockage of the mind

By angela hepworthPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

Emptiness fills every orifice of my hollow mind

Clenching a pen and staring down at my paper

Lapses of time pass by like fleeting memories

It seems impossible that I ever had any ideas at all, or that I ever

Put anything worthwhile to paper in my life

Separation between brain and mind and heart

Eats me alive, and I end up writing nothing at all


What do you guys do to inspire you during times when writer’s block hits you hard? I’ve been struggling with it quite a bit this past week. It’s the absolute worst, isn’t it?

Thanks for reading!

    I had to change that Nice work to Outstanding cuz this was. You described exactly the way I feel each time I sit to write and there’s nothing. Especially the line It seems impossible that I ever had any ideas at all

    I don't ever worry about a "block." Sometimes my soul just needs a rest, or my body just needs to do something different, like gardening. Inspiration comes when it comes. Until then, do challenges and prompts :) Nice eclipse one

  • I only write when I have the urge to. That way, it's easier to get the words flowing. I agree with Heather below. Don't force yourself to write. Sending you lots of love and hugs ❤️

    Great entry! If you're having blocks, don't try to force anything. Give yourself some time by doing other things you enjoy. At least that's what I do. 😊
