The Pain of Writer’s Block

What does it feel like to have writer’s block?

The blank page is mocking me:
You call yourself a writer, yet there is not one word on my surface.  You are a loser.

My mind feels as blank as the page.  Maybe the creative section of my brain went on a vacation without telling me.

How do you break free from writer’s block?

The best way to break free from this misery is to start writing.

  • Write whatever comes to your mind
  • Write random words
  • Make a list (favorite books, people you know, childhood memories, things you need to buy at the store)
  • Describe something you can see.  Write about how it looks, feels, or is used.

Writing is the best way to smash through a writer’s block.


Scotty McCreery Concert

Mom is a Scotty McCreery fan, so she bought tickets for all of us to go to his concert.

For several weeks preceding the concert, she gave me strict instructions not to do any stunts or activities that might result in injury.

Actually she said, “Don’t do anything stupid.”

Anyway, I managed to not injure myself this week and we all went to the concert.  Everyone had a great time.

Scotty McCreery is an excellent singer and performer.
