‘The Block’. Not featuring Waz & Gav, but my brain.

writers-blockIn my perfect world my job title would be writer. Ok it would actually be “mum”, but for all intents and purposes today I would like it to be writer.

So I’m a writer with writer’s block. Well writer’s block on anything other than having writer’s block. Are you following?

Since starting this blog back at the beginning of the year this is only the second time I have experienced The Block. I have opinion’s on anything and everything sure, but sometimes I can’t seem to find the part of my brain that tells my fingers what to type and how to get those damn words out of my head.

And so I thought I would share with you that frustration, because well, at the moment I ain’t got nothing else to write!

It’s quite a strange feeling, not being able to sit down and bash out a rant via the keyboard. I get frustrated and a little bit ancy really. Like a professional althete who needs to go for a run, or an artist who can’t think of anything to draw. It’s like I’ve lost my writing mojo! And trying desperately to think of something to write, only makes things worse.

So why does this happen? Well I’m not quite sure actually, it could be a range of things. From deciding to take on a different role with different hours at work, to trying to organise flights and things for our overseas trip, my brain has been full of my own goings on that I’ve forgotten to take in the outside world and all that has been happening!

So one can only hope that this is a temporary block that will soon be unblocked in a non sewerage kinda way.

    Getting angry is a great way to get the juices flowing.

    Funnily enough I found it easier to write when I was a man-hating singleton than a happily married woman…

    Admittedly I wrote a lot about how much I despised men until I met the perfect one for me.

    Now, I just save everyone the smultz and keep my “I’m so happily in love blogs to myself” as much as possible :)
