100 words: Writer's block


I've been sitting here, staring at the blank page for hours. Well, to be honest, I didn't stare at the blank page all the time; I've been tweeting and reading random articles on Wikipedia, searching for ideas.

It didn't help, obviously, since I'm writing a pointless post, and nothing's more pointless than writing about a writer’s block. But here I am, trying to write a 100 word blog post about a thing I really hate.

I hate having a writer’s block and I hate being uninspired. But at least I’m still writing and I didn’t give up; that counts, right?

    Good luck in getting the words to flow. I hate it when it happens to me.

  3. Great post!
    This is how it all starts, just start saying nothing and pretty soon you're say something.

  4. Oh how I would love to have a typewriter again and yes I know that is not what the post is about but the picture of a typewriter makes me miss the one I use to have..........I think everyone gets writers block at some point.....

  5. Writer's block can be painful; I once had a four-year long affliction of it. At least you squeezed out your 100 words. Luck on writing more.

  9. You've got a lot on your plate at the moment so try not to worry. It can be so frustrating when you want to write but can't but perhaps looking back over the blog posts you have already written might help. There is a lot of creativity there. x

  12. Sometimes writing is inspired, and sometimes it's work. Either way, when you go back and look weeks later, you often can't tell the two apart.

    :-) Keep at it!

  13. I hate that feeling!! I just had to hand in 3 essays, so I know it well! In the end you came up with a post that we can all relate to though, so great result!

  14. Good morning Starlight. Thanks for your comments. When I was very young I used to be amazed at all the stories and the knowledge older people than me had. I longed for it. Now that I am older, I understand why. It was simple. The more of life's experiences you have, the more stuff you have to write about. I often encourage the young to interact with older people.You will overcome this writers block soon.- K
