First case of writer’s block

Christmas to July 2012 075Have you noticed that I haven’t posted for almost a whole week?

There are currently ten drafts in my posts category. Some are completely written, I’m just not happy with them. So I guess it’s more accurate to say a case of editor’s block.

I wanted to post something, so I just decided to blurt out what’s going on. I typically only write a few nights a week anyways and it normally comes very easy. However, even though I spent the same amount of time with blogging this week, I just wasn’t happy with the state of what I had. The posts that are written just aren’t right or complete or something, and there is no motivation to write out the rest of the ideas. See, even that sentence was hard to write and reads awkwardly.

So I ask you, what do you do when you have writer’s block?

Let me once again specify: I am not having trouble coming up with ideas of what to write. I am an idea factory. I cannot imagine running out of ideas (and I would know, I’ve been blogging for three months now = ).

I am having trouble making my drafts ready to publish, and I am having trouble being motivated to write about topics that I am genuinely excited about.

Does this ever happen to you? What do you do, if anything, about it?

Looking forward to some fun responses. I’m not taking this too seriously, actually. I just thought it would be fun to post about what’s going on.

Hope that anyone who is a dear enough to read this has a lovely week.

Egh, I just proofread this and whatever is the matter is still plaguing me; sorry for a rough read. 

One thought on “First case of writer’s block

  1. Just keep writing, just keep writing! 🙂 That’s what I’ve always heard. You’ll get back into your groove. Don’t be too perfectionistic. Just do your best and post it (or not, but keep writing!), and eventually, you’ll come out of your slump. I haven’t hit that yet–to my knowledge haha–but I haven’t been writing long. My issue is a time slump. Where’s the time?! 😉
