Writer's Block. (Monday Moments #12)

(Source)
         After blogging consistently for 6 weeks, she couldn't think of writing anything. She was proud of her work so far. Sometimes she took a topic and elaborated on it in an effortless manner. At other times, interesting topics just came to her wanting her attention. She hadn't decided on going on a writing-every-day streak. It just happened. She would review fantastic restaurants having a variety of food. She mastered the art of traveling and shared some effective tips about it. She also shared her motherhood diaries. These three topics; reviews, travel and motherhood were her forte. She could write about them diligently without having to fake anything. She never posted just for the sake of it. It always came from her heart. But that day, as she sat facing the blank screen, unable to think, she surprised herself. If she faced such blankness, she'd start typing something which eventually turned out to be good. But not this time. She thought and thought but it lead to a dead end. She doubted herself. She was trying hard to not believe that it was just the beginning spark. Her pessimistic side was taking control of her when she gave up. After all this time, she was in a writer's block. She always thought of it as some made-up phenomenon because she never experienced it. But that moment, as her confusion took the name of writer's block, she was shocked. At that moment, she surrendered herself to this sick place where she could neither think nor write. At that moment, she was overwhelmed of the whole situation she was facing and hoped she would be out of it soon. As she shut down her laptop and headed to make some coffee, she started envisioning writer's block from all the angles. That was her moment of blank space.

I'll be writing on how she overcame her writer's block on next Monday!

(‘Monday Moments’ is a blog series wherein I write about an incident or a moment in a short paragraph. It’s not a story, but just a short description to express and explore the most common joys and also the uncommon miseries.)

  2. Oh for sure that happens! I go though creative streaks too and then poof - nothing at all! I find that a change of pace helps, go do something different and maybe that will inspire. Good luck!!

  12. As a blogger who has her fair share of deadlines, it's really inconvenient when I hit that brick wall of writer's block. But sometimes you do have to walk away and shift your focus to get the words back again. Great post!
