I am currently suffering from writer's block. Or as I like to call it, "mental constipation". I have the urge to write, but no specific ideas on what to write about. As much as I want it to, nothing comes out. Unfortunately they don't have Ex-Lax or Colace for the brain. I just want to get all the words out that are just clogged up in there.
Boy this got graphic quickly...
Do you ever experience a total writer's block? Have you often gone for long periods of time without writing? I once went several years without writing, and now again find it cathartic...but have reached a point where its been so long since I wrote regularly that when I sit to write regularly, I find it challenging.
How have you been able to overcome your writer's block? Do you have any tricks or tips or exercises that you feel have helped get you back on track? There are some people who believe that writer's block is simply a myth to cover laziness. Do you agree with that?
I would like to hear some comments and suggestions, not only to help me get back in the flow of things if you will, but also because I like to know that I am not alone when it comes to this. I want to hear your advice!
