Embarrassingly, it seems I’ve been facing a lot of slumps and blocks. As I continue to battle this reading slump (I’m slowly managing to get a few pages each time I manage to read)…I’ve seem to have come face to face with a completely different sort of slump…rather I’d call this a block.I’m having a creativity block…it doesn’t seem to matter what I’m doing be it graphics, arts & crafts, thinking up blog post ideas, reading or even at work (not that my job requires a lot of creativity)…I feel blocked – stuffed up…blanked out.
Since this is a book blog I’ll just keep this to bookish things…so lets call this a “writer’s block“.
It’s gotten bad that even coming up with the ability to write posts for this blog has been difficult. For example this week’s TTT, which was a FREEBIE – how was this even difficult to write? I could have just taken from the list of topics which I’ve not written before, but none of them seem to jump out and me and scream “pick me! pick me!” everything just seems like a wall blocking my thoughts from flowing.
I’ll be traveling next week after this trip it will be another few months before I travel again, so will have to make the most out of it. Although, I’ve noticed after this past long break, that it takes me a while to get back into the rhythm of blogging when I get back. It is bothering me a little.
I’ve been told to just keep writing; to just keep the ideas flowing, but what happens when you draw a blank? It isn’t as though I’ve written all that many posts or discussion posts (I don’t think I’ve written one of those before) or creative posts before, so the well of thoughts shouldn’t have drained out. I’ve barely even started blogging…
Has anyone else had this trouble before? If you have, how did you get over it? I say this while I’m still battling my reading slump…somehow it feels they’re both connected…if this slump manages to dissolve, perhaps the writing flow would return?
