I spent all afternoon yesterday hopelessly agonizing over my writing, trying to write down anything but the words would not come.

would not come

There are times in the lives of every writer when they inevitably feel like they are not good enough, or their writing is somehow inferior or sub-par.  Writers tend to be perfectionists when it comes to their writing, myself included.

Every writer, at some point, feel a mental roadblock.  Recently, I felt such a block.  Despite my own ritualistic approach to writing, which generally starts with coffee and/or a long walk, for whatever reason, I hit a wall with my mental process.  Hard.  It took several days to recover; I was mentally spent after dealing with things I had to take care of in my own life, outside of my work.

It’s times like these when the writing just would not come.  For these times, I have created writing prompts, of which I’m likely going to begin to use for my writing.  Who knows, perhaps I’ll come up with some interesting writing…
