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

– Excerpt from my writing notebook, July 28, 2014 @ 11:00 AM.

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…
