So I am having the worst writers’ block right now. I am trying to find more interesting things to talk or write about. I thought about doing a podcast, thinking it would be a new and interesting way to talk about health, but I have even run into some issues there. I was so excited about it but a recording of said podcasts has not come as easily as I thought. And even now, writing is becoming a problem.
I don’t know if my writer’s block is because of any personal events I may be experiencing or if it is simply a common case of writer’s block. I just can not seem to focus on any topics that I want to write about. The topics I have ideas for don’t seem to be the problem, or at least I don’t think they are. Typically whenever I have an idea on a topic, I research the topic that I want to write about. Then, I put what I have learned into my own words. But that is where the problem lies. I can’t seem to focus enough to formulate my own words. And it is becoming frustrating. I know that taking a break can help get through writer’s block but I have been struggling with this for a few weeks now.
Whenever I get writer’s block, I usually go do something that helps clear my mind. Sometimes, it is doing something like housework; cleaning the house or dishes. Other times, I have gone for a run to clear my mind. But this time, I can not seem to shake it. I have so many drafts that I have started but can’t seem to finish one. I don’t believe that it is because of any “outside distractions” but maybe I do. And I just don’t see them as distractions. So I thought if I wrote about writer’s block, then maybe it would help me get out of my writer’s block.
Creativity has always come naturally to me, but not so much in nowadays. I have no intention of giving up on this. I look at my site as if it is about my own personal health and quitting would be that I would be giving up on my own health. So quitting is not an option. That is one thing I can say that I am not very good at, is quitting. Even when I should have quit, I have stubbornly kept going. Somehow, it always worked out. But I am just very frustrated and have now resorted to ‘venting.’
I don’t know if there are any writers out there who might have any tips on what got them out of their own block, but I am completely blocked from all creativity. Let me know what has personally worked for you. And to all of my readers, I will be getting back to my regular writing schedule on Mondays and Fridays…hopefully sooner rather than later. Thanks for reading and check out me out on Instagram or Twitter, too.
