Writer’s Block

First off, I have writer’s block. For years, I was able to sit down at a keyboard or hold a pen. Words flowed out. I covered a variety of topics, from entertaining tips, to proper behavior as a communications person. Lately I find myself writing instructions and functional pieces. How to type. How to start your own business. How to utilize an iPad. Great topics. I enjoyed writing these functional pieces. I did. But now I find myself struggling to write creatively.

Cue the Jaws theme music. Enter writer’s block.

I’m stuck writing conversations and writing without heart. I decided to write about my experience with writer’s block. No doubt writer’s block will strike again. I’ll find myself unable to write quality pieces.

But right now, sitting down at the keyboard doesn’t feel as overwhelming as I expected. Words flow out of my fingertips, onto the keyboard. It feels like a friend has returned.

Welcome back words. Welcome back. I’d hug you if I could. I’ve missed you.
