Writer’s Block

What is writer’s block?

Some times, I sit outside, in the car, waiting at the doctor’s office, etc., and imagine scenarios for the book I’m writing, or an idea formulating in my mind. When I sit down to put onto paper what was running unheeded in my head, I have nothing to put down. This happened a few days ago and it made me wonder; is writer’s block when you can’t think of anything to write, or when you can’t form into sentences and paragraphs the scenarios in your head.

So, what is to be done? Do you sit in front of your computer staring blankly at the sheet in front of you, shut everything down and walk away, type randomly and hope that something triggers your spark of ingenuity, or bang your head against the keyboard until both you and your computer are senseless?

What do you consider writer’s block and what do you do to get over it?

Aw Shucks

Some days life is easy. I really like easy days. An easy day doesn’t mean it’s a lazy day, nor does it mean that you have nothing to do, it just means that everything runs smoothly-no one cuts you off on, or off, the freeway. You don’t have to play vulture in the parking lot and find a parking space right away. You find everything you need at the store without searching high and low, and none of the check out lines are incredibly long, or else the cashier rings everyone up in front of you without a hitch.

Although you wait an hour for your turn in the Dr.’s office, the people and conversations are interesting and you don’t mind the wait.

Everyone sits around the table talking pleasantly, and even though the disputes get hot and heavy, they are resolved quickly and everyone is smiling and enjoying themselves once more.

-Yep, I really like the easy days.
