Writer's Block Get Away From Me...!


Sometimes I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Make it more dramatic: Felt as though I was on a plane, and heard the Captain announcing: "Ladies and Gentleman, we have lost thrust and both turbines are shut (37,000 feet above sea level?). Entering a phugoid cycle right now..! We want you to pray.. and if you don't know how, you "better learn right now!" What the...!

Some people inquire or ask, "what do we do on weekends?" Really depends. We work, go out, write, or listen to music. Today we just have that writer's block illness. So we decided to write a little piece of poetry. No more sultry poetry for now, because we know our friends reactions already. Even moderators took their time reading them. LOL! Here we go: have this clear, we don't even know how this poem is going to end. "Flight attendants GET BACK TO YOUR SEATS and get ready for massive turbulence..!"

Enjoy this piece with our favorite melody--Thanks A-HA!!

Writer's block get away from me

I didn't marry a word or two, can't you see?

Would you mind brushing your teeth

I hear you mumbling word that I really do not need.

You follow me to the bathroom and make fun of my brain

you even have the nerve to lift that toilet seat in vain

Not that I'm married and have to abide by some lady's rules

Now we both brush our teeth together, how fool!

Writers block stop inspiring words that not make sense

first paragraph about dangerous drive shooting revenge

second paragraph about some math that we hate so bad

finally deleting the whole hub, aren't you glad?

please, please stop pulling my ears would you?

Enough of not having inspiration out of the blues

you always hunt us with mental threats in vain

See? I didn't publish this piece and score went down again

Writers block!! Who is your mom's name, so I can... never mind!

get out and get away! Would you be so kind?

Was that you that turned off my alarm clock?

waking up late and barely concocting any thought.

Once and for all leave us alone!

...I guess you are already gone

I wrote this piece with so much fun

next time I will ignore you blatantly,

disposing of you into that trash can...!

Joseph, loved your glib poem on on the topic of Writer's Block. I have read a few different articles on this topic over the last few days, but quite enjoyed your poetic take on it. Must tell you I had it a bit earlier in the week, but seem to have rebounded, but seriously when it rears its ugly head I agree that I wish it would go away quickly. Loved this one though and have voted and shared too!!

Me too, I am in the same desolate boat with you, lord. Blank, blank, blank. I believe your brain is telling you that you may just need a little break and not think about "having" to write, and then you will recover with stellar results. Go out and do something you haven't done in a while and maybe that will provide inspiration. Just letting you know, you are not alone. Actually, I am in the midst of writing one, but it is one of those deep ones, so I am in no hurry to just rush through it. God bless. Enjoy and relax on this day of rest. That may be what the Lord is telling you and me, that we are to rest today and enjoy just being in the stillness and silence of the day. Take a nice afternoon nap! God Bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Not sure what is worse, having writer's block or having too many ideas at once and not having the time to write about them. Very cute. I like how you humanzied writer's block.

If one "writes", it's never far away. Just letting it be & focusing elsewhere lets it return to the forefront on its own terms, which are usually the ones that produce good stuff. Certainly putting the pen to paper (figuratively) can stir it too. And often those things written at such moments are really hilarious! Once I started one, "My hair is fuzzy, I feel frumpy . . ." so you can imagine how stuck I was, except that it did express my real feelings! haha

I have never had this problem. I can look at a blade of grass blowing and get an idea, in fact I did this very morning, but will I have time to see where that was leading? Probably not. Try setting yourself up some chores and see if that does it. lol

A fun read.

I'm with Tammy on this subject. I went to the mountain today for a hike and all the way up and all the way back I was thinking of hubs to write....now, if I can add twelve hours to each day I'll be in good shape.

Loved your amusing look at Writer's Block....as always my friend, you do a remarkable job.

This is a common malady among all of us, I think! I have it often. This was a fun read, Lord!

I can't imagine you with Writer's Block! Your brain must run full throttle 24 hours a day to be as creative as you are!

I voted this Hub UP etc.

@Faiith Reaper, we will fine and we did follow your advice. Honestly time flies in here. Thanks for being that sister in Christ. God bless for your continuos suport. We always get happier with your wonderful comments!

@ Lathing, you are bad! Can't we write about anything after all? I did have a bad morning , and by midday I was writing this piece. But I was on time to get it publish, before going out. Thanks for your fun feedback!

Tammy we can humanize words and senses...and we love seeing people smile. Is like a two way street. Thanks my friend. Hope to see and read another hub of yours! Congrats for those 100,000 views!

@Nellyanna, Lol! that "My hair is fuzzy, I feel frumpy . . " must've taken you to another level of creativity. We did start this poem out of a ranting, being just hanging around with no ideas. Thanks so much for commenting!

Hi Polly, along you came on time. I understand your view, but there are moments.. and more moments when we feel with no inspiration. Woke up 8a.m. and was just readind some hubs, and just starting to write this piece... with no words but a title. Thansk for stopping by! loved that comment of yours!

Hi Debbie! Your visit is much appreciated and expected. You just take your time and we know how it is. Just praying for your dad's return. Glad to see you reading us after all!

@Thanks for the surrpise surprise Billy. We all need a break every now and then, and hope to see you tomorrow renewed in your productivity. We are behind your series and your positive writing. Thanks my friend!

@Hi Julie DeNeen, Lol! Tell me about it. I think we slowdown on weekends, like our readers. Sunday is just a critical day for us. I guess was instilled in us since childhood, when we had to listen to our parents and do different chores to catch up with a manic monday morning.

@Thanks to you Josh! You always keep up with us, and seems that you already got used to keep a steady pacing in your writing. Take care my friend!

@Mary615, we do our best! We are as human as anyone. We did go out for a while and came back freash as a lettuce. Your hubs are fun, and we always check on you. I suspect you left your heart in Puerto Rico.

@KJfroce. Lol! What's your take on that? Sitll laughing at that fun hub of Yours about plagiarism. I cannot imagine without sarcasm. What a Force from your words! Gee!

lol Looks like even with writers block the words just flow out. If that's writers block then when it goes away the dam will break and goodness knows how many hubs will flow out. Voted up and funny.

Oh how well we know thee Writer's Block! A while back I wrote a poem, "When You Can't Write"...seems sometimes writing is best when you can't write...your poem is a perfect, amusing example of that! You take us face to face with writer's block then leave writer's block in the 'garbage'. So nicely done and such a nice read we can all relate to and enjoy!

Voted up, useful, funny, and awesome. (I'm going to link this to my above mentioned poem.)

Awesome way of presenting the problem of writers being blocked from writing, it is sometimes very difficult to put pen to paper, somehow the mind feels low

DDE, there are days when we think we ran out of ideas, and suddenly they come like pouring pieces of energy. Thanks for stopping by. All we can do is walk away for a few hours and come back with a sharper edge.
