Writer's Block

    Writer's block such a dismal display; to pen and paper my thoughts cannot play.  Expression of feeling entombed within; beasts of burdens, my ideas to speak I cannot say.

        Writer's block, what is it for release that picks the lock?  A simple nudge of a long ago grudge?  Pain and sorrow, guilt or shame they are all one they are all the same.  Anger is the key that picks the lock for release.

    I am brand spankin' new here and already I am at a loss.  I write a lot of humor...well that is what I call it.  Some just call my writing confusing. What do you all do when you hit a wall?  I masturbate a lot, eat corn chips and watch "QVC ", but that isn't working anymore!  I need help!

      Just looked at your photo Hub! Had me laughing aloud! Teddy bear?? I'm sure I met you In Maryland last October! You were the guy who towered over me in Walmart when I tried to knick your parking space!  How come you needed two?

      I jest! You've got great Hubs, but I don't think you should masterbate too much - that's just for wankers! wink

    Hi pest:)

    Why don't you write a hub about your experinces of writera block!

    I bet it would be very popular from what you have already said!

    You can always check out the "Requests" or make your own requests (just up on the bar below HP title) if you have the urge to write but a tad out of sorts. smile

    It probably was to short.  I put up a poem a couple of days ago that was to short.  I think you should add a bit more to it and try again.  I bet it would do well.

    I've had writer 's block lately. I've stared about 6 articles and haven't been able to finish any.

    I'm also working on paying articles sites and graphic design. maybe I'm over extended?

    Hopefully I can "unblock" myself soon.hmm
    anyone have some suggestions?

    I have had writer's block a few times since coming here.  Don't worry about it too much.  It goes away.  If your poem was too short, try including some information about it.  Like how you felt, what inspired you to write it.  Like, "I have had writer's block, and I am frustrated about it all.  I can't write, so I wrote this poem."  Sometimes the only cure for writer's block is to keep writing, even if it isn't what you want to write.  I know that doesn't make a lot of sense, but think about it.  If you just take a pen and a piece of paper and just write down anything and everything that pops into your head, no matter what it is, it gives you some focus, and practice for getting those good ideas out onto paper, or computer.  Even if it sound stupid.  I have done it, and it helps.  I sat down one day, with no ideas in my head for a few days about what to write about, and just sat there with a pen and note pad.  I wrote down every thought that popped into my head.  It looked something like this...

    This is stupid.  I am never going to get anywhere this way.  Why can't I think?  It can't be this hard to write SOMETHING!  I'm hungry.  I wonder if we have any chicken?  I want a sandwich.  I miss being on my computer. 
    And it just went on and on.  It helped me think, and it helped me by giving me some practice getting my thoughts out of my head.  It helped me clear my head a little, giving me more room to think straight.
