When you’re writing juices are all dried up

Updated on March 21, 2012

OH What to write!

Source

As an author and a poet


As I write and write then one day I stop. Then I think… Is there anything else to write about?

The stories and plots and characters run through my mind, through my dreams through my daylight hours all demanding to be written down on paper. Unfortunately sometimes that is not the case. You sit looking at a blank piece of paper or a blank screen on your laptop and if you are like me then you go blank.

The writing process from beginning “To End,” while enjoyable it is in many ways can be quite excruciating.

While laboring over my writing project and struggling with what I wanted to say or write I closed my eyes and said ‘Lord, help me today. I really need your guiding hand and your wisdom because I have no idea what to write about.’

That’s when it came to me God was a little amused with my writers block. Gently He reminded me He was the creator of writing, His written word. He is the creator of all words.

You turned the water into wine

His mind is the most brilliant


His thoughts the most deepest….. His creativity the most original and the most amazing…He delights in sharing with me.

I don’t know if I will write my best piece this day but I realized I needed to make sure my heart is grateful for what He gives me this day.

Oh Lord, I say to you

Help me write

To YOU this day

My words I write

To show YOUR love

You cause it to bloom

In Your perfect time

Thank you God

Please

Please help this lowly writer

Please help me

This day

What Do I Write?

Source

So as I sit at my laptop today


I look towards the Heavenly realm and I realized that MY God is greater than anything in this world or universe and I do not feel alone. That I will just write and I will dream of things to come.

It is written in the stars.

So Enjoy


Please enjoy this beautiful violin solo and start dreaming and laughing and loving life.

Me Behind the tree

Be Blessed


I guess I need to get from behind that tree and start writing,

Be Blessed

Debbie

      Lol! Debbie,

      You did take us to the gates of Heaven with this inspiration. But we were deny the entrance, since we weren't...or didn't have an appointment for today. Just take one day at a time and rest that mind. Music, good food and a nice walk, will help you more than you thought...

      LORD

      Absolutely beautiful Deborah. You really have a God-given talent my dear friend. God gives us inspiration to write because he was the first to do so. I'm so glad you got out from behind the tree & started writing. LOL

      I'm truly feeling blessed after this reminder. If the words flow freely, God put them in our head. Prayers do ease writer's block as well as any other problem we have.

      Hi Debbie, Voted UP! Yes, Writer's Block is just awful! Thank you for the reminder that God is truly the writer, letting His words flow through us. I call them "God flashes."

      A great hub Debbie. I think we all feel like that some days and then I wonder is God telling me that it might be time to take a break? A drive to the beach to blow away the cobwebs, a walk in the hills to enjoy His creation - it really helps and then we can come back refreshed. Thanks for expressing what I'm sure we all feel - occasionally or often!
