Writing Prompt: Breaking up with Writers Block

When I decided to get back into writing, and working on my webpage I decided that I needed to have small goals and to make myself find time to write those small goals before going back to my long stories. Being able to complete something is a wonderful feeling and I enjoy these writing prompts more than I thought I would. When I signed up with Writers Digest they sent me a few pages from their book A Year of Writing Prompts and this one comes from that book. Usually I get mine from their page  Writers Digest  I hope you all have been enjoying reading them as much as I have been having writing them. They have forced me to think about things in different ways, like my last writing prompt “Everybody knows your name”  I look forward to thinking more outside the box with them and to getting into a regular writing routine so that I can get my longer stories finished and published.

Writing Prompt: Breaking up with writers block

It’s time for you and Writer’s Block to part ways. Write a letter breaking up with Writer’s Block, starting out with, “Dear Writer’s Block, it’s not you, it’s me … .”

 

Dear Writers Block,

It’s not you it’s me. I need to continue with my stories. I distract myself with other things then blame you for my lack of progress. I know that is not fair to you. I need to break up with you, stop blaming you for everything.

Because of you I have enjoyed many things, thigs that I can no use within my writing. I’ve gone for walks in the woods, visited the ocean, put puzzles together, binge watched shows, and read many, many books. You have been good to me, Writers Block, but now I must let you go.

I have a responsibility to my readers and to my characters to finish my stories. They deserve an ending and to be read by many people who will love them as much as I do.

I’m afraid I am weak, that this isn’t our final goodbye that I’ll come back to you. If it do, it will only end in heart ache. We are not meant to be. I am meant to write and you are meant to stop writing. I will miss the time we spent together.

I’m certain you will find another writer to spend time with, though I’m sure your time with them will also end. I wish you well and hope I do not see you again. Though you are fun, you are equally frustrating. Thank you for helping me experience more of life. I must get back to writing now.

Forever worried and thinking about you,

Megan

Welcome!

Just wanted to pop in and give a big welcome to all the new followers via Bloglovin. If you are a blogger and have not heard of this site it really is a great place to have your blog. All you need to do is sign up register your blog and put a widget on your page so people can follow it through that site instead of by email or wordpress. You are able to follow all different kinds of blog sites, like Blogger.com or wordpress.com and it put them in a nice order for you. You don’t get an over whelming amount of mail in your inbox telling you there is a new post from your favorite blogs you just log in and see who has posted something new. There is also an app for it lol

I have unfortunately not  been writing much lately. I go through slumps sometimes that I want to write but can’t really get it going. I usually go back and read through all my old stories I’ve written. I might just need to get a new book and take a brake for a day or two and read someone else’s writing though. That sometimes helps too. I think I get tired of not having an ending. I have at least 10 different stories that are in different stages of writing but none have endings yet. We shall see what happens next. As they say… this too shall pass. 🙂 Well hope everyone had a good month this last month when I wasn’t posting.

Any of you writers have trouble as I am having now or am I alone with these ups and downs of writing genius? lol
