Can't Find The Words

What to do when bogged down with a bad case of writer's block?

  • Listen to "your songs", reminisce and hope to be inspired enough to start the ball rolling.
  • Procrastinate - do the dishes, do the laundry, unpack that box you've been meaning to since forever, watch football on TV with your other half - as long as you don't have to start writing yet.
  • Play with your kittens, wishing they can magically make the words appear.
  • Stare at your computer screen. Type, delete, retype and delete again.
  • Have a Kit Kat break.
  • Make a nice hot mug of coffee to kick start your thoughts.
  • Surf the Net.
  • Watch some tv, all the while "thinking" of what to write.
  • Give yourself a pep talk by writing in your blog.
  • Get a comforting hug from your other half.
  • Switch off the PC and pray that tomorrow by some sort of miracle, your words and thoughts will come into form and you'll meet your deadline!
