Blah. . . .

So, here's the thing. . .

I want to blog. I really do. I sit down daily to write a post. I get the kids situated for 10 minutes.  I get out the laptop. I get all comfy. And then I sit, staring at the screen.

It's terrible.

Does this ever happen to you?  You want to write, but simply just can't?

What do you do about it?

It has absolutely happened. Give it a few days. Inspiration will strike you and then you'll feel like writing again. My blog has been idle for weeks before because I just didn't have anything to say. But my desire to write always comes back. I'm sure yours will too.

Yes-it happens often. I have just decided to wait to something happens that makes me want to write. Hence the long gaps often seen between my posts:)

found you on the casual blogger. and i can definitely relate to this problem. "the block" usually hits right about the minute that i actually have time to blog. any time that things are going nutso though, i can compose the best posts in the world in my head. this is why there are sometimes a good week or two gap in my posting schedule!! sometimes i just need to sit back and reboot. i look forward to reading more on your blog :)

It's happened to me a whole lot recently. I've read a few books with characters who turn to their writing and I want to do that. Sometimes I turn poetic and eloquent in my thoughts, but the mood is always dead before I get to the computer.

Big help, right?!

I go running, or I read until something sparks me. And I give myself time. No rushing the good stuff!

that is a tough one........sometimes it just feels like nothing is there to share.

do you use your blog as your own journal??
do it for you
you may just be surprised at how someone THAT particular day will really be able to relate

When I first started blogging what seems like eons ago, sometimes it took me a while to think of something to write but today I never run out of things to write. Good luck! Something will come to mind for you. It always does.

I am in it right now. And I have been just pushing myself for posts. I sometimes wait til the next day (I like to write the night before) so that my mind is more clear and fresh. Sometimes that helps. We all go through it.
