Just nothing

Wow, I have a super bad case of extreme writers block. I want to write, I faithfully read my bloggerville favs...and I sit down to write my own...and my brain fills with white static...Kinda like white noise...or maybe its the voices in there arguing! Anyways, now that I sound crazy...

My boss apologized to me today, not a flippant apology, but a real sincere apology. It was nice and very unexpected. He has been under some stress and over the last week took it out on me...I was hurt, but kept it to myself. I knew he was under some really bad pressure and probably just needed to vent...Well the apology was great. I am glad that I did let the whole situation roll off my back.

I have been doing some soul searching...some looking at me on the inside. I don't know yet what I am finding. One thing I read time and time again are people on here trying to grow and better themselves...I to want to continue to grow and learn.

I think that when you stop striving, to grow and learn...that is when you begin to die...

Hummmmm, more to think on

I liked the white noise description of writer's block. Well said!

"I think that when you stop striving, to grow and learn...that is when you begin to die..."

Not only that but science has proven that it is bad for your brain.

Whim- my great grandma lived to be 103, she was one who said she never wanted to grow old, stop dancing, or quit learning!

If you look deep enough on the inside. I'm sure you will find guts and bones and stuff.

I'd say you did really well for having writer's block. I like the self-discovery thing about blogging too, but we can't be expected to make a major discovery every day, can we? When I have writer's block, I shamelessly steal ideas. I'm sneaky that way. ;p

I think stress is the number one contributor to writer's block. It is for me anyway. Just say no to stress!

I get writer's block all the time. You can do two things: push through it and write whatever comes to mind, be it gospel or garbage--or you can just take a break. Both have worked well for me.

Gosh, I couln't agree with you more. I don't write enough to get writers' block, but I get 'blocked' in other ways...which is why I am probably so scattered. When I get to a stump on one project, I move on to the next for a spell. When your block passes, you'll probably be flooded, so flooded that you fingers will struggle to keep up with your mind.

Just got a minute, but wanted to stop in and say thanks for the lovely comments about the tournament!

Hope to get to catch up this weekend. LOL

I agree with Corky on the stress causing writers block. And I've found that the harder I try to think of something to write about the fewer ideas I can come up with.

Well it would seem I have gotten past my writers block.

I know many many people who do not grow and learn. To them, every day is Ground Hogs day. Of course, I'm talking about the prisoners I see on a daily basis.
