Writing Nothing

Do you ever feel like you want to write, but can’t?

You stare at the screen for ten minutes before you decide: “Well this isn’t going anywhere.” Perhaps you look up what other people wrote about online, but your mind says something along the lines of: “I can’t copy what she wrote because that’s wrong. But would people really notice if we wrote about the same thing? There’s so much out there anyways.” 

So, perhaps you think back to about two hours ago or a day ago when you had that fantastic writing idea. It’ll probably take you about another two hours of pondering before you realize that you won’t be able to remember it all. Those pins on Pinterest won’t help you remember it either. There’s also some great quotes and writing tips on Pinterest from other writers, so you have to debate about whether it’s copying again to write about the same thing.

Perhaps you can debate that what other writers say is wrong because we don’t see that enough already. You even search through all your writers notes that you leave everywhere and can’t find an original idea.

These moments have been coming more frequently lately. I’m not sure if it’s from staying in the same room a bunch or the fact my involvement in writing has gone down. Not sure. Perhaps it all could be a seasonal thing. Do I averagely write more in the warmer months?

Either way, I probably need to go on an adventure soon to get out of this broken writer mood. Might as well steal the moon, huh? (If you can’t read the sarcasm, don’t worry. The moon will be safe for you tomorrow. Not sure about the day after, but you’re good tomorrow.)

  1. What you have to keep reminding yourself is that everything there is to be written about has probably already been written about. That doesn’t mean its copying though. Its going to be unique and different, because your the one who wrote it. You can still write things and not have to give them to the world. Write for yourself first. Worry about the rest later.
