Everyone has had it whether you like it or not (I personally hate it). No, it’s not the flu. It’s that moment when you’re in a black hole of blankness when you’re writing. Ugh it’s so annoying. It’s like you’re dying but you’re not. Getting writer’s block is the worst!
A reason why getting writer’s block is the worst is that you can get so stressed out. I was thinking about what to write for my blog and I couldn’t think of anything. I was so stressed and tense. I then somehow thought of this idea after ten minutes of writer’s block. But what is writer’s block? It’s the condition of being unable to think about what to write or to how to proceed with writing. Stress can also be the first sign of getting a heart attack or high blood pressure. Unfortunately there is no way to stop writer’s block, but you can prevent some of its powerful damage. That is why it’s the worst. Stress is also a very important thing to control. If you can’t control it then you need to take a deep breath and count to ten. Famous writers and poets all had writer’s block. Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, and Mark Twain. I could go on and on for weeks. Stress can make writer’s block seem the worst. Just don’t deem it the worst and you’ll be ok.
Although stress can make writer’s block so frustrating, there is another horrible thing that contributes it to make it seem like absolute madness. The boredom from it makes it horrible. You’re just thinking… and thinking… and thinking… and thinking. On and on, yet you can’t just get an idea. I mean why can’t I think of something? It’s just very annoying and untolerable. Tick, tock, tick, tock, goes the clock. Seconds, by minutes, by hours you’re just wasting. How can it be fun wasting time? Just please tell me: I would like to know. Being bored stinks. You feel so out of tune and broken down. I feel like if you weren’t bored, writer’s block wouldn’t be as bad as it is. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Boredom pieces together the puzzle to make writer’s block brutual enough to be horrible. If you’re lucky, then you’re writer’s block would not be as bad as mine.
That horrible illness that you can’t escape is writer’s block. It pushes your buttons and goes to the extreme. Especially when you’re sucked into a place where you get horrible that hurts physically and mentally. Getting writer’s block is the worst!
