Writer's block? Well, sort of. Whatever you call it, I had this in the past few weeks. Been busy doing monthly reports and all that stuff and going home at 8pm, I had nothing else in mind but the thought of a cold shower and a warm bed.
Not writing posts for a long time has consequences. First, you'll lose some of your followers (if not most). Second, your blog will look stale. even if you have photos which you thought were good at that time when you uploaded them, weeks after, they will look stale. Third, you'll feel guilty. Then, you'll feel obligated to write and you don't like that.
Contrary to Stephen King's advice on how to stop writer's block, writing posts for your blog should not be an obligation. While the famous author is right in using the metaphor of the toolbox -that writers are like craftsmen putting bricks on bricks - it only applies to writing novels and other serious stuff like technical or business writing. A blog, on the other hand, is an outpouring of your thoughts and feelings (well, not all blogs but mine is) and if you feel obligated to write just so you'll have the day's post, chances are, your written post will show it.
So what I did was read all the posts I wrote on this blog, hoping that reading them would give me an idea on what to write about, and got an inspiration instead! I have over 100 posts and some of them earned heart-warming comments, especially those posts which I did in a spontaneous manner and of course when I post some of my sketches.
So, what to do when you experience writer's block? Be inspired! By the way, what or who inspires you most? Just wondering..
