Feeling Pressured… Experiencing Writers Block

Writers block…

I think every writer no matter what they write goes through it. We all have those moments where we sit at our computer and just stare at the blank screen as you just don’t know where to start, or what on earth you are going to write about.

It’s been a while since I experienced it, as there is usually always something on my mind that I can jot down into a post. Lately though, I’ve been stuck. I can’t find the motivation, I want to write but nothings coming out. I’ve sat at my computer now, writing a few lines about different things but constantly deleting them as after the first line, I’ve no idea what to say next!

It can be so demotivating to have nothing in your brain that you can form into a post. Just sitting there blankly hoping something will pop up and spark something within you. Sometimes that happens, other times you just have to give up and hope that something comes to you another time.

Lately I’ve been finding beauty posts so monotonous to write, don’t get me wrong they are always interesting but there is something about them that can be so hard to write all the time.  I’ve always said that my posts are mostly going to be lifestyle as I just find those types of posts so easy and interesting to write, I also find that its those types of posts that people get involved with in the comments, its then that you begin to learn more about people and their experiences and that in turn can even help you learn a bit more about yourself.

It always amazes me when people say that I have helped them or inspired them with my posts, what can be more motivating than that? I follow a good few bloggers who like to express there feelings and thoughts and I honestly admire that, even if their opinion is not the same as mine or majority of the public, I still think its amazing for someone to voice their opinions and have their voice heard.

Picking yourself back up and kick starting writing again can be difficult, I always love to get out of the house and go for a walk or a drive. It helps so much to stop you thinking about not having any ideas. I also find that going somewhere new or even visiting somewhere you haven’t been in a while always sparks some sort of idea in me!

Don’t let yourself get bogged down by the fact that you can’t form an idea in your head, it happens to the best of us, sometimes all you need to do is take a break and come back to it in a while. Trust in yourself, writes block doesn’t last forever… 🙂
