To R, the only one who has never taken me for granted

Just 20 days into this blog, and I’m already having a panic attack!!! I feel like I’m running out of things to write about! I have a lot of ideas, but when I sit down to put them into words, my mind goes blank. I just sit and stare at the cursor blinking at me, and watch the screen go dark after a while.

I’ve searched far and wide for inspiration. I even searched the internet for some inspiration. *hides face behind hands* I even went so far as to ask one of my friends what I should write about. That idiot, of course, had no ideas.

So, here I was, panicking about what to write. Are my writing days over? So soon??!! Oh, no! How will I face people? *cries* (Too much of an exaggeration? Okay.)

And, then, inspiration struck. It was like a light bulb had gone off in my head! Maybe I should write about having this panic attack instead! But, then came another problem. How do I end the post? I again presented this problem to said friend of mine. And again, said friend had no ideas. No surprise there! (If you are reading this, I’m very sorry!)

And, I just told said friend that I mentioned him in my post, and he got very excited.

Him: Whaaaaat? Really??!! Am I really in your post??!!

Me: Yes, you are.

Him: No kidding?

Me: Absolutely not. *shakes head* You’ll see. *smirks*

I’m pretty sure he is going to murder me and bury my body somewhere no one can find it after he reads this. But, who cares? I feel better already! Hmm. What does that say about me, I wonder. And, if I stop posting after this, know that I was murdered by someone who claimed to be my friend!

And, since I don’t want to die so soon, I dedicated this post to him. Genius, right? *proud expression*

  1. Hahaha, that’s funny. But don’t worry, almost every blogger goes through this phase and even seasoned bloggers draw up a blank some times. Writer’s block is really real. But what you can try is stream-of-consciousness writing. It’s the form of writing where you write about whatever’s going through your mind, doesn’t matter the number of segues you take or how pathetic the thought is. The important thing is that you don’t stop or pause typing until you’ve finished. This kind of writing will really help to bring out your thoughts much more lucidly onto paper.

  4. Trust me, I can relate! I have blogging and writing slumps all the time. I think one of the best ways to come out of it is to read other blogs and see what they’re writing about. You never know, you might find some inspiration for a similar idea from their posts. 🙂

  5. Omg trust me. I have been so blocked that I have become sluggish in posting regularly. I started my blog in Jan and it hit off pretty well but I failed to write regularly and I feel my blog is such a flop. I have loads to write about but not sure how to. I feel demotivated at times and plain lazy too. -_-

      1. Thanks for appreciating it. 🙂 and I agree on the overthinking bit. I also get over conscious sometimes. Well venting out my writer’s block feels better. Your post does ignite my confidence a little. Thanks a bunch for that. 😀
