Writer’s block is something I expect to encounter when I’m feeling tired and overwhelmed with an ever-growing to-do list. You hardly ever hear about writer’s block when you’re doing great both mentally and physically, do you? Let me explain.
A week ago I came back home from a magical vacation. I spent my birthday week (hello 26!) in Denver, Colorado with my boyfriend, my brother, and my sister in law. I can genuinely say the trip was perfect. We had delicious food (click here for my favorite restaurant), went to some gorgeous places and saw the most beautiful landscapes I’ve seen in a long time. The pictures really don’t do it justice.
After this much needed time off, I came back feeling relaxed, well-rested and ready to keep hustling. The problem? I’ve been going through the worst writer’s block I’ve ever struggled with! I wrote two pages for my book and deleted them right after. I’ve started a few blogs I immediately abandoned. It’s even taken me a couple days to write 300 words for this post. What’s wrong with me?!
When I launched my website a few months ago I made a promise to always be honest and address uncomfortable topics. I’d say talking about a writer who can’t write is pretty uncomfortable, so here I am — not feeling creative, not feeling inspired, feeling like every day that goes by makes what I have to say less relevant. What an awkward situation! Writing is my safe space, yet now it feels intimidating and scary. I don’t know how to get rid of these feelings.
