Writers Block

Written by PushingUpRoses on September 30th, 2010

I have this unfortunate plight,
Where I’ve lost my ability to write,
Whatever I say is incredibly blase,
Without much enthusiam, I sound a bore,
Perhaps some prose of ancient folklore?

I attempted a love sonnet,
But it made me vomit,
I tried my hand at a comedy,
But the humor is something I cannot see.
Silvia Plath and Ogden Nash,
Forgive me as I derail and crash.

You see, I have some kind of block
Some kind of writers block, don’t mock,
Perhaps some inspiration would help?
A muse, a song, a movie, …kelp?
That doesn’t even make sense here, yelp!

Now it’s all goobilygock….
Motor skills failing…writers block…

    Writing about not be able to writing… Is…er… curious and fun. I like it.

    “Kfshroeurytsa” that parts so deep it made me cry

    'These are the times.'
    The fool once said
    'That tend to try men's souls.'

    Is that true?
    I haven't a clue,
    I'll be damned if I know.

    But as one who likes to write a bit
    To one who writes a lot;
    I feel your pain and misery
    As you suffer through this block.

    That these 'trying times'
    Soon leave you be
    Is my hope for you.

    –In the very least
    I sincerely wish
    Your writing is soon renewed.

    So here's to the Pen and the merry hell
    Its stillness makes us endure!
    And having wasted some of your time
    I hope you I've reassured.

    hmmm…guess my rage tip didn't work.

    Well, here's a silly writer's block charm that I'll say for you:

    The writing gods are the ocean,

    your mind the beach's sand

    you always touch but can only feel them

    when gifts are tossed upon your land

    A starfish of poetry,

    A seaweed novella

    An anecdote crab

    who will dance a tarentella

    And if they will permit it so

    Let a whale be tossed upon the shore

    To give you scripts and epic events

    until you can't write any more

    All these things I wish unto you

    writer whose time is overdue

    ——

    Okay, that wasn't particularlly good (kinda grim with all the dying sealife now that I think about it) but if it did something for you I'm glad.

    best wishes from the guy who won't shut up

    Sometimes writer's block is when we're at our most creative.

    “There once was a something something,
    That did a thing with another thing,
    It did it once more,
    blah blah blah blah floor,
    I just heard the telephone ring.”

    Or not.

    Hey, that's exactly what I do! “When you can't think of anything to write, go meta.” That's how I do half my assignments. Works every time.

    My god, pushinguproses turned into the main character of Lovecraft's “Rats in the Walls!”

    2 things that always help me:
    -Listening to Mumford & Sons
    -Watching American Beauty

    Of course everyone gets triggered by different things and it also depends on your taste in music and movies… but it's worth a try^^

    What do you wish that I would do?
    To help you, over or under or through,
    these times in which thought neither comes nor goes.
    I'd hate to leave you at mercy, of critics or crows.

    While your brain spins it's tires in proverbial mud.
    And the wall meets your head with a fracturing *THUD*.
    Till your brain gets its fill of a creative flood.
    What do you wish me to do?

    I could grant you some lather to launder your mind.
    Or give you a craniectomy to replace yours with mine.
    But I hope we coincide, that the best thing untried.
    Is to give you my best, whilst your blockage bide by.

    Ah, Poetry. I know the exact structure to write them with, I've heard and know of nearly every poet who ever lived…and still I'm probably the worst Poet in the universe…'sigh'.

    That was awesome!

    Im not a writer
    But i can see
    The angst
    That runs through thee
    Music is my game
    lets face it
    It's almost the same
    with fingers that run across strings
    and sounds through circuit boards
    I began to run out of steam.

    So i turned to this page
    to see if i could see
    a word of inspiration
    that might help me

    Writers block, writers block
    one mans death
    and another mans dream.

    Okay now that wasnt very good and my grammer is very poor. but it does state im not a writer and that i think is the first poem iver written in about 10 years. ha

    Best summation of writer's block and that futile search for inspiration that accompanies it… ever. :)
