“Shoo! Shoo! Writer’s Block..”

“No, Writer’s Block.. Stay Away From Me!! Shoo Shoo..”

An actor dreads the day he/she is all expressionless and can’t give the best shot. A singer is scared of the days he/she has a bad throat. A TV anchor fears the day he keeps forgetting the lines. And, the circumstance a writer frets the most is not having anything on mind to write about, a deadlock situation famously known as the writer’s block.

Now, one can argue that the world around us is full of so much interesting stuff, events, theories and people; how is it even possible for someone to not get an idea to pen down. Well, for a writer/blogger its one of those miserable days when nothing fits the bill and the words that are penned down fail to make any sense. Its just one of those days when the right part of our brain, which by the way is more creative than the left part, decides to snooze off indefinitely. A result of brain activity being disrupted on the right side.

Blogging being a customary and routine activity for me; I am not lucky either to be devoid of such situations when I fail to get any motivation to pen down something interesting. It is exasperating in a way because it is like the moment of truth. Also, there is a constant nervousness that this unimaginative and uninspired situation is going to be permanent. “My creative box is empty”! That’s the feeling I generally have during these times.

To recharge my creative batteries during these times, I take refuge in other activities like reading. Honestly confessing, this is the time I take inspiration from my fellow WordPressers and blog buddies to start afresh and look for ideas by reading their blogs.

Imagination is the driving force behind all the creation in the world and it is immortal.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. ~ George Bernard Shaw

  1. Whenever I feel stumped, I go take a walk somewhere and do some people watching. I play a game in my head where I try to make up stories for the different people that I see!
