True story - I actually set this blog up in September. But for lack of anything to say, didn't post anything till December. Although they say "Everyone has a story to tell" this isn't really writers block...I just have yet to find a story I feel is interesting enough for me to bother telling it.
I see the same writers itch in my daughter that I see in me. It doesn't have to be good...it just has to be on paper. (oh the poor trees!) She started Chapter 3 on her short story tonight, before I commandeered her into helping me plan a March menu. She would still be writing (and illustrating) now, I think, if I had not distracted her attention.
Do you ever feel the need to write, but have nothing to say? Perhaps this is just a left-over from my adolescence, when I would write to gather my thoughts. Or, perhaps this is more common. I don't know. What I do know is that when something really inspires me, I feel that I write much better, and that it's worth reading. This post, may not be worth the read (sorry no refunds on that 2 minutes I just killed), but it is a question I've wanted to find the answer to repeatedly. And, maybe by putting this out there, someday, someone will be able to answer it.
