Breaking away from writer’s block…

Finally!!! For the longest of times… I have had terrible writer’s block! I have started that many blog posts and deleted that many unfinished blog posts that I thought it would take a miracle before I wrote one again… but no instead it is a poem!!

A poem! YAY I have written another poem. I can’t actually remember the last time I wrote a poem. It feels great to have completed this poem. I remember being on a tram when I started it… lines like rumbling tram… journeying girl came out and I found myself thinking about my trip to work and how I liked the time I got to read. I started writing about what I did when I got to work. As I saw the words on the page and what looked like a poem that I had written… I just wasn’t happy. It was frustrating me that the lines weren’t flowing on the page. I don’t experience writer’s block that often. I know that writer’s have written about it… about the pain of writing. But for some reason it doesn’t happen for me in such a way. I love getting my pen out and to write. Just the feeling of the movement of the pen in my hand is enjoyable.

So for it to not be so enjoyable wasn’t good…

Then yesterday… I had what people say is the “light bulb moment” as I was at a cafe eating my brunch… I wrote in my journal about how annoying it was to think and think but for words to not be written on the page and this morning it all came to me.

I wrote another poem!!!

It feels good.
