Writer’s Block? Or Just Plain Fear?

  1. Hi there, Im just starting out in blogging too (well I actually haven’t written anything on my blog yet) but I do write a lot in my journal/diary whatever you want to call it. Anyways Im commenting bcz Im in the same situation!! I guess I didn’t look at it as fear as Ive got plenty of fear to deal with already, lol. But I do the same thing! I read other peoples stuff and before I know the day has ended and Im still reading or researching etc. Just nice to know Im not alone in this “feeling stuck” kinda thing :) You seem to be doing a good job so far tho. Keep it up!


  2. :) I’ve been blogging for a decade, writing as part of my work for several more, and journaling for a lifetime, I hear there are writers out there that have never experienced a block, but I’m not one of them – and it really didn’t have anything to do with fear. My blocks have felt more like huge open holes in my creative process. Is if there were simple No Words to be found. I hope you never experience that…it’s uncomfortable.


    1. Wow you have been writing for a long time! I hope I never experience what you describe but my intuition tells me it is inevitable. I hope that when it happens though, I have the tools to get through it. Good luck to you :)


  3. Hi Lisa, thanks for dropping by my blog! I have the same feelings about this as you do. I have a draft saved up on writer’s block, but can you imagine, I got stuck on it as well. I’m having major writer’s block in writing stories. Because I am more used to writing discursive, non-fiction type of things, I feel much more confiden in that. However, I remember a time when I actually could write characters and dialogues and they’ve just not been coming now! I have fallen in love with blogging though and I won’t deny, building a readership is the only motivation that keeps me going. I would still write if I didn’t get that, but I find I write more(published and unpublished) because I have the means to an audience.


    1. Oh thank you, for both your blog and stopping by in return. I agree that writing stories is much harder. I have been wanting to give it a try but I am much better at writing about about things that happen to me and how I feel or what I think. I’m still new to blogging and so far it has been amazing, challenging, but amazing. I love both writing and reading perspectives from other people. I find having an audience a bit intimidating but the more comments and followers I get the more confidence I gain. Good luck to you and thank you again :)
