You ARE a great writer!


Writing is not hard. Just get paper and pencil, sit down, and write it as it occurs to you. The writing is easy -- it's the occurring that's hard. - Stephen Leacock

Ain't that the truth!?

How many times do you sit down and ... nothing. Blam! Self-doubt takes over at that point and I feel that all is hopeless. Hey, we're all subject to extremes in our reactions to ourselves when the words won't flow. It's part of being creative.... If nothing occurs, that little voice in our head tells us we're no good.

Well, I'm here to tell you that it's not possible for us to be no good. Over the years, you develop ways to tap your creativity when nothing seems to occur. Writing randomly works for me. I just write with no restrictions...

What works for you to get the words flowing?

Sometimes if I just go outside and walk around or work in my roses or herb garden and stop trying to think of something it comes.

For me, I have to really be tuned in to my surroundings. The smallest thing can spark creativity--like this gorgeous photo you have at the top of your blog!!! Where did you get that?

But, it's the tuning in...and the tuning out the noise...that is hard.

New to your blog--and love it!

The nothing occurring part is the most discouraging.

Usually I'll go for a run, or else listen to some music that makes me feel creative. Sometimes just ignoring all the doubt and writing, however awful it is at first, works.

I always have something to write. Coming up with words and a story has never been my problem, now self-doubt—that I can relate to.
If I could judge my book with fresh eyes and an

open mind, I might be able to feel better about my work. But so far only half of my craft come across the way I want it to, and eve time I think I corrected it, the other half looks weak and poor of proper structure.

One day… god willing, I will progress to writing the way I think I can—better yet to the way I know I can. Until that happens, it’s back to the drawing board and nose to the grindstone.

If I get into a funk it's usually because I've been too busy to sit down and write for a while, and surprise, surprise, I find it hard to start up again. Getting out of practice makes it hard so I agree that more practice makes you a better writer - how could it not?
Very inspirational :-)
