Help! I Have Writer’s Block

We have had a very busy summer here in Ohio. Between playground playgroup, cookouts, graduation parties, out of town guests, and the everyday crazy that is life around here, I haven’t had much time for writing. Now I’m out of the habit and am finding hard to get back onto the blogging bandwagon.

I have so many ideas in my head, but can’t seem to get them onto the page/post.

I would love to hear suggestions as to what you do to get over your writer’s block. Please, help a fellow blogger out here. 🙂

  1. Journaling helps me, especially during my devotions. Sometimes I have found at the end of my time … hmm, I think that’s a blog post!

  2. Write a review. I’m selfish here, but did you see my note on your “Currently Reading” page? I’d love to read something by Elyse Fitzpatrick but don’t know where to start and am interested in “Trust” and “Contentment” by Lydia Brownback. Are they actual devotionals?

    Post pictures or recipes. Wait, I guess that doesn’t count as “writing”, huh?

    If you haven’t noticed, I’ve had writer’s block too! 🙂

  3. I’d love to read another poem of yours. Memoirs. Hopes, fears, dreams, questions. Most embarrassing moment.
    Fashion faux pas. I want to read on mentoring, as I still feel a huge gap for one in my life. Those are a few things I’d like you to write about.

    As for what helps me overcome my own w.b? Sorry, I’m not much help. Writer’s block for me would be duct tape fastened to my hands. You all probably WISH I had writer’s block more often!

  4. Ooh, one more suggestion. Amy journaled what she was doing and feeling and learning at age 19. Sent it to my Sarah. Maybe you could post something like it.

  5. zo’s response is funny. 🙂
    I am rather an amateur (did I spell that right?), but what I do is carry paper around w/ me wherever..even the car and as soon as some good lines come to mind, I write them down.
    Later I try to compose something based on the lines I have written down.
    Often what happens is that I just have to write and publish something that I’m less than satisfied with, but after a bit, I usually find my groove again. I think writing is the only way to overcome writer’s block.

  6. I’m much newer at this than you are, but can definitely agree that summertime got me off track from what I thought I could do on the blog. To jump back in I thought of what I especially loved about my moments this summer and why they blessed me. I also thought about what I’m struggling with and why that’s so. Brought a lot of words out of me…and I even published a few!
