  1. Haha that’s true my personal favorite ” I guess my writing days are over and i am gonna get back to my normal life now” wow we writers are really dramatic jk we are the best and that’s a great post. P

  2. ‘Words – where are you my little friends?’ [cue weird looks from loved ones]…I’m still chuckling at that one 🙂 I haven’t tried the cheese block. Is that supposed to work? Or is it just a secondary effect of desperation?

  3. Best thing to do when writer’s block strikes, is to go and do something completely different. I disappear off to dig the allotment, or read a book in a different genre to the one I’m writing in (lest comparisons should be made!), or go for a long walk. Anything other than sitting in front of the computer or leaning over a notebook with the pen poised and feeling that emptiness of mind. Whatever, just give yourself a break!

  4. A few more as requested by the story reading ape by the way 👋👋👋Hi

    I’ve let everyone down.
    *sigh* I’ve been living a lie.
    I am a has been that hasn’t even been.
    *head down drags feet* I am a failure.
    Stuffs the last of the Christmas fudge , gets a sugar high breaks a tooth … Then remembers a funny story.
    This post made me smile, being a tad dramatic myself.

  5. Number 15 happens to me all the freaking time! LOL It’s why I turned to blogging, I can never finish a book.

    And I know famous writers also get writers block, but I can never picture JK Rowling not knowing the next line for Harry Potter LOL Too hard to imagine!
