Writer’s Constipation

May 11, 2015

I’ve been having trouble writing anything these days, even my web log posts have kind of taken a dump, even that long entry was surprising to me.  I don’t know if it’s environmental or maybe I just can’t be arsed to do it or…what, but I just am not feeling it these days. Maybe it’s the focusing on weight loss? I don’t know what the deal is. I’m just…blah! I have plenty of ideas and I see them in my head, but it’s just not coming out. It’s…a constipated feeling. 

My mind is just sitting on the toilet, so to speak, and squeezing and squeezing for an idea and nothing comes out. It’s rather disappointing to me and I definitely know the mental image of a brain taking a shit is definitely a disappointment to you, dear reader, for I doubt that’s how you envisioned your Monday afternoon. 

But yes, plenty of ideas and inability to get them started or even write them out. I’m trying, I’ve been doing chains of necessity like Matthew Woodring Stover said he uses—yeah, I asked him once—and that’s going okay. I’ve always been good with writing prompts. If I have one in mind I can usually bang out a nice story, but independently I’m just lost. So, how do you insert Ex-Lax into your brain hole and get rid of the writer’s constipation?
