Writer's Block

For the past few months I have suffered through the worst writers block I have had in years. All the ideas are there, I just can't seem to get them out at all. I realize the key to getting through writers block is to sit down and actually write but I just can't seem to focus on anything either.

I used to prefer writing on paper, but now I am starting to wonder if I need to be writing on the computer from now on. At least this way here I can focus on a few things at once. Maybe my brain has just gone through and merged with the technological advancements that exist now. When I am typing I am able to watch everything that is going on around me. When I am writing I have to focus on the paper, and making sure that all my letters look like letters.

It's also possible that the day to day activities of being a mom has taken it's toll on my brain. I find that at the end of the day, or even just at times when she is sleeping, if I am not sleeping, then I am on the computer looking for work. Maybe when she is a bit older and can entertain herself a bit better, I will be able to focus more. Maybe I just need to drink more coffee. Likely I just need to exercise more. Or at all really. I've heard exercise can be good for the brain.

Too bloody hot out there though.

Any other ideas to get my brain to turn it's self back on?
I could need more human contact. It is lonely in my head.


  1. The head is a scary place. I spend way too much time there. I have to force myself to go out and fraternize with real people, but I am always glad after I do. The only way I've found that gets my brain turned back on is either a.) I have no control over it, b.) sometimes surfing the internet helps, or c.) exercising/yoga. Good luck pulling yourself out of the funk!

    1. Exercising is probably going to be my best hope on this one. I guess we will see. Thanks for the other ideas.
