I’m blocked.

Completely and utterly depressed and idle.

I need help.

I’ve been staring at this blank page for two hours.

What shall I do?

    Sorry to hear this, Raiha; I get like this a lot and it is bloody hard (scuse my bluntness!) to move past. What I find helps is to write it all down – uncensored – in my journal. That very often removes the emotional detritus and allows creativity back in again. xxx

    • Thanks Ali! I’ll try to do what you’ve suggested. I’ve been taking out my angst on my sketchbook lately, but writing everything down might be more useful!

        As I say, Raiha, don’t censor it at all – even if that means lots of swear words, crap punctuation and screams! Better out than in, says I. Good luck! xxx

  2. If by Block you mean the Writers block in which you fail to find inspiration, Watch a good movie, read a good article, hum to a good tune. Enjoy the nature. Think about the good place in your mind. You’ll be just fine 🙂

    • I don’t quite know how to explain it, but it’s not JUST writers block! That’s why I didn’t use that specific term. I bought a new sketch book. I took it out, set out my pastels and stuff but NOTHING is coming you know. Just NIL creativity! I guess I’m stressed or something. I love music, and I listen to it daily, but I just don’t WANT to hum along with the song (something I ALWAYS do). I have NO idea what’s wrong with me. I bought a new novel, it’s lying untouched on my bedside table. It’s like I need some jolt of electricity to bring me out of this hazy, creepy case of the blues. Any suggestions?

      • Hmmmm…. Maybe you are just being extra lazy these days? We can be lazy without knowing that we are being one.

        Hang out with your friends maybe to get out of this rut…

        Also If you are into Prayers and stuff, I would suggest to bow down and pray or read Quran 🙂 Nothing works better than that! 🙂

      • Ha yes that was one of the things I figured out, And… I miss my mom! She’s been in England for 2 months,15 days and counting. I don’t get along with her that well usually, but now that she’s gone… Well, she’s coming back on Monday, and I do believe that little baby me will be okay after a few hugs from mommy!

        And believe me, I’ve been bugging my poor friends for days now. They’re trying their best to cheer me up!

        Let’s wait for Monday, and I might just start writing again on that same day 🙂

      • Oh I see…I’m the same with my mom. but obviously its a human nature to miss things when they are not in our life. I hope she’ll be back soon and you’ll be just fine 🙂

        And oh dear friends, cheering us up since the start of the time! 😛

        Best of luck to you 🙂
