Writers block. Another way for saying, writers blanking. Writers block is the serious case of not actually know what to write. When a writer has a blank it can take weeks just for them to figure out what to write next. "The music lets me see the story but the story doesn't let me write the words"(Elizabeth J.Kolodziej) This happens often. We visualize what we want from our writing and a lot of the time we are taking it to far, so when our writing doesn't compare to our standards, we end up with writers block. Having a topic and being able to complete it are two very important things to a writer, so it often occurs when a writer may over think an idea and then dispose of it completely. "To get over artists block, write something shitty"(Dave Holowitz) The same goes for writers block. When you're stuck on something, it may be a good idea to let your mind have a break and write something stupid. We as humans like to stick to one thing till it's done, well sometimes it helps to take a break, do something new, and then go back to work, relaxed and confidant. A lot of good writers have found that the answers come at a time where they aren't hunting for them. "When words don't come easy, I make do with silence and find something in nothing"(Strider Marcus Jones) Take the time to find something in nothing and see the magic that can happen.
