I’ve gotten the question couple of times asking if I ever experience a creative block. Yes, I do, and it’s not always funny at all. Imagine trying to write but nothing is flowing. Worse still, you are actually writing but its just nonsense. I hate creative blocks. Wondering why I’m ranting to you?
So as I type this, I had already tried to write the original blogpost for today for over 6 hours. I had writing gigs which I had written but when it got to my own work, I blacked out. Imagine writing and deleting for like two hours. I became frustrated. Since I already had a topic, I started researching and researching but to no avail. People of God, I wanted to cry. This is the first time my creative block will be this bad.
At first, I thought it was because I didn’t sleep well so I slept only to wake up to my hustle again. This time I was even blank. There was no sense of humor at all in what I typed. You know when you read your work and by yourself, you know what you have written is far from good. I didn’t need anybody to tell me.
After so many deleting, I decided to go out. In my mind, I felt it was because I had not stepped out of my door in 3 days. Don’t ask why I didn’t step out, lol. I dressed up, went out, and visited some friends. We talked, ate, and laughed. I thought I had solved my mystery but the mystery was looking at me like, you don’t know about it.
4 hours later
I got back home feeling happy, picked my laptop to type, you can already guess how it ended. You won’t believe I kept on writing and deleting till like 12 am till I decided to call a friend to rant. I was fed up. I mean, I had gotten messages about how people are expecting a blog post today but I’m here typing nonsense. Or are my village people behind this? I double-checked with myself and I could not figure out what was wrong. There was no boy drama, I was not dead broke so what could it be.
Long story short, it was a promise of #5000 that made me type this thing you are reading now. Lmao… I’ve had a creative block over time but this still remains the worst. I’m still trying to figure out what’s wrong with me but first, I needed to let you know my state of mind.
I’m sorry this was not what you expected to read but what’s the point of not being truthful with you. I just really hope you understand. That said, please help me. Have you ever had a creative block? How did you handle it? a sister really needs your advice. Please drop your advice for me in the comment section.
It’s okay if you don’t totally love this blog post because it’s not well put together but then you could still scroll down to double-tap the love icon.
