When the Words Don't Come

Do you ever have days or weeks or even months like that? Where you sit at the computer or with a notebook in front of you and there are so many words inside of you but not one of them can make its way from your brain to your fingers? I've been struggling with it for a few weeks now. There are so many emotions roiling around in my head, so many different thoughts flitting from here to there, but not one of them will form itself into a short concise paragraph. As the ever-brilliant John Green said through Augustus Waters, "My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations." There are really so many things I'd like to say, the only problem is that I just can't put my finger on how to say them.


  1. Yes! I have definitely gone through that before. My advice for you is to just wait it out. The words will come when you they are ready :)


  2. I have felt that many times before. I want to say it but every time I go to write it out the words are not the same exact way that I imagine them. Over and over again I go and usually, after a while I get something out that works for me.
    I think when writer's have to work hard to get out their words, it can be some of their best work. :)


Thanks for commenting! It truly makes my day.
