Yesterday I had writer’s block. I can’t even remember the last time I struggled with getting my thoughts out on the page. It seemed the more I wrote, the more frustrated I became since my words and feelings didn’t match with my thoughts in my head.
So I did what anyone would do – I asked Facebook what to do. And then I went to Pinterest to find inspirational quotes.
That is when I realized fear were getting in my way.
Fear and self-doubt were stifling my story I wanted to get out.
See, I am trying to write a piece for the Listen to Your Mother audition. I know that there are a few people that read this blog. I have spoken in front of students, presented at a conference, and been on a panel on TV several times; but reading a personal story out loud makes me nervous. Wonder if it is no good? Wonder if I can't say what is in my heart? Wonder if I fail?
But then I remembered this:
So I am not going to wait for it to come out perfectly
I am going to just breath and work through this.
Have you ever had writer's block? How do you work through your fear?
