Writer's Block: An Author's Worst Enemy

First of all, I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping up-to-date with my blog. With Easter and whatnot, I kinda forgot I had one.

Lately, I've been coming up with amazing ideas for stories, but every time I try to start one, I can't get past the first page. It's like I can't get myself into the writing mode. I mean, I just completely finished my Sci-Fi novel not too long ago; everything about it is done. But now I can't get into the rhythm of writing another story. I'm not sure whether to start the next one or start on something completely new.

And every time I do get to the end of that first page, I get writer's block. I never believed in writer's block because if you do, you'll end up with it all the time. But now it's like I'm cursed. Every single story I write, I end up unable to move forward through it. It's like I'm so focused on the one I finished that I can't start up anything new.

I've never had trouble starting new stories, so it's weird to me. I'm trying to get past the horrible writer's block, but I just can't and have been unable to for the past week. I know it'll pass, but I wish it would just pass now.

 What have you guys done to get over your writer's block?

Well, it's time for me to send off a few new queries and wish for the best. Hope you guys had a Happy Easter!

  1. Sometimes I just have to put it all down and leave it for a bit, maybe a few days, but more often a couple of weeks... The important thing for me is to keep writing, little things, (journal entries, poems, short stories, paragraphs) anything creative then when I'm ready and my mind is clear I start again...
    I've also got loads of first pages, first chapters etc...some will never see the light of day, but some may become my 'next' project some time in the future!
    Have some fun just getting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, without any pressure!

  2. I write poems to temper the sting of writer's block. I also do some singing or writing lyrics. I find other creative outlets can often inspire me to overcome a block. Some quality time with loved ones for some fun also really helps. I've heard many times though, writing anything as much as possible is the best way to finally get through the block once and for all. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

    1. Thanks for your input. I really do need to try keeping up with something even if it's not my novel. I have never had writer's block for this long before, but I need to try my best to push through it.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
