Writer’s Block

 In Weekly Forum Discussion, Writer in Residence

Written by: Collette Cottingham; Creatively Hip


At times I don’t know what to write. Sometimes it is a lack of creativity and other times I hit a roadblock. Either way, I am stuck. In the past, this could last days, weeks, months or sadly years.

I didn’t think I had the power to overcome the block. I kept looking for others’ help. In reality, this help turned my block into a complete wall.

I finally let go and turned within. I sat in the quiet and listened to the deep feeling inside. My natural intuition was awakened. I let my intuition guide the way. I became aware that I needed to take care of me…mentally, physically and spiritually.

My self-care opened my creativity. I became alive. My mind was flowing. I had all these stories at my fingertips.

Years later I am at peace. I don’t worry about another block. Some days I sit down and have no idea what I am going to write. My intuition leads the way. I trust myself. The words fly effortlessly onto the page. I am free. My creativity is alive.

When I trust myself I am never disappointed.
