Unblocking Writer's Block


Evidently my creativity lies not in my angst, but in my joy. I've been fighting a case of writer's block for nearly a week. I had no answer for it and was quite discouraged. Some undiscussed issues in my home were bugging me too, so I was not having a great week. Last night, right before he went to bed, my dear husband and I spent about 10 minutes discussing and trying to find solutions for those undiscussed issues. I still had a Sunday school lesson to finish writing and was going to stay up a couple more hours to finish. He said, "Why don't you get up when I do and finish it then?" I followed his advice, snuggled into bed next to him and woke up early this morning refreshed with fingers tingling to get on the keyboard. One Sunday school lesson, one magazine article, and two blog entries later, I am unblocked! Hurray for wise husbands!

"Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him." Psalm 37:7a

Hi Patricia,

I gotta agree with you on this as it recently happened to me as well and I've just managed to get back into the regular habit of posting at my blog.

It's always a good idea to discuss issues with close ones as they always tend to find the simplest solutions for us and then we say to ourselves, "Now, why didn't I think of that before?" :)
