On the rare occasions I’ve had writer’s block, I’ve seen a pattern of it not being the lack of ideas, but an overflow of them. It’s more a result of the fact that there’s lots on my mind to share, but the idea that it only makes sense to share one idea is what stops me from writing. I get caught in a cycle, not knowing where to start, and my head becomes overwhelmed.
Writer’s block, in that sense, was always a good sign. So often I think writers can fear that moment of not knowing what to write, and words just don’t seem to flow from the mind. We worry that we won’t have the ability to get our thoughts down even if we know we need to. However, when you learn what I’ve learned - that writer’s block is a result of many ideas - then you at least know you have options. You can at least fight your way through, pick one thing, and write about it.
As I’m currently writing, it’s not that I feel overwhelmed with ideas, but I feel overwhelmed with emotion. I feel that I’m rambling, saying more than necessary, but in my case at least I can know that I do feel. I just wish I were different. I wish I were stronger so I could sort out feelings like I out my ideas. The problem I have with being an “emotional” type is that it’s more of a hindrance on myself. Maybe you could make the case that I could be a sense of comfort to others, but ultimately their choices are their choices anyhow.
Finding your place or purpose isn’t easy. Regardless, I’m always up for an adventure. I suppose that’s all that really matters.
