Worry, worry, worry ...

I’ve been trying to work on a short story for a competition this week but I’m struggling to transfer the words to screen.  My mind feels like it’s filled with a fog and it’s hard to break through.  I can feel the story is there at the back of my mind, forming slowly and waiting to be released.  I just need to find some way of freeing my mind.  I think there are so many other worries that I’m carrying around in my head at the moment there is no room for these ideas to take centre stage.
I can feel a venting session coming on this evening.  I usually have a separate piece of notepaper for each aspect that I’m trying to keep in my head.  I write down everything I don’t want to forget about each one and then I can completely focus on them without worrying that I’ll push out the others.
Does any of this make sense?  I feel this is turning into a bit of a ramble, which is kind of what the inside of my head is like right now.
Anyhoo, the sun is shining so that’s one less thing to worry about ...


  1. All I can say is - you're not alone. Every writer goes through this from time to time I'm sure. You have the most wonderful idea for a story in your head but it just refuses to come out.

    I'm not sure exactly what the answer is but I like your idea of writing everything down on pieces of paper.

    Good luck!

  2. That is not a fun feeling.

    Maybe just have a free write where everything goes on the same page. You can sort it out from the paper, or maybe everything will fall into place and you can start working the way you usually do.

    Good luck. I'm sure your words will find their way to paper. :)
