So, the block finally broke and I got my writing hat on for a contest I’ve been talking about lately. You know, I don’t actually have a writing hat but now I’m thinking I should.
Anyway, back to the contest!
It was hosted by Angel Illustrations and, as I’ve mentioned before, the rules were to write a short story, poem or descriptive piece based on what will become his new “signature image”. As yet, the image is unfinished but I can tell it will be beautiful when completed – you can check out the full information of the competition here if you have a Facebook account. …and, if you have time, feel free to check out my Author Page. All support is greatly appreciated – your “likes” mean so much and somewhere a Noo-nee will get his wings. Or a cookie.
So yes, I finally got rid of the writer’s block that had been plaguing me and hopefully I’ve done Angel’s new piece of artwork justice. My submission was a short story and I’m keeping everything crossed right now, I may even plait my hair! Talk about cutting it close though, I emailed my submission 2 hours before the deadline.
The close-cutting of deadlines won’t be a regular occurrence in my future career. Honest. …ish.
I’m glad you’re past your block. 🙂
Note to self: Always read the latest post first before offering advice to a problem that no longer exists. Doh! *Shuffles away, and hides under the desk*
Lol no problem, I do that sometimes too. Your advice is helpful though, even if not usable for this time. But I do think what you said was right, I was pushing too much and not just letting the words come on their own; I’d lost focus on the fun part.
YAY on being past the block. One thing I’m learning as I go is that if you’re not having fun, then you need to take a step back and take a break 🙂 good luck with the contest!
Good your writing is back on track. You stared it down and won!
Yay for getting past a block! 😀
And when it comes to cutting it close, it was in and before the deadline. That’s all that matters. 😉
Great to hear you’ve smashed the block. A writing hat would be a good idea. It would let people know to leave you alone short of a national emergency. Must quickly copyright one. LOL
Hurray!!! Blocks are the WORST! So glad you’ve broken through…now go write something;)
Writers block sucks, I’m glad to hear you’re over it. I have writers procrastination.
Must be catching, I have that today too! 🙂
Congratulations on getting over your blockage!
Thank you! 🙂
It happens to all of us Nat. Hopefully not frequently, but we can all relate to what you were going through. Just glad you got it submitted on time. I’ll check it out, and wish you the best of luck! Congrats on completing it! 🙂
Thanks Pat 🙂
