Writer’s Block

Posted: June 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

What you see below is some of my silliest work yet. I actually wanted to make it serious but the guess the work took a tone of its own. Its like a rant/poem. In fact, I don’t even know what to call it. I wrote this last night at around 3 am after a week of trying and pushing myself to write. I hope you all like it.

I tried.
Like really. I fucking tried to write.
But its not working.
I dunno why.
Its annoying.
Like really, really annoying.
I mean, I’m in school studying journalism.
Writing shld be easy for me right.
This shouldn’t be happening to me.
I tried writing a depressing story.
A valedictorian in college who has a perfect GPA and a perfect life kills himself.
On stage.
In front of the entire school during the graduation ceremony.
Awesome stuff right?
I couldn’t write 5 lines.
Then I tried to be happy and write a love story.
I don’t know why I even bothered
I mean, do fairy tales exist?
Why write a lie?
At least let me write something close to the truth.
Then I tried something else.
My ex is coming into town and we’re gonna hook up.
The one that graduated.
I wanted to write about the feeling of missing him and the excitement of seeing him again.
Only this time, it was two hot chicks waiting and looking for each other at a train station.
My people, I fell asleep while ‘brainstorming’ for that.
Should I write about sex?
Write a steamy sex scene and let the comments fill up.
Before I do that tho, I have sex to know how exactly I feel and write it down and concoct it into something.
I haven’t had sex for the past 5 weeks.
Biko, am I qualified?
Maybe I should guest write on someone’s blog.
But wait, write what? And which blog sef?
Cece already has my weight loss diary. And people have no clue who I am.
And what will I write sef??
See me see wahala.

So my people, I tried oh!
As in, my head is aching with all these ideas in my head.
Yet, I can’t form words and sentences to help me with the plot.
And I’m here in school studying communications.
SMH
I want oreos

    I can totally relate love. been stuck on the last part of a story for days now. Sad part is, I’ve got two other posts just already written but until i publish this one i can’t move on. I once read that the best thing to do when you have writers block is to write the first thin on your mind. no matter how disorganized and senseless it may seem. Apparently its supposed to get the writing juices flowing. I’ve never tried it tho….x_x

    All in all, nice post. A true writer can writer can write about anything and make it entertaining. You did just that…..(Y)

  10. I wrote about Writer’s Block last year. Wasn’t as witty as this tho. So, I know exactly where you’re coming from.
    I actually ended up looking for exercises to help throw it off. It worked, but still, I have wahala sometimes.
    Good post tho.

    LOL! I really like this one. i also have/am having a bit of a problem writing anything at the moment. But sadly, my own problem isn’t inspiration, its laziness :(. i work at a bank now and i am so tired when i get home. *sigh* ………. Really nice dear. I loved the ‘freestyle’ nature of the piece
