Writer's Block - An Open Letter to my Brain

14:18

Dear Brain,

How's it going?
It's been awhile since I have come up and decided to call you out on something. Usually I just let you do your own thing. I get it you are independent like to walk to the beat of your own drum but...here is the deal.
Remember about four years ago we started writing a book?
It was great, we could write for hours and hours but then something happened...you dropped the ball. The ending is there but you decided to crap out when it got to the moments leading up to it. That was not a team player attitude my friend. There is no "I" in team. Yet here we are four years later still just starring at the manuscript. Sure we have started other projects, moved on in life...I now write a blog and do videos and you just sit there all day, day dreaming about chocolate and a select few of the dwarves from the Hobbit. Sometimes those to topics mingle and cause me a great distraction. But I digress.
Even with the new projects you have moments where you are like a machine, leading my fingers over the keyboard as I write and write.
Then like a bad rash or strep throat you do it again.
Writer's block.
I have had it up to here with this writer's block, brain.
I have let you have your fun but it is crunch time.
Get your act together.
It is time to get that writing happening again, with some much going on this should just be pumping you up!

When you are reading this you better not be rolling my eyes...

The fact of the matter is you have a job to do and that job is to finish off those various projects. It is not like you have not done it before. That and you could benefit from loosing a bit of weight from all that sitting around...your cerebral cortex is starting to look a little pudgy. You are not the brain I had four years ago and that has to stop.


Either you get your act together or I will start drinking Diet Pepsi...
We both know what copious amounts of aspartame does to the brain.

Is that a threat?
No.
More of a friendly poke.

I'm watching you.

Regards from your host body,

Nicole... (xoxo)

  1. Ah writer's block. The bane of my existence. I'd offer advice but as well you know I am even more hopeless than yourself.

  2. I've been trying to finish my novel for about three months now and have no motivation to do so. It's terrible, as I only have 3-4 chapters left and I can't bring myself to write about it. I too wrote about how much I was annoyed by my brain for it somewhat recently.
