The will to write has evaded me. My thoughts are scattered and whatever solace I found in my words has bereft me. The words that tumbled out of me earlier, as smoothly as water from a tap, are today an ocean, and I am unable to build a boat sturdy enough to move against the current. I function these days, like a plane, who is being driven by a source far superior to my own everyday.

I have never found myself so utterly helpless and unworthy. I spend seconds staring at the wall that turn into minutes and hours, and with each passing second the feeling of being a shipwrecked passenger engulfs me. The sole inspiration of writing this post came from a quote I read somewhere, “Start somewhere, anywhere. Write a few lines. Say anything. And see what happens. Don’t think about it too much or make any fancy announcements. Justwrite. It doesn’t need to be eloquent or presentable; it just needs to be written.” (Yes, I was searching for ways to overcome writer’s block!)

Let’s hope I write again, because I really feel like I am worthless right now.

  1. I had that too, Akanksha. That happens when we are occupied with other things. Perhaps you need your concentration on different things at the moment. Don’t stress you out with thinking about this block. It will pass when you stop fighting it.

  2. See, you wrote.
    Hope to see more posts from you.
    And I still haven’t written a single word. This so called “writer’s block” is killing me somehow. But somehow, this post of yours’ gave me that little boost to start writing, even if it a sentence or a line.

    Keep writing.
    Take Care. 🙂
