In my last week, I found myself facing a huge wall in my story. Yes, the writer’s block. Oh! The horrors! 😨😰
Instead of banging against the wall with my head, and screaming why, why, why, I decided to try and scale it like Spider-Man. Even though I fell many times, I was glad to have tried.
Despite that, I went into a writing slump. This feeling of not wanting to write after I hit the great wall (not of China) but in my story, made me think that everything I wrote was garbage. It was difficult. I kept typing away on Google Docs, somehow I keep pressing the backspace repeatedly. And what’s worse; I kept losing my main character’s voice. That sucked a lot.
The one thing I don’t like was my inner writer voice. I had to silent it, if not I won’t be able to write properly. So I played this story’s playlist loudly on my speakers to try to picture the scenes smoothly in my head. I tried another method in case that didn’t work as much as it should. I asked myself, why am I writing this.
Because I need to tell his story. I want to tell my readers the lessons I’ve learnt while writing this book.
Once I came up with an answer, I tried writing the poem again. And this time, it flowed naturally out of my brain. I was so happy!
During the writer’s block session, I sat myself down, and outlined the next few chapters in my narrative poetry. Thank goodness, I overcame it by rewriting the scene over and over. It was hard but I pushed it through.
And to my surprise, this happened:👇👇 👇
I cannot believe it. No way. That is truly impossible. But I did it, I did it!
That is all for today.
