Constipation of thoughts!

October 7, 2008

Yes, I call it a constipation of thoughts. People call it writer’s block. It’s like you frequent the loo but in vain same is here. It must be the 50th time I picked up paper and pen but nothing is coming forth. As always the idea is there but don’t know how to put it down.

Some wise person said, perhaps Paulo Coelho said so:

Endings are always difficult than beginnings

But in that case it is the beginning that is not forming. I want to write… all that is on my mind. All that is bothering me or making me excited.

Well, I should leave because there is this urge to try once more so I am going to grab my paper and pen once again. Let’s hope the haze covering my mind subsides.

    Same is the case with me but the reason is quite different I guess; mine is more related the ability to write. I somehow lack the ability to embellish sentences the way I like to present them. Its not just about the thought but the structure of it as well. I believe you write more powerfully when it comes to breaking a block.

    Best of luck for your next write up! 🙂

    Lol. I think that is the way. Sometimes we are too concerned with writing good than just letting it out. Have you had the chance to watch this movie, Finding Forrestor? There is a line, “No thinking – that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is… to write, not to think!”

    I wish I could write…:(

    میرے افکار پہ پہرے نہ بٹھاؤ لوگو
    جزبے کبھی پابندِ سَلاسِل نہیں ہوتے

    I’m a big fan of Paulo Coelho! You will love this! He’s the first best-selling
    author to be distributing for free his works on his blog:

    Have a nice day!

    Writer’s block, or constipation 😛 , has been a big problem with me too. For me, it comes supplemented with the inability to recall words that I know and understand perfectly well, both in English and Urdu.
