I’ve started and “un-started” writing several times today. Is this what’s referred to as writer’s block? But I thought you had to be a writer to get that. Oh wait, I just finished writing my first short story- does that make me a writer or does it have to be published first? I have no idea how that goes so for now I’ll just say this—- I finished writing a short story yesterday and today I’m having a hard time writing a post for our blog. Since I’m new at blog writing too maybe this is normal “bloggers block”— At any rate I have several questions which I’ll list here then wait patiently for help…
how many stories, books, articles, etc. do I have to write to be considered a writer?
how many need to be published before I’m considered a writer?
does the fact that I post to this blog make me a writer?
if this is not “writer’s block” what is it and when will it go away?
if this is “writer’s block” how long will it last?
Thank you so much for your input.
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
