Writer's Block.

Wanting to write

but not being able to becuase

words aren't coming out right


Writer's block could then cause you not to write at all


But it's funny how

the greatest creation started from nothing;



What if God had writer's block

but didn't give up writing


And what if our countries are word that aren't coming together right?


He probably left it up to us to finish the story

and we, humanity, aren't making anything with it.


Writer's block.

Honestly, I feel like you could have done better with this. You're an amazing writer with an equally amazing topic at hand and both you and thé peice have potential. I'd try to give it a bit more description, maybe some analogies, ect. Great job tho.

You know, compared to some of your other pieces, I thought this was rather flat. I liked a lot of the lines, but others seem to lack?... try elaborating on the frustration that you feel when nothing seems to translate to paper. Good scheme though:)

Nice.......Writer's block is something every writer has to overcome and those who do so in the most spectacular manner are those who become ideals. Be it god, or even Paulo Coelho

Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any.

This is Amazing!! I love the message that we finish the story and something can come from writers block. Izzy777, will you please rate and comment on one of my pieces?

I like it, the topic isn't really something that mos writer's like to write about, but you took the leap
