08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Okay I know a lot of watchers on my list only "watch" me because I watch them (watch-backs) but I know one or two of you actually read the crud I post soooo this will probably be bad news just for them.....

I can't write ANYTHING. Everytime I try to write, whether it's a poem, short-story, or a continuation of a story, my mind just locks up. I've tried EVERYTHING. I've been listening tp music, I've been reading, watching things on youtube, writing down certain phrases in hopes of getting inspiration- all of these things have helped before so WHY can't I get out of this funk?!

I thought that once school ended I'd be able to continue one of the only things that make me happy- writing. But now it's July and I've come up with nothing. This fact has been making me sink deeper into this funk and I'm scared that I can't get out. When you live in a small town with a family that hovers and don't have many friends, it's really hard to be inspired.

I know some people will probably say, "Oh stop being dramatic! Everyone gets writer's block". But I've had writer's block before, it's never been this bad. Not only am I getting frustrated with writing, but now I'm getting frustrated with music- MUSIC, playing W.O.W., even Deviant Art! It feels like a relationship going downhill! DX

I don't know what to do. I wish someone would help me get out of this funk.

The key to beating writers/art block is not acknowledging its existence. I've never gotten art block because I don't believe the shit exists. I think people freak themselves out and make it a reality for themselves when they could just as easily make a reality where writers/art block does not exist.

Feeling a lack of inspiration DOES happen, but that can easily be fixed by reading up on your favorite novels- the ones who inspired you to write in the first place. Watch your favorite shows, movies, play your favorite video games- and YOU WILL get inspired again. Keep trying until you do. Do not give up on your creativity- its THERE its just like a candle that needs to be re-lit.
