Idea Block

I've often said that there's no such thing as writer's block; the problem is idea block. ~ Jeffery Deaver

I'm stuck on something to write. For all my blogs and literary endeavors. For weeks I've been churning out stuff at a regular rate, but now I'm totally stymied.

For example, for Baggage Reclaim, I haven't even turned out an article for this week at all. And the week is almost over.

For the Sexy Smart Elexa project, all I did was regurgigate some stuff that I already had written, and finished a draft that I had sitting there for a while.

For the Bad Girls Guide, I wrote this piece that wasn't even close to my normal capabilities and then hotlinked a really cool blogger. As for my works in progress, gosh, they haven't gone anywhere in months and are just stuck on my hard drive gathering dust.

As for here---you guys got a forward and a meme. As you can see, I'm stretching here---stretching hard. I'm seriously considering taking a blog break. Charming took one a few weeks ago and came back hotter than ever, brimming with stories and stuff. Maybe I just need a blog vacation. Or some questions to get me jumpstarted again.

Your thoughts?

Blog vacations? Don't you even dream about that, inspiration will come, in a while. Just close your eyes and think: why does a 23-year old blonde girl from Amsterdam, the Netherlands came suddenly to my blog and tell me i don't need a blog vacation?
In a few moments inspiration will be back. I tell you.

I've been there - not with blogging, since I just started, but with writing. I have a manuscript that is pretty much complete, but during the course of writing I had to take some time not to write and just gather my thoughts. Then when I was ready I had ideas pouring out.

So, my point is do what you need to do! I'll definitely miss checking out your blogs, but if it helps you then do it. Just make sure your hiatus isn't too long!
