When the writer’s block and the imposter syndrome kicks in…

Do you ever feel like writing but then you have no inspiration? This is what’s happening to me right now. I woke up this morning, and I felt an intense need to write but I had no inspiration whatsoever… it’s frustrating.

I googled some “blog post ideas” and there were no ‘prompts’ that inspired me… again. So I decided to just write about having no inspiration (or having inspiration but not being able to use it) and how much it sucks when it happens.

To be 100% honest with you, it happens to me a lot. I feel that need to write but I can’t find any inspirations, or never the right words.

For instance, last year I started having a novel idea. It was like a movie in my head, I had everything planned. I decided to start writing it, well it’s been a year and I’m still stuck on chapter three because once I’m ready to write it’s like my head goes blank and I’m stuck. A big case of writer’s block (fun). I think about this idea EVERY night before I go to sleep, like literally every night. I’m not even joking. And still I can’t write any more of it. Since this idea I’ve had four more and it’s exactly the same thing!

It’s the same with the blog, also because I guess I get a bit (no… a lot!) of this imposter syndrome which doesn’t help- I have so many ideas and then I’m like “no, you’re not allowed to write about this” so that’s fun again (no!).

As much as I love blogging and writing I always find it hard to feel legitimate to write about something… Are people going to come after me if they decide I am not? Because that’s what people love to do. They don’t know you, they don’t know your life of anything about you but they still feel like they have the right to decide what you are legitimate about, what you are allowed to write or read about, etc etc.

This is funny because I’m like writing this and now I’m stressing about posting it. Like I feel so so anxious about anyone reading my random thoughts. And I don’t even know if I’ll ever post it (if you reading this, wow this is crazy! And I’m sorry you had to read this hahah)

If you’re struggling with this too, how do you cope? Also how to you get your inspiration back?
