I don’t really know what has happened to me over the last several months. Not only am I experiencing a writer’s block like none I’ve ever come across before in the three years I’ve been writing, but it has now extended to my blogs. I didn’t know what to write about today, so I decided to tackle the elephant in the room…my inability to string together more than two words!
I ramble a lot and now even my rambling is down to a trickle! No more diarrhea of the mouth. I am now calling this the wall. I was thinking that my wall could rival that monstrosity that 45 has planned for the border (even if the thing hasn’t been built yet). I suppose that is an appropriate analogy because the wall I am experiencing is more than likely something in my idiotic imagination.
So…how does one break down an invisible wall. Real life walls like the Berlin Wall or the Great Wall of China can be demolished easily enough if humankind has the fortitude to take that step. Invisible walls are a whole different kettle of fish.
Everyone says I should give myself a break because, after all, I’ve written a whole shitload of stories while I was unemployed…enough to fill the schedule for 2018. When I start writing again, I will be writing for 2019. I guess I have some time. You know, though, it is hard when I readily admit to having OCD. I am and will continue to obsess over this until the words begin to flow again.
Until that time, readers will have to be satisfied with whatever dribble I happen to spew in my blogs or on Facebook. Or…you could always visit my back list of books. Want to read my earlier works…you know the drill…click the links below!

I truly think you are out-thinking yourself. Don’t be so critical of “you”. It will all come back to you with some patience and some brain relaxation. If there is anything I have learned in my 74 years it is to simply let go of what is bothering you. If you worry about it, you will still have the wall and if you don’t worry about it, yep, you guessed it, you will still have that wall. So, with that said, quit worrying. Everything will be just fine before you know it—-I guarantee. Never met a personal “wall’ yet that didn’t come down eventually.
Look, I may or may not have sent a semi silent prayer along to somewhere asking that you slow down the awesomeness a little so I can catch up. Sorry. On the bright side, we still have so many awesome books written by you that we can love and read over and over again. So there’s that. Seriously though, you’re great at what you do, and you’ll do it when you feel able. In the meantime, enjoy life and don’t stress about it!! We will all be waiting when it does happen xx
Annette you are in just unknowingly thinking up the story of a lifetime.
It was fantastic meeting some of your family. Can I adopt your Dad?
