Writer’s Block

So I’m laying in bed thinking of what to write. I’m writing a book for my son. I asked him to draw the pictures for it. Right now I’m stumped! 😦

This isn’t cool. I thought ‘okay its just going to flow out of me,’ boy was i wrong. When I write poetry it just flows. Writing stories were always hard for me to write. Short stories as well but not as tough.

I’m also having to deal with a very hyper boy. 🙂 That I love. Maybe I’ll just watch him and write what comes to me and look at it later then put it together. 🙂

  1. I have the same problem. Poetry comes easy, but a story…that’s a lot harder. More intimidating, I guess? Why? I don’t know.
    My 10 year old grandson wanted to make a story with me for my blog, but, just like you, I didn’t know where to begin.
    However, after I took some “action” photographs outlining his thoughts….a storyline began to unfold.
    We had such a great time creating the story together. I printed it out for him and had it spiral bound just like a “real” book from a store. When I gave it to him, he said, “Aha! a limited edition!” (actually, the only paper copy in the whole wide world).
    He loves it…and that’s all that really matters to me.
    I did post the (very short) story that we created together….on my blog. It’s called “Revolt of the Green World”

    Ask your son to explain what is going on in his drawings and I know that you will soon have a wonderful story too. Write on!
