What Is This Thing Called Writer’s Block? – Guest Post by, Jaq D Hawkins…

Good article

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

What makes me a writer is the need to write. It’s an incessant driving force characterised by a series of scenes from stories constantly animating through my mind. Not just one, I always have several stories playing out in my head. So when articles come out talking about what to do when you get writer’s block, I wonder how that can work with a host of characters continually clamouring for attention in a creative mind.

We’ve all faced the blank page. There are times when words flow quickly and other times when they take a little more plumbing, but once an idea has manifested, the words to express it fully exist somewhere in the aether, we just have to access them. Sometimes they can be elusive and the person who panics will hit a block.

Take an article like this for example. What could a person who doesn’t suffer from…

The Poetry Corner featuring Vic Tomlinson

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner! 🙂 Please join me in welcoming Vic Tomlinson and his poem “Oneness” from his poetry collection titled An Odyssey of Love, Nature & Life. Enjoy! 🙂

Oneness by Vic Tomlinson

The breeze freshens my face

and rearranges my hair.

The sand is soft beneath my feet

and offers little resistance as I walk.

The thrashing of waves,

as they reach the shore,

triggers serenity

and stirs the depth of my soul.

I am as one with these

and they are with me.

Beautiful poem, Vic! I love it, thank you for sharing. 🙂

The Poetry Corner featuring Vic Tomlinson

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner, featuring Vic Tomlinson! 🙂

Heaven by Vic Tomlinson

How do you

perceive heaven?

Heaven might be

around us, but in

another dimension.

Heaven might be

that place of infinite happiness

and eternal rest.

Heaven might be

where we live with the angels

among beautiful green pastures,

clean streams, and clear blue skies.

Heaven might be

wherever we want

it to be.

Heaven could be that place

for you and me.

 

Awesome poem, Vic. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

The Poetry Corner featuring Sir Phillip Potier-Jones

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner, featuring Sir Phillip Potier-Jones and his poem, I’ll Take A Step Back. 🙂

I’ll Take A Step Back by Sir Phillip Potier-Jones

I walked for what had seemed a mile

Upon what seemed a lonely isle

I looked and saw it wasn’t

So I took a step back

I took a long drive to my home

And smile at glance my garden gnome

I saw my neighbors had their own

So I took a step back

Why must we all be the same

It ruins each and every name

Until we are ourselves again

I’ll take a step back

Awesome poem, Sir Phillip. I love the message. 🙂

The Poetry Corner featuring Vic Tomlinson

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner! Please join me in welcoming Vic Tomlinson! 🙂

Fear by Vic Tomlinson

It was midnight

and someone was knocking

at the door.

I was in bed,

but had not gone

to sleep yet.

I heard them knocking

a second time.

My heart was pounding

and my skin was clammy.

I was afraid to answer.

I finally got up

and tiptoed to

the front door.

I peaked

through the glass,

but it was hard to see.

I slowly opened

the door.

Someone was standing

there with a hood

over their head.

They slowly turned

around to face me.

It was a neighbor

from across the street.

He said his wife

was quite sick,

and that his car

wouldn’t start.

He asked if I would take them

to the emergency room.

I was glad to help them

and relieved that it

wasn’t a burglar.

Unfortunately, fear can paralyze

your thought processes.

 

Awesome poem, Vic. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
