Boomer’s Thoughts “Writers’s Block”

I had originally titled this “Breakin’ the Block”. I have to admit that I actually wrote this while on vacation in Colorado. I was looking through some of my notes and saw it sitting there. Immediately I knew I had to get it in here. The first thing I did was to come in to my archives and make sure I had not posted it already. I was pretty sure I hadn’t. Based on the fact that when I post something I hand write, I will toss it our right away. Since it was still here I must not have written it in to my blog. Anyway here goes:

“Breakin’ the Block” This is a subject that has been discussed on numerous blogs. The best way to break writer’s block, is change your circumstances. this does not have to be done in dramatic fashion. It may be something as simple as stepping away from the typewriter/computer. Getting out of the environment you are in, and into a different one. I had done the dramatic, I left town to get away for a few days. (I was actually gone for two weeks).

What I was getting at is that all of a sudden the thoughts came pouring out of my head. Like water from a fire hose. Of course a lot of them came to me while I was driving. I suppose I could have pulled off onto the shoulder and written them down. I had a feeling this would have drawn more attention than I wanted. Which was none. I was not worried at the time. I felt the way things were going the ideas were going to come back. As a matter of fact a lot of them just stayed with me. I had no real distractions other than the road signs. So it was easy to maintain a thought or two.

The next time you have writer’s block I suggest a little trip. You don’t have to go two states over. Maybe just out to the country for some fresh air. If you already live in the country, go into the city and drink in the sights and sounds. Watch the people and run your ideas off of that.

Whatever you do I wish you luck, happy writing, hopefully we will see you on the newsstands.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
