I have had writer’s block for the last two years and I’m not sure why. I have been posting to Facebook everyday, but can’t seem to draft a complete essay. I’ve been over thinking this thing for the past few months and I’ve come to a conclusion. I guess its called an epiphany or an aha moment. Drum roll please. Writers write–period! So instead of thinking so much and making this complicated, I just need to write–period.

My 5th born , Curtiss Church, Jr., in whom I am well pleased.
Sundays have now become my family’s day of bonding. Each week, schedules permitting, my abbreviated family which currently consists of my husband, Curtiss, myself and our youngest son, Christopher, venture out to enjoy events going on in Hampton Roads, my new adopted home. Recently we ventured to the ocean front to enjoy the beauty of the beach, the houses that line the coast, and the wild life that is ever present. It was a wonderfully peaceful day!
This morning I decided to stop practicing insanity–that is, doing the same things but expecting different results. Instead of my usual ritual of waking up, peeing, going downstairs to my computer, logging onto Facebook, turning on the television and writing myself countless notes; I decided to revisit my blogs. What I found disturbed me greatly. It seems that several years passed since I posted a fresh idea. This fact has many implications. Where did this time go?
- I reflected briefly on what excuses I could offer myself that would be believable to me. The list was short. I decided to blame ‘writer’s block’. That seemed as good an excuse as any for my lack of motivation for written self-expression in over two years until I heard a small voice in my head and heart exclaim, “That’s bs, Vanessa! Writer’s write–period.
