Make It Happen Thursday

Welcome to Make it Happen Thursday!

This is the day when all members of the Go Dog Go Cafe community come together to tidy up odds and ends as we near the end of the week.

We welcome suggestions to combat writer’s block because it can happen to the best of us. We encourage you to share your ideas in the comments below or leave a link to a post from your own blog on the subject of writer’s block.

Also, all members of the Go Dog Go Cafe are invited to introduce a Poet or Writer they enjoy reading. Just drop a link to promote a poet/writer you appreciate and a brief explanation of why you think they are special is welcome.

We feel sharing ideas along with sharing the works of other writers will benefit all of us.

Here are a few helpful comments from last week’s contributors –

drtanya@saltedcaramel I have yet to experience any real Writer’s Block since I don’t (in my opinion) get enough time for writing or blogging.
However, here is a tip I find useful if I get stuck with any task: start to do something different or take a break, you’ll come back refreshed.

Naughty Netherworld Press and Readers Roost (@readersroost)I wrote about how writing for submissions only rather than concentrating on self-publishing was sucking the joy out of my work using a messed-up English fairy tale as a metaphor.

  1. Hi Eugenia, I’m definitely an expert on writing, and overcoming the mysteries of writers block is hard … but I like to keep it simple, and look at the small things that are around you … hmmm .. this poem of mine below, might explain what I’m trying say ..

    “Sharpen Those Pencils”

    I like to write with a 2B lead pencil
    I enjoy the earthy feel of wood in my fingers
    And the soft touch of carbon upon paper

    During sharpening time, my mind ponders
    About the origins of those timber shavings
    And the history behind the carbon slithers
    These tiny trival objects all evoke thoughts
    Then the thoughts instigate words in my mind
    And simply like that, my writing process begins

    I never retire without my note-pad nearby
    And a lead pencil as my trusty writing scribe
    Sometimes heavy, other times light
    A necessary sword to fight off a dark night
