"...writer's block slaps the sh*t out of you"
Just when you thought you've gotten back on the saddle and are ready to embark on a new journey, writer's block slaps the sh*t out of you.
I started blogging when I was 16-it's been 5 years give or take(if we count the first blog I had on blogspot)!!-, and I'm in a little disbelief that it's been this long. When I first started writing, I was so full of ideas, topics, and issues I wanted to discuss. They were mainly self-wellness posts, nonetheless, I had those posts ready to go at any given moment. Now that I'm a seasoned blogger and I have a little bit more direction, my thoughts aren't as spontaneous and in so being, writers block hits me all the time.

When I listen to music I can visualize a place, the time, what I'm wearing, the people around, the food, the weather, the conversation, the mood, and the overall ambiance-Synesthesia. I often ask people around me when a certain song plays "where are you when you listen to this song?" As soon as my mind has processed all these elements, I write them down and then I carry out the vision. From the developed photos, I'll tell the story. Just like that, the feeling of being in this sunken place of un-inspiredness, vanishes.
