I just want to tell you guys that I am having the worst creative block I have ever had blogwise.  I have been writing practically nonstop since June of 2007 and I think I’ve hit a brick wall. This block is actually affecting another creative project I am doing with someone else too and it is really frustrating.

I hope you will understand and stick around if I take a day off here and there to try and kickstart myself to be motivated again. I think I need a fresh perspective and some time away from the computer to clear whatever is cluttering my mind.

    for heavens sake, do you REALLY think if you took a break we would stop coming by? Your site is like a chef owned restaurant, worth the wait, and we like everything on the menu. You take a break, well I’ll just keep driving by until you open up again.
    good luck with the block, and go enjoy yourself eh?

    Well said, Paul. Take a needed break, be gentle with yourself, and your readers will keep looking in and wishing you well.
    Strength for the journey.

    Take a break, take 10! The net will still be here when you get back.

    Gigi I second what already said…I found (it works for me at least) that stepping out helps a lot!!

    Enjoy your time off!

    Blogging can be really tiring sometimes. And as you do it seriously (I mean, not just chatting around about your life), it can become exhausting.
    So take a break, get outside, go to the museum, shopping or take a walk in the forest or anything you wanna do. Just listen to your mood.
    And, most af all, take your time.
    No worry, we’ll be here.
    :o)

    Really, truly, take care of yourself and do whatever it is that nurtures your creative self. We’ll still be here when you get back!
