I have had writer's block for some time. I was thinking about stopping writing all together. Wikinut saved me from not writing.

Wikinut Saved Me from not Writing

I have had writer’s block for a long time. I just have not been able to think of anything to write about these last couple of week. I have not even been that active on the sites that I write on. Not that there are many good writing sites these days. Wikinut is the main site. Wikinut has been the only site that I have been active on for a while.

These last couple of weeks I was thinking that I am done writing online for good. I thought maybe it was time to stop. Many sites are going down all over the place. I stopped making any real money with my writing over a year ago. It’s looking like writing online just isn’t worth it at all.

I stayed here at Wikinut because it was one of the best places. I could post everything here, short stories, poetry, and articles. Wikinut still seems like one of the only sites that it is still worth it. I like all of the people here as well.

First Writing Site I started Writing On

It seems kind of funny to me that Wikinut and Mylot were among the first sites that I started writing on, and they are among the few that are still around. Lately, I have been wishing that I hadn’t spent so much time writing for other sites. I wish I had posted most of my articles here. I have lost many of the articles that I have written because I didn’t save them and the sites I posted them on are gone now. Well, you live, and you learn.

I have decided to stay around. I will write when it comes to me. I like too many of the other writing to stop being on Wikinut. Things are still slow right now, but I know the ideas will start flowing in again soon.

Have any of you ever had times when you thought about not writing anymore?

You like ALL of the people you come across on Wikinut? That suggests there must be some that you haven't come across yet!

John, alright most of the writers that I have come across. I have run into a few that were not such nice people but there are far too many good people and writers to stop just because of one or two are should I say Not so nice.

Brendamarie, I'm very thankful that you've decided to stay with Wikinut. I really enjoy your writing and your friendship! Smiles to you today and always. I usually don't have writer's block but I do know that a lot of people do. I'm thinking maybe you just need to have a little quiet time drinking some tea. Possibly green or black or maybe even white. Your articles are very good and I really enjoy reading them. I'm sending blessings to you! I'd insert a smiley face but I don't know how!

You are what you co-create. You are where you want to be as that is your personal choice not some Illuminati spell although there are many satanists around who cast them for their dark personal gain.

I am glad you decided to stay on Wikinut. I enjoyed reading your work. I, too, sometimes have trouble writing because of the distractions and other things. I often take walks to keep my creative juices flowing. Congrats on the star page!!!

After I left Allvoices, Wikinut saved me from quitting my writer's job for pay.

I look forward to reading yours Brendamarie and I should have left my comments on almost all your posts.

I am only with Wikinut now. I was earlier with YCN and a while with Bukisa.

When I like one I stick with it through thick and thin! I interact with fellow writers and that gives me the boost. I do not know what I like more - 1. post articles 2. Comment on others 3. Respond to others' comments. I interchange to keep me going, find a firm footing - siva

We all go hot and cold at times, and let's face it to write an article does take time and effort.

We balance up the time with whether we think it is still worth it or not.

I have slowed down on my writing since when I first started, but the itch to write still comes to me from time to time.

thanks for the share brendamarie.

It is great that you found a steady source of inspiration...a writer who doesn't write will be miserable sooner or later...keep writing)
