Just a little piece I wrote several days ago about having writer's block that I wrote to try to help me get in the writing mood. This is not meant to be any good piece of writing really but it did work for me and I guess I just present it as an example. Right after I wrote it, I started on a short story because of something that came to mind.

I have brain freeze.  Writer’s block.  Call it whatever you want, but I have it. 

For a few days now.  I read extensively.  I write notes and beginning phrases in my little notebook - when i’m out and about and a catchy phrase or idea hits me.  Then later, when I sit to write - blank. 

Nothing else comes, something to build around the phrase or idea, nothing comes.  I write when the emotion hits me, to write, as i’ve said before.  The pure, raw emotion hasn’t seemed to come easily for days now.  I don’t know why.  I feel it.  I think of it.  I jot it down in bits and pieces in my notebook.  But I can’t get it all pulled together for some reason.  It will pass, I know, soon hopefully. 

 To get through it, I must write, I know.  Anything.  Just write myself out of it.  The brain freeze.  Writer’s Block.  I write and soon the emotions and thoughts will come out in effective phrases.  Until then, I will write.  Something.  Just write.
