If Writers block is...

when you sit at your computer peer into it's screen, press a key, look about you, pull up a web site, look back at your page, get up and make a cuppa, look back at your page, write a few words, erase a few words, check instagram, look back at your screen, go to the loo, come back, press another key or two, pull up a 'how to get yourself out of writers block article on twitter, peer again at your sparsley worded page, make another cuppa, check your clock and realize that another 30 minutes has gone and your ten words down..sigh, sigh again deeply. yep I think I have it..everytime I try to write lately my mind wanders to everything but the task at hand..this Ive heard is a common phenonomen and has been how things have been for me of late..but my lately has been going on for quite some time..like months..and my inspiration tank has dried up..my bright ideas bubble has burst and my reading material consists of 'the barefoot investor' (excellent book btw) 'the happiness trap' and 'mindfulness 101' not really its title I just can't remember exactly, and its 4am in the morning and I'm in the kitchen and that book is somewhere in the pile of recently bought and never read books on my bedside table between 'how to stop worry before it makes you anxious' and 'how to order your day so you don't become anxious' where someone is sleeping and I don't want to wake them and make them anxious trying to find it..so back at writers block.. yep I think I might have it...
