Writer’s Block

Can I count the image above as a blog post?  I know, it’s more of an excuse, but I’m really struggling with my goal of writing two blog posts a month.  Even though I’m only a few posts in, I’m really beginning to understand why some students struggle with writing.  It can seem like such a daunting task!

So I guess this post will be about writer’s block.  I found this blog post to be very useful in finding some possible solutions.  Fear and Perfectionism are probably my two biggest obstacles.  I can definitely think of at least 100 excuses why I can’t write…not enough time, there’s nothing interesting to write about, the dishes need washed…

Alas, excuses won’t get me anywhere.  For now, I will be satisfied with the fact that I at least wrote something and remind myself of why I set a goal in the first place.  I want to become a better writer and I want to be able to empathize with students when they are struggling to write.

I’d love to hear any suggestions you have for writer’s block.  Leave a comment below!

    Thanks for keeping it real and letting us all know you’re working toward your goal and are a little stuck. I have a few ideas of things I’d love to hear about. Maybe one would work for you to write about.

    ***What’s it like to be a teacher, a teacher leader, a doctoral student, a mom, a wife and more. . . right now?
