Astrophil and Stella

Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite:
“Fool!” said my muse to me, “look in thy heart, and write.
~Sir Philip Sidney


And so the journey begins…

It’s summertime. I’m done exams, I have no school until September and all I have to do is work at my job, so you would think that I’d be able to sit down and finally get some writing done, eh? Ha! Like that will ever actually happen! Of course, now that I have the time to write I couldn’t come up with a bloody idea if my life depended on it. That’s always how it seems to be with me; I have the time, not a single idea appears… I don’t have the time, a million thoughts are bustling around inside my head. It’s so frustrating.

Well, now that that little rant is done, I guess I should probably make some introductions. I’m an aspiring writer working my way through university (half way done!). Writing is my passion and my life; without it I don’t know what I would do. I’m here on this wonderful blogging site because I have practically the worst case of writer’s block imaginable and I’m trying to get unstuck. Somehow I thought that I could achieve that by letting all the craziness in my head escape onto the page through words.

So this blog will be filled (hopefully) with all those thoughts and ideas trapped inside my head. Maybe it will be a recollection of some memories, maybe it will be a small snippet of something I’m working on, or maybe it will just be a bunch of complete gibberish. Whatever ends up being written down, I hope that it leads to that triumphant moment when I can scream up to the clouds “THE WRITER’S BLOCK IS GONE!!!!!”

Enough for now though. As per usual, my messed up writing brain has deprived me of the words I seek to continue writing this entry. So I shall end this off by saying just one thing: Please, writer’s block, be kind to me and go away soon. Thanks.
