Breaking Up With Writer’s Block

The Writing Prompt Boot Camp:  Day 1


It’s time for you and Writer’s Block to part ways. Write a letter breaking up with Writer’s Block, starting out with, “Dear Writer’s Block, it’s not you, it’s me …”

Dear Writer’s Block,

It’s not you, it’s me.  You see, I really can’t live with you any longer.  You are smothering me and I can never seem to be myself when I am around you anymore.  It’s time I let my creativity flow through my fingertips and onto the computer screen.  I am tired of looking at blank pages and getting nowhere with my stories and poems.

I’m sorry, but I can’t say that I will even miss you.  I’ve felt this way for quite a long time and don’t know why I haven’t tried to break away sooner.  I guess I was scared of not having you as an excuse any longer for why I wasn’t writing anything.  But I think it is time for us to move on from each other.

I’m certain you will be able to find someone else whom you can be happy with for a time.  Good luck to you.  Have a wonderful life.
