LOL! I was just thinking this same thing as I browsed through pages and pages of discussions and could not find a single one to post to. I realized that I'm wasting my time right now and need to take a break from this for a while. I think it's common, in fact it's happened to me several times. If I take some time away and do something else, it seems to renew the interest. And when you come back you should at least have some discussions that your friends have started that you can post in. Good Luck!

what a relief it is to see that i m not the only one!! hehehe.. yes i think its a good idea to take a break, but unfortunately, my mind had been so messed up and so confused, that the idea of takin a break dint strike me, i jus kept on lingering it, looking for topics, and when i got totally wacked out, i started off with this discussion..!! thanks for your response!

That's happened to me too. I've got bored over the same topic and repeated cheat response. But when I lost my interest I just log out and browse other site and when something interesting topics hit my mind then I go back here and post a discussion at the same occasion I find my mind working and able to reply some discussions. Just don't force yourself when you feel bored moment here.

i too often forget what i want to write I can go all day and then when i get to sit down at the computer I go totally blank. So when i am getting ready to get online i go relax a bit i may take a bath and eat my dinner first but then when i sit down i am sitting for at least an hour typing away.. write things down through out the day.. usually i get blocked if i am off work and dont go anywhere.. peopel are what give me my ideas. good luck

yes.i think that creative work can only be done with a free mind, and you need to move out, see people, observe things around you, it really helps in opening up the mind! cool! thanks for your response!

I haven't had writer's block yet...but I have experienced my eyes feeling dried out and my back stiff.

yeah, it really happens. you just have to be patient. i always check those in top discussions,as these suppose to be the best discussions and most of the time are interesting anyways so eventhough there's hundred of respnses to it i still respond. the next thing is i check are my friends' discussions, then check new discussions, sometimes it would take me an hour flipping pages and ive only responded to 2-3 people. and with starting discussions, at first i would force myself to always come up with discussions but they didn't turn out so well, so now i only start discussions only when i feel like it.

Just a month in and feeling the blahs here. I leave it open and go play Pogo or something. Alot of times I just can't write down and have it sound as it does in my head.

Well, that is so understandable. It gets that way sometimes. You just got to pick a discussion that is close to your interest and respond to it.
