writing from the heart...

hi all! have you experienced having a writer's block? i am a writer by profession. and with all modesty, i can say that i can write a single article (feature article) of about 2-3 pages in just 30 minutes. but there are also times that i can also stay before the computer and stare blankly at the screen for two straight days with only one paragraph already written. it is hard when i get this writer's block sometimes because my work is dependent on my writing ability. if i don't write, i don't get to work and i cannot submit my articles. but if i am not in the mood, no words would really come out, even if it is an interview story and i already have all the facts needed. but if i am in the mood, words flow freely and i can easily finish one article, even 3 articles in just one day. i think it is because writing is an art. it is not processed through a machine. the brain and the heart should be in sync before writing to flow. it comes from the heart. even if it is only a job. so i guess that is it...no wonder writing can't be forced. take care all and God bless you! happy mylotting! :D

I also write a lot and I find myself writing stories in less that 45 mins. I like the way it is and I write on Helium too to get some money. It is just a talent and one should always appreciate it.

i want to study from you. I also want to be a writer as you, though my poor English. I can’t express my mood clearly. And I can express it mostly. I like writing too. The word can out from my heart, not many man like my words. They think me a young boy. But I want to write that can earn myself. I don’t like my current job. You said writing must from the heart , so I must write every thing from my heart from now on. And I always stare at the computer. And my arm ways pain for my typing. So should have many rest for this work.
