Open Thread: Should I Continue?

Hello dear readers!

This week I've been experiencing bad writer's block. I am debating whether or not I should continue with Love is All? If I do continue, what can I do to improve? Should I make it less real life? Should I change some of the foul language? What would you like seen done?

Thanks for answering and helping me, dear readers. 


  1. My dear gifted Jessica, you know the answer deep within your heart. We all, each one of us, has a God within that has the answers to all of the questions our lives and experiences pose.

    Spend some time with your inner self, that voice within that always tells you the truth. It knows.

    I warn you though; following the directions/instructions of your inner wisdom will not be easy. God doesn't demand the easy things of us; He often demands the most difficult, but know that following the road and path of our Father, the road He designs for us with his Love and Brilliant Wisdom, is the road holding for us the mightiest rewards.

    You know within. Spend some time in communion with your inner self. The answer is there within you.

    Love and blessings,

    Dr. Ni

  2. Writers block is terrible so I feel your pain. Maybe take a break for a little while... read more or do something different. When I do that, ideas will spark in my head and then I become excited to write more!
    I hope that advice helps. Good luck :)

  3. The best way out of writer's block is to write your way out of it, just anything at all, or so I've found. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    Ask yourself if you're done with your Love is All thing.
    It seems to me like you aren't anywhere near "done" because you're asking for feedback on whether to "make it less real life", which to me seems like it'd be a MAJOR re-write.

    I've read writers are NEVER done with anything, just stopping it at interesting places.

  4. No, I don't think you should stop writing "Love is All" or change it from its current format. If you have writer's block with something, the best thing to do is to take a break or write something different while you think of new material for the piece you were working on before. Sometimes I've written a load of material, got stuck, taken a break, then come back to write a load more.

  5. no dont stop writing, i like it. keep it real life because to me it makes it more interesting. about the foul language, real life consist of foul language so leave it in.

  6. Writer's block is the worst and is especially frustrating for us English majors when exceptional, consistent writing is always "expected." But, the way I see it is that we always get through it eventually! Anyway, I was personally very inspired by your "Love is All" piece... it's so real and intriguing (an eye-opener). You're truly an amazing writer! To improve/get more ideas, I would simply just take the time to reflect on what more can be said about it versus potentially trying to force anything. The language should absolutely stay, considering that it is a part of your unique style and makes it relatable. Good luck with everything; I definitely feel after reading your material that you'll prosper no matter what!
