Writers Block

It isn’t something I usually suffer from. In fact it’s usually the opposite but these last few weeks have seen my brain go on holiday.

I’ve got plenty of time to catch up with blog writing and campaign creation but I just can’t get started. In fact apart from the Shadowrun game I hope to get going withing the next few weeks the only gaming idea I have in my head has been a rerun of a game from 10 years ago. I don’t seem to have an original thought in my head at the moment.

In the past I’ve followed a few friend advice on writers block and just tried to write through it. I waffle and procrastinate but I just can’t get anything typed or scrawled out to get through the rubbish. I’ve got three topics on the go for this site along with a major change and I can’t get anywhere with them.

So you do my fellow GM’s break that blockage on thier creative flow?

    Well… I gave up gaming for about fifteen years. That’s probably not the best solution, though.

    Yeah that is a little extreme… :p

  3. Restless says:

    True. It was extreme burnout, though, coupled with the fact that the group I was running splintered suddenly.

    I still struggle with it. I keep wondering if I want to get fully back into the hobby, or do something I’d consider “more productive” like pursue electronics or write more code on my own time.

    That’s kind of what happened to us. Our gaming group exploded one night in the pub and then I had kids. It all went a little pear shaped but gradually we’re getting it back together.
