Overcoming Writer’s Block in Blogging with Poetry.

I’m at one of those points where I’m not allowed to write about the stuff that inspires me (yet), but what I can write about isn’t inspiring a new angle. So instead, here’s a lighthearted little blog on the subject of overcoming writer’s block…

What do you do if you want to write, but can’t seem to get the words out? Try writing about a different subject in a different format, such as poetry. Here’s my attempt to get past a recent case of writer’s block with three different kinds of silly poems and a rap song

A Haiku

Blathering blather –
Nothing coherent to say.
Need inspiration!

A Limerick

A blogger lays sleepless in the night
Wondering whatever could he would write.
Could some muse up above
Please throw him some love?
Or, at least do their job: shed some light?

Wordless, Frustrating
Squeezing, Forcing, Nothing
“Try writing a Poem”
Relief!

The Start of a Rap Song

Yo! Up all night. Cannot write, Not a slight.
Yo! Words, they flow very slow. Need Merlot!
Write a song. Sing along. Nothing’s wrong!
Tallyho! Here we go! Start the show!

Change up your usual writing format to reinvigorate creativity, or at least to have some fun off topic.

Your feedback: if you survived my silly poetry thus far, should I attempt a sonnet?
