Writer’s Block

I was complaining to a fellow blogger the other day about the fact that I just cannot seem to sit and write a post at the moment.  I can think of titles for posts.  I start writing the first sentence…… and then nothing.  I have no more words.  I have had this problem for the last 2 weeks.  One of the reasons for my Bananas post last week – and that went down very well just by the way…….

So we then started debating whether we were entitled to use the term “Writer” and in turn if we were entitled to use the term “Writer’s Block“.

To be quite honest, I actually don’t know what entitles one to use the term “Writer”.  At what point are you considered a writer?  Is this after you have been published?  Is it after you have sold any of your works or made money from writing?  Or does it apply to wider audience such as bloggers?

We then started playing around and making up alternative words to use in place of writer’s block.

Eventually we had a short list of 3 or 4 words and we eventually agreed to use the term “Blogstipation“.

So today I thought I would brag about the fact that I have coined a new term.  And then I looked the word up in Google – and guess what – the phase has already been coined:

Taken from Urban Dictionary:
n. Inability to blog regularly
n. Inability to think of anything to blog about

  1. I have writer's block all the time lately. Writing a post is like cutting teeth. UGH. I will be glad when the A-Z is over and then I will be taking a break and regrouping. Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com

  2. If you write, you are a writer. I am a writer! I am also a golfer. Last week I shot a 108!It is a good word, you should get partial credit.

  3. Love the new word (heard it from you first :)) and it's definitely heading my way for true. Not sure how to define a writer, but if you blog on a regular basis then why not. After all, you are writing, unless you are just posting pictures.
