Unblocking the Writer's Block

“I can’t write.” We have all said this at one point or another.  Perhaps it is because of certain events that have happened. Maybe you are dry out of ideas. I won’t deny that I have complained like this many times before. I lose all hope. My ideas die. For weeks I do not touch a pen. This condition is the Writer’s Block.

Yes, the Writer’s Block: the old enemy of literature. But how can you solve it?

Temptation: A Short Story


A pit of milky, frothy lava oozed up from the endless caverns of the earth. It glowed red as though it were a sunset, and if that color had been in the sky, it would have been termed beautiful. Now, though, it was terrifying.

A man stood near to the edge of the pit. He could see the venomous flares coming from deep down in the depths, and they seemed to mesmerize him. He was spellbound by their glistening colors.

In his one hand, he carried a Book. He had been told that this Book was the guide to the true Life. He simply had to read and follow its commands to enjoy life and peace for everlasting. But today, as it had been for the past few weeks, his book was at his side, unread and unheeded.

Now he took a step nearer to the pit. An almost magnetic pull drew him closer.
