A few weeks ago, I joined Piptalk, to do something about this two year writers block I've been going through.

When I first came here I was really looking forward to posting up some stuff, but so far I haven't been able to get around to doing it. Worse after being here, so many authors have a lot of great stuff, that quite frankly I am just plain intimidated against posting.

I don't have much computer time anymore, so that pretty much rules out writing(I have tendonitis, because of which I can't hold a pen for longer than 5 minutes before my hand locks up).

I have my personal archives, but I dunno if I should even bother posting it up, as it is my old stuff. I was hoping to get in some new stuff, but whenever I have something on the edge of my brain, I get distracted, or something happens and I lose the moment.

I can't store my archives on the computer as it is a shared computer-and an old quirky machine which ends up being reformatted weekly, which would cause me to lose anything I save on this thing, at that.

While I am not objected to posting up my older material, I was really hoping to formulate some new stuff if I could only get the time to do so.

Anyone have any ideas, or suggestions, about anything I've just said?

Writers blocks can take along time to get through, speaking from experiance. But here it can also be very intimidating if you let it. Just reading things here and I'm scared to even try posting. But if it is your old stuff that you put on the site I'm sure that it will be treated as good quality and will get very good remarks. Keep trying and i hope your situation gets better.
