I haven't been able to write a darn thing in months. I don't know why but the wrods have just stopped coming. It's really frusterating. With a writer's block I atleast normally can get somewords on paper and piece random thoughts together. But this has got to be like the uber form of a writers block cause I can't even do that now. Someone please give me some advise on how to get back my scared muse. I miss writing.

Do what most writers do.

Write a story about a writer who moves out of the city into the country because he has writers block and then horrible things start to happen to him/her.

You can go comedy or horror at that point.

I shall be waiting for these replies too, as my "muse" such as she is has been gone since I moved before Christmas.  I am not sweating it though, I read instead   It will come back when it is good and ready I think, or hope?

a good thing to do when your muse is missing, is to write about it.  Mine is missing too, by the way.  Here is my poem:

The Strapping of the Wench

In hiding place I found my muse
made of pewter air
breathed her in like cool and dark
a chocolate from the Frigidaire

My muse WAS there but she’s not fair
now she’s stuck in scenery of heart
between the tender nape of neck
and the garden afraid to start

She is part of the transformation
in movement out the door
the sound she makes cries free me
and then hold me evermore

Twirl she says in softest voice
to me with a evil wink
then lifts her pretty skirt off floor
and dances in my ink

I brush her off my shoulder
in her next whim then I find
she is flapping arms and darting tongue
in rhythm from behind

I’m tired of chasing after her
can’t she see I need a break
my words are screaming in my head
and what comes out now just seems fake

She jokes a lot when I am down
thinking she’ll get me laughing
but if I could catch that wicked wench
she would get a real good strapping

Then write.

This may sound silly to you all but....
Being a high school student, when we have writers block our teacher Mr. O makes us do a bubble chart. Start with the topic of story/poem *whatever it is your wanting to write* then branch out into the many different topics, sceneries, time periods etc. I dont know if that helps, but it's atleast worth a shot right? Good luck to you!

Thank all of you for your ideas. I think I have an idea of what I can do now.
