So the Reader on WP has been pissing me off —> commenting on some people’s posts has been a bitch where you have to literally GO ON TO THE BLOGGERS BLOG and comment on there then return to the reader because the reader won’t post the comments. #TemperamentalMuch???

AND PEOPLE ARE GETTING SHOVED INTO MY SPAM FOLDER. THANK YOU WORDPRESS. . . SO HELPFUL. They are NOT spam thank you WORDPRESS. THEY ARE MY FWENDS. 

SO MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM. BLURGHBLEH.


Also, tbr gets turned to “tar”. um. no. So I just seem even weirder because tbr is always written TBRRRRR so that it doesn’t change it to freaking TAR. THIS HAS BOTHERED ME FOR SO LONG.CAN IT DIE PLEASE.

imma just rebel against the autocorrect for a sec –> tbr tbr tbr tbr tbr tbr HA TAKE THAT!

Also. I’m on a book buying ban. (WHICH SUCKS. WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF?)I haven’t even bought that many, but for ME it feels like a lot. And I honestly need to try and get some self control. (LOL NO I HAVE NONE)

Also, I bought, and am now reading, The Young Elites. This book has been on my TBR since 2015, when I first joined bookstagram. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve got to page 90 and boom. I can’t read it anymore. I have no idea what’s going on. I had the same thing with A Gathering Of Shadows. . . hgehgreghg WHAT’S HAPPENING TO ME. . . ???”>XRMHREBEKRBKREUGBEIUVEHFBEUGRSIYBFHDJN.

Okay, *breathe out* calmmmmmmm .. . 

I JUST AM NOT FINDING THE MOTIVATION TO READ ANYMORE.

PLEASE DON’T BE A SLUMP OH GOSH THIS IS TOTALLY A SLUMP.

God I wish that I was participating. WITH SCHOOL and everything I’m just not sure that I’m going to have the time.

IT DOESN’T HELP THAT EVRY TIME THAT I WRITE SOMETHING I FEEL LIKE IT’S SILLY AND CLICHÉ AND THAT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE SET ON FIRE and idk why but for the past year I haven’t been able to come up with any solid ideas, or what even THE AIM of the character is going to be and WHAT stops them.

I just get snippets of scenes and it’s so INFURITAING BECAUSE I CAN’T SO ANYTHING WITH THEM AHFSDUGBSKGBSK. 

I literally feel like I CANNOT WIRTE ANYTHING WELL . . . APART FROM BLOG POSTS. . .

I CAN’T WRITE I CAN’T WRITE I CAN’T WRITE I CAN’T WRITE. 

I’ve had writer’s block FOR SO LONG I’M SO ANNOYED. KERJGBJHEGUGEW This hosntely sucks beause I LOVEE WRITING AND developoing ideas KJFBE;GREG but my brain is just. . . idk missing??

H a,  n o

This isn’t another Hiatus-scare like this post. . . THIS IS REAL LIFE.

Also. The “dreaded” hiatus. . . Ju actually wrote a post about this topic the other day and [it was fab go see it here]

Is it really that dreaded??

Well .. . I’m not officially going on hiatus, because I’m going to play this by ear, as I have NO IDEA what my school schedule is going to look like because I have my first set of mocks this term, and I have up to 3 exams per day and really need to try and pass these (even though they’re mocks) and I really want to do well in them and see what level I’m performing at so that I can improve and perform to my best ability later on.

And also, at the moment I have absolutely NO motivation or acutual IDEAS for any blog posts and i sort of just want to dissolve into a sad puddle of despitarion on the floor and weep. . .

I don’t really know what I’m doing anymore and I’M REALLY STRESSING OUT RIGHT NOW.

  1. NANO IS KILLING ME!! I’m trying to balance writing with school and guess what? I’m failing. lol. Anyways, I used to have writer’s block since I hadn’t read in a while. But as I can see, you read pretty much everyday so I don’t know how to help you. Anyway, loved this post!

  2. Omg this was such a funny post because you were so RANTY and I love rants but on the other hand I’m so sorry for you???? It must suck to not be able to read even if you want to UGH reading slumps are the worst 😦 and I can SOOO relate to your writing problems! Before NaNo, I’d always get ideas for scenes here and there but nothing concrete plot- or character-wise and it was FRUSTRATING to say the least! One day I just sat down and tried figuring things out until I had at least the basics of both plot and character—and it worked! I feel a lot less lost now (although I do think my writing is trash lol). I hope you can out of this writing and reading fun sooooooon ❤️

    1. I’m glad you found it amusing ahaha!!! I LOVE A GOOD RANT.

      DHGBGVRE reading slumps can die. like honestly WHY DO THEY NEED TO EXSIST. Buttttt I’m slowly killing it with Blue Lily Lily Blue #victoriousLu.

      YOUR WRITING IS NOT TRASH NEVER SAY THIS!! GRELEGER but why is writing so difficult sometimes. Like I’ve wanted to do Nano for the past two years and this year BUT GBKJGDG I cannot outline, like I just haven’y learnt how to do that in a way that’s best for me yet and I don’t really want to smush finding how it works best for me into a really stressful month! (if that last bit made sense I’d be surprised!)

      thank you so much Jackie!!! ❤ ❤

  3. Oh no no nooo I’m so sad to see you like this 😦 😦 I hope your writing block will be over soon and that you’ll have all the motivation to write, because you are a FABULOUS WRITER AND YOU CAN DO THIS!! ❤ ❤ Sending you all the love xxx

  4. I have the EXACT same problem with my writing. I just hate the idea of it being cliche but the best advice I can offer is that it always seems cliched when it’s reduced to the most basic stuff. Once you add in more details and really develop the motivations and intricacies of the story it will become less cliched. But also, because you read a lot most things seem cliche but to someone who reads less, or less of the genre you are writing, it is less cliche.

      1. Yes, I am participating in nanowrimo. I really want to overachieve and write A LOT but I am in my last year of high school and I have an exam block the first week of December so I am having to balance school and nano. How is nano going for you?

  6. Dude I will most definitely miss you if you go on hiatus, but TAKE ONE IF YOU NEED IT. School first. 💕

    And agahhag writer’s block is SO TOUGH to overcome but I think that just writing random scenes from random ideas could really help you??? The only way to defeat writer’s block is to write, and if you can’t write a novel, write little bits of different ones. OR POETRY. POETRY IS GOOD.

    And omg I hate you WHY DI YOU READ POSTS THROUGH THE READER THERE IS A BLOG DESIGN FOR A REASON AND THERE IS POST FORMATTING (THAT TAKES FOREVER) AND THE WP READER JUST RUINS IT SJSKSKKSKSKSKLFLDS.

  8. oh, honey, you really are working yourself out of your capacities!!! 😞😞 THIS WILL DRAIN YOUUU!!!!!!! I am soooo sorry the past month has been a mad ruckus race but tell you what, although I have decided to take part in NaNo, I too have no idea what to ACTUALLY write. There are, just like you said, fleeting scenes in my mind. NOTHING COHERENT AT ALL. So, I have just decided to write them.down and work around them. AND HEYY!! YOU ARE NOT A BAD WRITER. YOU ARE JUST…STRESSED. Happens to me ALL THE TIME. But DON’T YOU QUIT. You can work past this because YOU ARE SOOOO CAPABLE AND TALENTED. 😘😘❤❤

    And as for the reading slump, I AM ALWAYS IN IT THESE DAYS. 😂😂 So, I have decided to read short story anthologies, short novels, novellas instead for a few days just to get myself back in the form. Try that maybe? Start with Hemmingway’s The Old Man and The Sea. 😊 It is VERY short and satisfying. ❤❤

    And YOU DON’T EVEN NEEED TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR MOCK EXAMS. You are going OWN that shit. I PROMISEEEE!!!’😘

    SO GO AHEAD AND ROCK THIS MONTH!!!! 😁😉😉

    I’ll be waiting to hear ALL ABOUT IT. ❤❤❤❤❤❤

    ALL THELOVE AND HUGS AND CHOCOLATES AND SMOKIN’ HOT GUYS IN THR WOOORRRRLLLDDDD….😉

  10. Oh my gosh, the tbr – tar thing is SO ANNOYING!!!!! And sometimes I don’t even notice until it’s too late… I once posted a comment in which I complained about the size of my tar!!!!! BAD BAD AUTO-CORRECT!
    I’m not doing NaNo this year, as I have absolutely ZERO ideas, but I’m hoping to maybe participate next year.
