AH! Writer’s block!

I would say “if you’re a writer, you’ve experienced writer’s block at some point,” but really, writing is such a healthy outlet that it spans far beyond just those of us who call ourselves “writers.”

So, chances are, you’ve experienced writer’s block whether or not you consider yourself a writer.

With that being said…isn’t it wonderful when someone provides us with writing prompts? Ideas to get our creative juices flowing, or at least get us pointed in the right direction?

That’s exactly what Margarita Tartakovsky does with one of her recent Weightless posts. Check it out, along with several other amazing Psych Central posts from the past few days.
