Writers Block 2.0

I am becoming increasingly convinced that writers block can occur both when you don`t want to write and when you have tons of material to write. I have so much I need to be doing tonight; I have college papers due, deadlines for three articles I need to write, and I am trying to get my book ready to publish as an E-book.  I have a lot of material and several good ideas for some of the writing I need to do, yet, I can`t seem to move.
I think sometimes my mind moves much faster than I type. I have never been one to use home row when I type, but I still manage about 60 wpm.  My mind spirals with ideas, sentences, words and points of view that I know would work, and yet, here I sit.
I am headed out to Memphis TN this weekend for the holiday, and I so look forward to being on the road.  I am trying to finish all my writing commitments before I leave town so I can just let my brain chill.  I will, of course, bring my laptop just in case because invariably I will hear something or see something that will motivate me to write.
I hope you all have a great holiday weekend, God bless, Scott

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. ******** ~ "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~
