Writer’s Block

I have introduced myself as a person who loves writing. I love literature. I love the whole cacophony of words in the universal art of communication.
But lately (as in months), I haven’t been able to produce an original piece of writing that I can actually acknowledge as satisfactory. I am out of ideas, also initiative, to create a piece that I can be proud of. It’s really very annoying.
So can I call it “writers block”? The reason why this question arises is that I find it too early for myself to be considered a writer. I mean, have I made any novels? Have I had my writings published in any newspapers or magazines? Have I ever won any writing competitions? It’s quite an embarrassment.
It’s not like I haven’t made any plans. I have a concept for a novel. I have an outline for a documentary. I have a plot for a short story. And poems just keep writing themselves in my mind. What is lacking is the consistency and perseverance to execute those plans.
I am sure that what I’m experiencing isn’t an uncommon "syndrome”. I just don’t know what to call it. So here I am, just for the sake of writing, writing something because I cringe at the thought of the neglect that my poor blog has suffered.
I hope I cross over this limbo very soon, because the it has made my mind scrawny. Ignorance and neglect is consuming, whereas words are food.
I have been through a lull and it’s time to be refreshed and rejuvenated!
Keep spirited!
