Dear Writer’s block,

It’s me, your prisoner. You’ve held me captive for almost two months and I’m using this medium to remind you that I’m still here, held in an agonizing sequence of unending torture because you won’t let me write. It’s not easy you know? When you’re not able to be consistent with your work. I know you can’t relate because you consistently snatch creative souls and drain creative juices for fun. But abeg, I wasn’t born to be a prisoner and I’m tired. I deserve freedom too. I didn’t even do anything wrong so what kind of captivity is this?

At first, I just thought my brain went on holidays and would be back soon but after three weeks, I knew it had to be you. You didn’t even deny it. Instead, you came to gloat. You’ve been deriving joy from the fact that I cannot write my thoughts and ideas down. What did I do?


Dear Ruona,

First and foremost, you’re rude. If you want to beg me, can’t you beg properly? Is it because I’ve not taken away your will to write that you’re here, speaking big English?

You’ve been enjoying this prison since. Other people that were taken captive after you have been released and it’s now you’re realizing that you’ve been subjected to an agonizing torture for almost two months?


Dear Writer’s block,

Please forgive my lack of manners. What I should have said is that I am sorry for whatever it is I may have done to offend you and if you don’t mind, I’d like to ask for my freedom.

I am pleading for mercy. I don’t want to be here anymore. All I want to do is write. It would mean a lot to me if you could release me from this torture and I promise, I won’t bother you again.


Hey guys!

How did you overcome it?

How’s the lockdown treating you?

Did you miss me as much as I missed you?

Please gist me in the comment section below!! 💜

    Writer’s block?? The only thing I write is exams, and may that writer’s block never locate me in that situation.

  2. Ah the dreaded writer’s block has got you too.. it’s cuz the lockdown isn’t letting you explore enough, no exploration equals no drive to write stuff down.. You can get over it by doing new different kinda stuff (could be different kinda movies, songs, routine, people…) for fresh ideas and inspirations.

  3. First of, I am glad you are back. Getting off the web of writer’s blog ain’t easy at all. As long as you’re a writer, it will definitely come one way or the other and leave when it pleases.
    I get rid of writer’s blog by simply reading my previous post, reading random post on social media, see some intelligent movies, listen(not hear) to good music and read other people’s blog. This way, I get motivated to start writing once again.
    Although, my first write up while trying to get rid of writer’s block usually get messy but I got cool people to help me edit it and viola! We are back on track! You should try these helpful tips too.

  5. First and foremost 🌝, i’m glad that you’re back 😭😭. i missed you 🥺. I love this post so much.
    Writer’s block is very common amongst us tbh. Sometimes you just question yourself why it is all happening to you, but you can’t avoid it. I listen to music, read books and read other people’s blog post to get the motivation to write again and it doesn’t work at times, but you just have to try hard 😔.
    This lockdown is really helping me a bit sha, i started learning a new language. I can’t wait for it to end so i’ll go out and see my friends 😭😭.

    1. Thank God you said ”It doesn’t work at times. I’d been waiting for someone to say this! I missed you too, boo.
      I’m learning a new language too and you’ve basically spoken my mind.
      Thank you, Mo. 💜

  6. Omo, I thought I was the only one experiencing writer’s block o. Since this COVID- 19 break, abi lockdown. That thing is so frustrating. It renders me helpless. At times, i’d think of how to start a sentence or i wouldn’t even know how to write. It’s so painful. My diction and vocabulary have been embarrassing me since this lockdown started o
