I wake up in a cold sweat
and rushed breath
slowly drinking in the mundane reality unlike the one I had just left
what I mean to say is, I'm dreaming of the black half moons again
they lay on a sea of white stretched as far as the eye can see
they cracked me open and I'll never be the same
something's different about tonight but I can't quiet place it
December feels like a day gone stale or a hug unwanted
my dreams aren't about Layla anymore, but they're because of Layla

How to get over writer's block
So you鈥檙e sitting here on Tumblr with a blank document in the background, hoping that this app will give you the inspiration you need to start writing. Head鈥檚 up: it probably won鈥檛, but it did give you this post!
Whether you鈥檝e started your story and are stuck on a chapter, or haven鈥檛 got a single idea, these tips might help you!
1 - You鈥檝e got ideas, you鈥檝e got a plot, and maybe you have a couple of scenes already鈥攜et you've come to a dead-end.
As writers, we have the awareness at all times that other people will read our work, and for many鈥攑articularly new writers鈥攖his can cause a lot of intimidation.
If you鈥檙e struggling with what words to write, how to phrase your thoughts, and if you鈥檙e constantly erasing what you鈥檝e written, this is probably your problem.
How to get over it: this is the hardest block to overcome because it鈥檚 completely internal. We hear it from famous authors all of the time: "The secret to overcome writer鈥檚 block is just to write"鈥攖his is where that applies. You have the material you need to write your scene, so really, the only thing blocking you is you.
Remember, this is a first draft鈥攏o one but you will see it. These sentences you keep erasing are better than nothing and as a writer, you have the skill to fix them. As uncomfortable and unhelpful-sounding as it is, you just need to get the words out. Write absolute nonsense if you must, you can fix it after, because writing nonsense sparks better ideas.
Another issue here is encountering a scene that you鈥檙e struggling to write.
I'll be honest, giving up is the best option.
Forget about writing the scene the way you鈥檝e been trying to write it, and k*ll that one sentence you鈥檝e been trying to fit in somewhere鈥攊t鈥檚 holding you back. Instead, try writing your scene differently.
Change the POV, change the time of day, the weather; change the tone; change the characters鈥 moods. Filter what the message of the scene is, and find a different way to convey it.
If you鈥檙e stubborn and really want to use the scene that you鈥檝e been constantly back-tracking on (we鈥檝e all been there), try these 3 different ways to start it: narration, dialogue, description.
2 - You鈥檝e got ideas, you鈥檝e got a plot, and you鈥檝e not started.
This problem goes hand in hand with the previous one, only you鈥檙e stuck on the first scene of the first chapter. How should you start your story?
There are many ways to write a book and not everything works for everyone, but this tip will give you the foundation you need to start.
Find your focus.
Sort through all of the information you want to give the reader at the beginning of the story, and pick the element that鈥檒l make them want to read to chapter two. Which part of your story is the most unique and special? Do the characters stand out, is there an event happening? Is the place strange?
Choose one focus and push that forward in the first chapter.
If the focus is a character, put them in a situation where their personality will shine the most; if the focus is an event, use each character, object or element to emerge the reader in it. If you have an interesting location, work that into chapter one.
There are many writing techniques you can use to start a first chapter, one of which is choosing a focus, so I鈥檒l make a post on it soon that highlights what these techniques are and how to use them correctly!
3 - You鈥檝e got an empty head and no ideas what-so-ever.
Ah yes, the nagging urge to write but no inspiration. You鈥檝e listened to music, you鈥檝e look at prompts, and your head is still as empty as a balloon.
To write, you need material to work with. Don鈥檛 try to come up with a whole story all at one, you most likely won鈥檛 get anywhere. Start small!
Create a character.
What is your favourite time period? What鈥檚 your favourite age for a character? What traits do you want to give them? Give them unique and special features that will make them more real to you. Give them scars鈥攚here did they come from? Give them a wild fashion sense. Give them a hatred for chipmunks. Create a character that you know enough about to have a world build itself around them.
Start with the generic features of that character like gender, age, race; and hone in on the smaller details like their preferred way to sit.
Choose a genre.
This seems so obvious but it鈥檚 something many of us don鈥檛 actually think about. What kind of story do you want to write? What could you create that you鈥檝e not seen anywhere else? Do you like Ghosts? Kissing? Lesbians? Write a a story with all three! Why not put the lesbians in an Edwardian house owned by a rich banker from Dorset? We write because we enjoy it. Remember that. Take what you love and turn it into a story.
I hope these tips helped you!

You know what鈥檚 romantic? Not soulmates or twinflames. Not 鈥極ur love story is written in the stars.鈥 Or 鈥楾he Universe parted skies for us.鈥 Not someone telling you, 鈥榊ou鈥檙e my destiny. It鈥檚 the Divine鈥檚 will for us to be together.鈥
But rather, 鈥淚 choose to be with you. Through hell and fire. Through blood and storm. And I鈥檒l choose you and keep on choosing you in every fucking lifetime in every universe cause you鈥檙e mine. Fuck the stars. Fuck fate. I don鈥檛 care if my 鈥榮oulmate鈥 walks by or the Universe decides to bring along someone better for whatever reason. I don鈥檛 want better, I want you. You鈥檙e my destiny because I chose you dammit.鈥
鈥淪tar-crossed lovers? Doesn鈥檛 matter. I鈥檒l bring the Heavens to your feet so we can walk on clouds together to our paradise.鈥

Estoy demasiado agotada, mi d铆a a d铆a se basa en estudiar y estudiar; es tan decepcionante no poder descansar, ni tampoco estudiar porque tengo tantos pensamientos que me desconcentran y me hacen sentir frustrada, al final de la noche me deprimo porque siento que me faltan cosas por hacer, no duermo porque me siento mal al pensar que estoy perdiendo mi tiempo.

and you made me feel like
I wanted to crawl out of my skin
into a body that was easier to love
a personality that fit yours better
a mind that thought like yours
a soul that was less damaged
I want out
I want out of here
I want out of this body
I want out of this life

鈥淚 don鈥檛 know how to write love letters. But I wanted to tell you that my whole being opened for you. Since I fell in love with you everything is transformed and is full of beauty... love is like an aroma, like a current, like rain. You know, my sky, you rain on me and I, like the earth, receive you.鈥
-Frida Kahlo, Letter to Jos茅 Bartoli (October 1946)-
Because we are art now, as to ourselves, each other...
