Not Writer’s Block… Writer’s Overload

Another Writer’s Struggle

Grace Bianco


By Grace K. Bianco

Everyone has heard of writer’s block, but what about the complete opposite of it?

Written in the back of my brainstorm notebook: “Grace’s Book of Everything and Nothing”

I have never heard a name for it. So for the purpose of this blog, we are going with “Writer’s Overload”.

This is something I struggle with. I have so many ideas, and I get burnt out from it. I never know which blog to publish the idea on. I never know if I should write out this idea or that idea first. If I come up with an idea, I have to hurry and write it down. I will forget it by a new idea quickly after if I don’t.

I have about five different note tabs on my phone with the title “Blog Ideas”. I have a notebook with various pages full of ideas. I am chaotically organized, but it’s because my mind never stops brainstorming.

This sounds like a good thing. I have so many topics to write about, but the only problem is I have multiple places I could either post or submit the blog to. There’s other blogs who like getting submissions. There’s various places online to submit writing. On top of that, I have TWO blogs that I try to keep up with. My medium blog and my more personal,, blog are always an ongoing debate in my head. Should I put equal time and effort into them both? What topics do I post on this one or that one?

When I get an opportunity to write somewhere else, I put that as number one priority in my work (obviously?? lol.) I am not into outlines. I quickly brainstorm what I want to say and how I want to conclude it. I try to come up with a title first, and work from there. I write as much as I can in one sitting. I do not like taking breaks. I feel like my mind is a constant stream of ideas, and I will mess it up with a break. Should I put all of my focus into my assignment or do I need to keep posting?**

This then gives me a raging headache. My mind is bursting with ideas. I am writing multiple things at one time. Oh and did I mention I have to keep up with social media? Post here and post there, but don’t forget to share anything slightly exciting about your life to keep your audience engaged.

Should I write another book? I already did it once, but maybe a different topic or a different…
