Ok, technically I don’t have writer’s block. I was perfectly able to write 1000 words this weekend, just not in one post. So I have a bunch of half finished drafts that aren’t full posts.
Instead of fighting this and squeezing hard on my writing muscles, I decided to go with it and highlight some other people that didn’t have writer’s block.
Check out some great posts from around the web.
Some of my favorite reads and view of late.
Christmas in Antarctica – Ali’s Adventures
Check out my friend Ali’s site and her beautiful pictures of one of the most infrequently visited places, Antarctica.
The Crossroads of Travel and Materialism – Traveling Savage
Keith’s posts are, for me, always inspiring and thoughtful. Check out the rest of his site as well. This specific post resonated enough that a response to it is one of my half-finished posts.
When the Traveler gets Mistreated – Suzy Guese
Bit of a rant about being mistreated just for being a foreigner. In addition to the article there is some really interesting discussion in the comment threads about reasons for this and ways to avoid it.
Adjusting to Life as an Expat – The Brink of Something Else
This is Camden’s landing page for a series of interviews she did of expats around the globe. There are some really great stories in there. I was happy to be asked to do one as well.
Balancing Freedom and Stability – A Dangerous Business
A bit of self-promotion as well here. This is a guest post that I did for Amanda at A Dangerous Business. Take a look around her site after you read the article. There is a lot of good writing there too.

Please go read these, some nice writing and some really fine people behind these links. I know I’ll get through the hurdles. Like I said, I did manage to write; just not enough on one subject to make a post.

You’re welcome, it was a great post. Look forward to your follow-up and hope to finish mine as well.

Will definitely have a look as some of these look interesting. By the way, there’s no such thing as “writer’s block.” All writers have struggle getting the words out some days. It’s part of the process. You’ll get through it. 🙂

Cheers! I appreciate the kind inclusion of my travel and materialism post. I think I've got a follow-up developing in my head. Oy. 🙂
