Welcome back to Commaful's Advice Column! We have three letters to answer today, so here we go!
I've been having quite a bit of writers block these past few weeks, and it's really stressing me out. I've tried writing but my thoughts just refuse to cooperate with me....
I'm worried that people will get bored of my posts if I keep half-as*ing them, and I'm just really confused. What can I do?

Dear a confused writer,
Writer's block is the WORST! I get it. It sucks. And others understand that, too. Sometimes the best way to get ideas is to step away from the screen, keyboard, or paper and do something else.
Do art, music... whatever makes you happy. The ideas will start flowing, I promise you.
Breaks are awesome :) Also, I highly recommend reading (it'll help improve your writing and give you ideas) and listening to music.
Compile a playlist of songs that give you ideas or sparks something in your mind for other writer's block times! I hope this helps!
I have been recently noticing lot of Commaful creators young as ten to thirteen. People who are younger than me. I get messages where they try to talk to me.
I don't talk to them because I am concerned of the age difference. That I can get in trouble because I am older. I'm not old, old.
I am still somewhat young but old enough to be handling a lot of things on my own. I don't want to be rude by ignoring them or blocking them.
I have made comments that related to their posts or just trying to be nice. I don't know if that's the same scenario as the messages. But my question is, how do I deal with this politely.
Or does ignoring them work? I also forgot to include this in the big message before my question. But I have talked to a couple of people just because they had a similar interest.
Like a video game and I made sure to just stay on the video game topic. When they messaged me first and I made that choice to have a conversation. Just to be clear
Dear concerned writer,
I think the best thing to do is ignore them if you don't want to talk to them. If you don't feel comfortable talking to them, then maybe it's just best to not talk to them.
It may come off as rude, but it will be awkward for both you and the person you're talking to if you don't want to talk to them but are anyway. I think it's best to simply ignore them.
See there is a guy I really really like, and he likes me. However I'm not allowed to date (;-;). But he is really sweet and wrote a poem for me! <3 I really don't know what to do...
Is it ok to defy my parents for him...?
Between you and me, I'm not supposed to be dating anyone either lol. But honestly, if you really think he's the guy for you, then I'd say yes, it'd be alright to go against your parents.
As much as we all (should) love our parents, sometimes kids need to try things out on their own when they're ready, such as dating.
I do suggest to be cautious though, because if you're in a really good, happy relationship with this guy and your parents find out,
then that won't end well (unless they change their minds and they're fine with you being in a relationship).
I apologize if my rant didn't make any sense, but to keep it simple, if you like him and he likes you back, then by all means, be with him. I hope I helped you a bit!
That's all for now, and don't forget to send in your letters!
