Check out this post from D.E. Haggerty’s blog on the topic of Writer’s block.
Writers discuss writer’s block as if it were some scary communicable disease. There are a gazillion articles with advice to writers with ‘cures’ for this disease. I think writer’s block – at least with regard to the ‘inability to produce new work’ – is a bunch of poppycock. (And yes, I may be exaggerating a bit, so I can use the word poppycock.)
Now, hold on. Before you decide to block me and call me nasty names on Twitter, let me explain. I treat writing like a day job because it is my day job. A really crappy paying day job, but a day job nonetheless. I get up every day (okay, most days) and write. Some days the writing flows from my fingertips, but most days it’s a slug. And then there are the days when writing even a paragraph feels like an impossible task. Still, I write on.
