Are you a writer? Do you get writer’s block? Writer’s block is real. I’ve had it. Lots of writers have had it. And writer’s block is no joke. You stare at that computer screen, or in my case at that blank note book page, and not one single usable idea comes to you. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Zero. Not a damn thing.
Now I’m going to let you in on a secret that beats writer’s block every time. Are you ready?
Get away from that computer screen. Toss that note pad. Kick back with a few Iron City Beers and watch the Steelers or Pitt Panthers or give your naked significant other a full body massage while you both sip some chilled wine and listen to classical music on WQED FM. In other words, just forget about it. That computer screen will still be there tomorrow or next week when you get back to it. Just live your life. I’m a great believer in: you have to live it up in order to write it down.
That’s how you beat writer’s block…unless you have a dead line to meet. Then of course you’re screwed.
