Writer’s Block doesn’t exist.

Yes, it sounds like heresy.  It must be wrong.  Everyone talks about Writer’s Block.

Remember this?  It’s still Truth.

Artists can paint.  They may not be painting what they want to.  They may hate what’s on the canvas.  It’s boring and useless, they may think, drivel rather than art, gimmick rather than truth.  By they can apply color to the canvas.  That’s painting.

You may think you’re blocked, but you can compose a FB message or a tweet or an email.  You can write a blog, even if in your mind it’s boring and useless, drivel rather than art, gimmick rather than truth.

Artists can re-paint.  They can change perspective or techniques or even style.  They can paint for fun or for anger, to share laughs or to anticipate burning, a ritual bonfire of the drivel.  Every stroke of the brush moves them out of the stoppage they found themselves in.

The writers’ truth?  We also survive gimmickry.  We can re-write.  Those boring, useless, driveling words?  We can apply a new viewpoint or setting or changed outcome.  We can toss off a quick note or pen a diatribe, share it for laughs or get the fire out of our blood, a burning of what angers us and never needs to enter the sunshine.  Every keystroke on the laptop moves us out of the stoppage we find ourselves in.

Have you heard of that one?  Now go for another coffee.  Remember, send an email.  Burn a poem.  Delete an hour’s worth of writing.  Intend to do it.

Offend the muse.  Tell her who is in charge.  You are.  Writers don’t wait on inspiration.  We have jobs to do.

Look at that title again > Writer’s Block doesn’t exist.

I’m speaking heresy in the writing community.

Do you know someone who claims to suffer from Writer’s Block?  Have you yourself ever said, “I’m blocked.  I can’t write anything.”

I am hear to tell you that Writer’s Block is an IMPOSSIBILITY.
