Are you a writer? Fiction? Poetry? Blogs? Music/Lyrics?

Do you suffer from ‘Writer’s Block?’

Yes. Definitely. I hate it.

Why? Why do you hate it? Is it because you feel you should be writing because you’re a writer?

Well of course.

But aren’t you also a person? With family maybe? A job? Ever get ill?

Well of course.

So what’s the problem? No one can write ALL the time.

I know that. But I’m a writer. It defines me.

Is an Astronaut not an Astronaut when he/she isn’t in space?

Of course not.

Is a fireman not a fireman when he/she isn’t rescuing someone?

Of course not.

So are you not still a writer when you’re not writing?

Hmmm. I see your point.

Good. 😀

  1. There’s truth to that for sure. It’s a good reminder. Sometimes I feel I should be writing but can’t seem to muster the desire. It causes anxiety to set in and that’s so counter productive to writing, like a vicious cycle. It’s only when I give myself permission to just be that the creativity comes back.

    1. Exactly my point. I think some of us forget sometimes that we’re more than just what we write. If honest this was probably inspired by a little bit of frustration at how fellow writers seem to be always complaining about not being able to write stuff. No one’s holding a gun to their heads. It’s perfectly understandable and I get those feelings myself but hell we all need to take a break sometimes for both our body and minds. Doesn’t mean you’re not a ‘writer’ any more. If you don’t do something else once in a while how would you grow as a person and therefore a writer? If I didn’t watch The Simpsons then I’d never get any ideas to write about anything (allegedly) 😉
