What is writer’s block? Why does it have to exist when I know I have so many things to say but just can’t find the words to get them out of my head?
As an afflicted of writer's block, I’ve come to realize that it simply is seductive addictive perfectionism induced by perceived societal expectations and a fake cluttered self-image that cloaks our inner child and true core self.
Have you ever seen a child with writer’s block? Of course not. They just write whatever comes to mind. They are innocent. Their self-image is genuine and hasn’t been smothered yet by masks over masks of fake faces of deluded ideals. They just are.
So, do you want to get rid of writer’s block? Just be. What block you are crippling thoughts of what others might think and what your expensive-writing-course author prowess should be. But nobody can write your material better than you can. Regress your mind to a more innocent way of thinking where you are just you without being seized by a legion of perceived standards and crippling what-ifs.
As Confucius (I think) said, less is more. Writer’s block is trying to go for more and delivering less.
