Five random ideas on Writing block

Let’s begin saying that I am guilty of all charges on these ideas, the reason I know I am, is because I have been able to learn some of them, but I can assure you that there is a long list of other things I do, that I am not even remotely aware.

  • One of the big issues with writing is the excuses we say to ourselves, writing is hard, tough and difficult, therefore we create great things to procrastinated like writers block, and we make no time to write, regardless of how important write is for us, it is always the last thing in our list, think about it, people are parents, workers, husbands, wives, friends, parents, sons and daughters, then after everything else, we are writers.
  • We writers don’t procrastinate, we have writers block. Writers love to be special, because we tend to be sensible people, we are full of insecurities, therefore we need to feel special, constantly. Because of that we writers don’t procrastinate, there is nothing special about procrastination, writers block instead is cool, and assure us, that we are something unique, writers.
  • The problem with procrastination or writers block is that can last a really long time, most of the time caused for the fear of write poor stuff, we as writers forget that we need to write a lot of bad and poor stuff (let’s be honest, Crap) in order to write and create good stuff, so because we are afraid of write the poor stuff we hide behind the writer’s block curtain. Please don’t allow me to fool you, I have hide behind that same curtain before, until I learn that if I allow myself to write poor stuff I get more confident to write the better stuff.
  • Writers Block is the best excuse writers had invent to said they are afraid, if I have Writer’s Block in some way, we belong to a special club, but also I don’t need to say I am in any way afraid, I don’t need to acknowledge the fear, I don’t need to admit that I am afraid, because what I have is Writer’s Block!
  • Professional writers don’t suffer from writer’s block, basically because they had understood that in order to write good stuff they need to write the stuff that it is not even worth the trash, in order to write the good one, and they know that writer’s block is nothing more than fear with a fancy name.

There is another secret, your bad stuff, no one need to read it, you can even delete it if you want, I keep a running file, called STUFF TO HIDE, for those days in witch I am afraid to write, when I can claim I have Writer’s Block. I know I need to write poor stuff, but only when I don’t want to sit and write. When I sit to write I only wish to write great incredible stuff. It is because of that, that I simply put it there, in that file, and write, write like a mad man (but you can do it as a women if fit better). Other days, I think I will write great stuff, and should get published for the whole world, in case you are not aware, there is a lot of the bad stuff that should be shared, and a lot of the great that should be burn and no one should write, but it is at the end of the day, the fear, the fear of not being good, of not been special, or not being a a writer, of not write good enough, in conclusion, a fear of what others think, a fear of not being good enough.
