For the writer and the reader.
What is writer’s block?
It is a place where a
super human being who thinks he/she is worthy to be called a writer occasionally travels to. In this ugly place, stories in the head, and words in the mind, both real and imagined get crowded and temporarily ceases find expression much to the being’s frustration. in this block the person gets shut out from the happiness that productivity brings and wallows in nothingness and in extreme situations depression.
Writer’s block or laziness?
Laziness is laziness. according to university of wikipedia, “laziness is a disinclination to activity or exertion despite having the ability to do so.” i am going to repeat the “despite having the ability to do so” bit for emphasis sake. This disinclination to writing activity sometimes roots from fear of writing something less than what is expected of you or writing less than what you expect from you.
Some cases originate from low morale and seeming lack of encouragement or the fear of commitment which also comes from the fear of failure or rejection.
Whatever the case, others have called you a writer, you’ve even accepted and come to the point where you know you are a writer, don’t let _________________(fill in the name of your excuse) stop you from happiness that comes with punching the key pads or letting ink flow into paper. don’t stay inside a block when you can play outside with words and creativity.
Somehow if truly you are suffering from writer’s block, remember you got there through your mind and you must travel back to the place of creativity through your mind. The longer you take to make your travel plans, the more rusty your pen becomes, your ink starts to dry and….can you truly imagine not being able to write anymore? if the thought doesn’t scare you, kindly take off your writer’s jacket and take a \____________
In my opinion, the remedy to writer’s block is to write. write about anything. rubbish or sensible, just write. which ever way you are most comfortable, pen on paper or using a computer, which ever way,
Write your way back to freedom..
You may need to rest well too and get away from all the things that suck your creative juice. that period is a good time to read too.
So i have been watching so
me who think they have a way with words hide under the shadow of writers block for a while when in actual sense they are only under the umbrella of laziness. please repent (takes note and).
Remember, Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength). God has not given you the spirit of fear (false evidence appearing real) but of power, love and self discipline! (2 Thimothy 1:7)
