I absolutely believe in being lazy, but I don’t believe in writer’s block
Before I started writing this blog post, I had a blank page. Well, a completely white WordPress editor screen to be precise. But as you can see, it’s not blank, totally white and devoid of words anymore.
How did I start? I read.
My day always begins with reading over breakfast. News, blogs, social media, emails and sometimes even a real newspaper.
Yes, an old-fashioned one made of paper that doesn’t need electricity to read.
This morning, between my coffee and tartine, I stumbled upon this quote on social media on my iPad, with my sticky marmalade tipped finger.
There’s no such thing as writer’s block. That was invented by people in California who couldn’t write. ~Terry Pratchett
Funny little quote, I thought. But then it set me to wondering about this whole writer’s block thing.
What is it? Do I suffer from it? When does it happen? Why does it happen? What do I do about it?
Then I had a passing thought. I don’t think I have ever written anything deep and meaningful about this dastardly subject before.
Time to rectify that and hit my new writing project.
