Writer’s Block

12 Feb


I’d compare writer’s block to being severely constipated. It’s like you really want to go…but you just can’t.

Until you realize it’s time to sh#t or get off the pot.

What’s the figurative laxative?



Tried it.


Tried it.

Exercise obsessively to get your mind going?

Tried it.

Sit around and stare at the lap top screen hoping it comes to you?

Tried it.

Play with your dog?

Tried it.

Fold the laundry?

Tried it.

Eat some peanuts?

Tried it.

Look at the clock and realize most of the day is gone and you’re almost SOL?

Trying it..


Here’s to just plain old sh#tting out words and hoping they come out alright. Cheers!

    I have to say, when the block sets in the ‘s**tting word’ theory is extremely effective. In the splurge some type of inspiration will always come … eventually 🙂

      Ha ha ha..Yes…’eventually’ is the key word. I have to say though, forcing words out is the only way to overcome writer’s block for me. Because what starts off as a little block becomes a mountain over the course of time. I got 10 pages done that night once I got to it.
