Writer’s block

Writer’s block

Is it even a thing? Neil Gaiman said “As writers we’re lucky if we’re not productive, we can blame it on ‘writer’s block’, an ailment that doesn’t seem to exist for other professions.  For instance, shoe salesmen do not get ‘shoe salesmen block’.  I stopped blaming writer’s block for my lack of productivity a while ago, just like I no longer say I have ‘bathroom cleaning’ block.  I know the reason I’m not doing it is  because I prefer to be doing something else.   If you’re waiting for your muse or some other sort of divine inspiration to force you start writing you’re likely to be disappointed.   Just get your bum in your chair and ‘show up’.  When you’re staring at that empty screen and just start writing, that’s when inspiration appears as if by magic!
