I don’t actually know what writer’s block is. The word ‘block’ implies to me that, once I come upon it, that I can just leap over it without a second thought. Easy. Those times where I cannot for the life of me think of what to write cannot be classified as writer’s block. It’s literally writer’s mountain range. Here’s what goes into my writer’s mountain range:
- Assignment is given.
- Stare at requirements for about an hour or two for good measure.
- Procrastinate. (See yesterday’s post.)
- Eat out of boredom.
- Stare at requirements again, and allow eyes to glaze over.
- Type the word ‘The’.
- Delete ‘The’.
- Type first sentence.
- Have eureka! moment and write the #&$^@ assignment.
Anyone have a mountain looming above a paper or another assignment?
