Writer’s Block?

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?
