“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

Writers Block? Admit it?

The first step to help is admitting you have a problem….

Ok well that’s not true for writers block (the small kind anyway…the plot writers block? Ok yeah, admit that. But the little events…)

I find that when I have writers block, and I admit that to myself than it becomes more of a “OH MY GOSH I HAVE THE UN-CURABLE WRITERS BLOCK!!!!” Crazy frenzy of panic, rather than sorting through the problem and re-doing it I can only focus on how bad my writers block is. In fact, the vary words “writers block” set me off on this crazy mental game of hide and seek. I’m so afraid of it. I think its best for me to stay far far away from even admitting (or realizing) that I have writers block because that doesn’t bring me to help…it takes me farther away from it and into a deeper level of block. Anyone else feel the same?
