I’ve never really thought of writer’s block as a writer’s enemy. Sometimes (for me) it means you’re not ready to write that part of the story–I’ve revisited things years later. So, writer’s block ends up being a placeholder for a building block.
Sometimes, I force my way through and then have to send things back to the chopping block, which is much worse. Of course, you have make sure that what you have is writer’s block. I think sitting is just part of the process of getting things out. Like . . . toilet activities–sorry. For me, anyway, 90% of the work is forcing myself to put my ass in the chair. Show up, day after day.
Great job everyone! I’ve been making goals with you but not announcing them to spare myself embarrassment. And this month would be especially embarrassing. I got kind of sidetracked with the book giving thing. I think one thing writers do is invent things to do to get out of writing. Go team!
