As far as I am concerned, writer’s block is a Spirit Friend. It’s my intuition; my Guidance, my teacher. It forces me to listen to its needs – “change the material,” “go back to chapter two,” “write something else,” “go outside,” “exercise,” “take a break,” “eat something,” “get some sleep,” “RELAX!” It’s an internal clock. It’s when I’m most creative. I used to be depressed, fighting against it, always losing, but now I’m grateful. I need this Friend’s objectivity, because if I had my way, I’d sit in front of the computer and write all day – write, edit, and arrange my material. I’d forget about most everything else. This black keyboard is power. Whenever I write, I can do what I want, I can be what I want, look how I want, go where I want to go. I can change rules and regulations, I can change Vibrations, I can go on a psychedelic trip, speak alien gibberish, speak to the Muses… whatever. During a writer’s block, it’s important to focus on my spirituality as well. “You’re not supposed to be here, this is not what you’re supposed to be doing” is something I used to hear. I haven’t heard that statement in several years.
Whenever I get what’s famously called “Writer’s Block,” or simply need to write something besides poetry, marketing stuff, commercial fiction (don’t know, I think it’s a commercial fiction novel; who knows, I don’t have an agent yet), and all that jazz, I will come here. I will eventually add my dreams to this site as well.
