The 6 Types of Writer's Block4:36 PM
Trust me, I speak from personal experience here.
Writer's block. It sucks. (To be fair, I don't exactly believe in writer's block as a thing. But that's what we call it, so that's what I'll call it. Savvy?) If you've ever written anything at all ever, you know the feel. It's crept up on you at some point. Breathed on your neck. Pointed at what you're writing and laughed about it.
|says the writer's block.|
In honor of my current very-sucky writer's block, let's take a look at that.
1. The writer's block. This is what you think of when you think about writer's block. You're staring at the blank page. The blank page will not respond. You want to rip your fingernails off one by one so you can experience something less painful than this thing you're experiencing. That, or you just want to complain about it on Twitter until someone comforts you and kicks your butt into gear about it. This writer's block is easily defeatable, because it usually comes from laziness.
sorry, but it's true.
|the bane of my existence, right here.|
2. The procrastination block. Also known as: an excuse.
To be fair, you might not realize that's what it is. You may not be able to consciously admit it. I've done this so many times I don't care to admit it. We're all lazy writers sometimes. This is the biggest struggle. Ugh.
|Preach it, RDJ.|
|me with everything always.|
|The gif was necessary.|
|That awkward moment when you need to write, but nothing comes out. Nothing makes sense. Ew. Bye.|
This is the ultimate block. The "everything sucks and I don't know why" block. This is what I have right now. As far as I know, there's no cure. You just kinda have to...wait it out. And it's no fun at all.
What can you learn from this? Writing is the worst.
SOMEONE SEND HELP. What do you do when you're hopelessly blocked and nothing is working? Let's wail together.
