In a Kevin Smith inspired twist, I was forced to step up and come into work tonight to cover for one of my guys.
That’s what a leader does: He takes a shotgun to his plans and does the job when no one else is available. Still, I figured I could use the time to write once the check-in rush slows down.
And now it has.
And now I find myself as blocked as Trump after he hosts one of those parties where he serves nothing but McDonald’s to professional athletes. I have no self-confidence left as a writer, even though I’m desperate to finish my latest series.
Keep writing, Hook.
I’m trying, John.
I think I broke more than my hip on that warm September day.
It will heal whatever it is.Don’t give in.
Case of writer’s block huh? This too shall pass.
Let’s hope so!
You’ll be fine, just don’t force it as that makes matters worse!
Very true, old friend, thanks.
Take care Robert
What pensitivity101 said. Your writing lately has been excellent. I would advise you to avoid making that an impediment to any other writing you do. But what do I know?
Anyhow, good luck!
You know plenty, Doug, thanks again.
You’ve hit that wall before and managed break it down. I know you can do it again. On another note, I didn’t think you were back at work yet. The healing must be happening.
I came back in January when my Sick leave EI ran out.
I’ve been taking it as easy as possible, but it’s been challenging; I can’t tell how heavy a guest’s bags are simply by looking at them and I’m not supposed to lift more than 25 pounds on a repetitive basis.
So, I’m trying to direct more than actually execute, but again, it’s challenging.
Have you read Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott? Really helpful stuff if you’re feeling blocked. I especially like the chapters “Shitty First Drafts”, “Short Assignments”, and “Perfectionism”.
I’ll have to check it out, thanks.
I just don’t have any creative mojo right now.
