Discovering the Relevance of Words
Usually, I’d start a piece like this by bringing up a personal story or a pop culture reference that would guide us toward the theme of today’s question. I’d ramble for a couple of paragraphs about the nature of language and try to toss in a couple of jokes. Laughs would be had, insights would be shared, good times would roll.
But I’m not gonna do that today. I’m not gonna do that beause I’m suffering from a little something I like to call, say it with me, Writer’s Block. That’s right. And it sucks.
We’re all writers here. We can speak frankly. Have you ever had that “not-so-creative” feeling?
See? That right there. That last sentence was an attempt at a douche joke. Seriously. It was a call-back to a mid-ninties series of douche commercials that everyone used to mock but no one younger than 27 remembers anymore.
It was terrible.
How do you deal with writer’s block?
I clearly need help here.
