Writer's block is a f**king myth!

I’ve been doing a lot more writing lately and I’ve come to the conclusion that suffering from writer’s block has nothing to do with writing.

You know why?
Everyone, and I do mean everyone, has an opinion on something, a story that they can tell, or just something that they want to get off their chest.

Now, I used to have this problem where I would just stare at a blank screen or a blank piece of paper and I called that writer’s block.  I addressed this some posts ago with what the real problem was:

I was afraid that what I was writing wouldn’t be perfect. That is a damn stupid thing to be afraid of. Rewrites and editing exist for a reason!

Also, whatever I write is mine. I may not be Ernest Hemingway, Stephen King, or Monte Cook but I write better than a hell of a lot of people out there. I may also not write as well as a lot of people out there. In the end, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that I write and in so doing get better!
