Writer’s block. It happens. It hits you and sometime you feel like there’s nothing you can do about it.
Some things to consider:
- Who is really blocked here? We consider it to be some fault of our own. We’d rather spend our time doing something else. But what about those times that we really, really want to write?
- All creativity is communion with the Source, otherwise known as Creativity. Everything comes from these sources, including spirits and thoughts.
- Maybe it isn’t you that’s blocked. Maybe there’s a block on the other side?
What if Creativity, or at least the way it interacts with you, isn’t content to stay on the same path as you? Perhaps there are people who have been given a familiar who is perfectly aligned with their work ethic. They can conceive of an idea and see it all the way through because it is as though they have a partner in all of this.
What if your creative partner is no longer interested in the thing you were working on yesterday?
Perhaps the best thing to do for people like us, who are either ourselves ADD or have spirit partners who are, is to take a step back and throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing.
I got the same advice from two different friends. One said to have a spontaneous anal sex scene. The other was a bit more subtle: “surprise yourself.”
That’s what I did, and it worked. No matter which end is blocked, surprise will fix it.
