Being cliché and writing about writer’s block
04.05.2021-Fragment of the Journal of Bela
Is it too cliché to write about writer’s block? I’m sure it is, so I won’t really write about that. You know, the way the world works right now we cannot afford to feel blocked. There is not enough time, not enough space in the schedule. Things just need to get done. And fast. No time to second-guess yourself, to stop and wonder if you are going down the right path. Just do it because you must. So that’s what I wanted to write about - about feeling blocked but producing whatever anyway because there is no time to let that magic light of inspiration come. Only I wanted to write about that, but I can’t: I’m blocked! (even though I made myself write five pages today, cause I had to, right) So I apologize for whatever trash is coming out of the tips of my fingers now. I just wanted to say that, as much as I always knew that getting stuck is simply frustrating, I had that romanticized idea in my mind that the magic moment of inspiration always comes to defeat the block. But in real life the deadline comes first.
