“I've often said that there's no such thing as writer's block; the problem is idea block.”
~ Jeffery Deaver
You will not get a long winded thought provoking banter form this week I am keeping it simple. We all suffer from this at one point or another. We struggle trying to force our pens, willing our imaginations through the thick grey mass of our brains. Many poets and writers have poems about writer’s block; it’s a horrid but curable condition. Many say the best way to cure it is to write about it. This is what we will do today. Maybe you don’t have writer’s block at this moment. This then should lead to you being able to write a better poem about it.
“You can live with me in this house I've built out of writer’s blocks”
~ Pete Wentz
"writing about a writer's block is better than not writing at all”
~ Charles Bukowski
“Very often we write down a sentence too early, then another too late; what we have to do is write it down at the proper time, otherwise it's lost.”
~ Thomas Bernhard
