Did you know? That writer’s block is an invention? (Well. Isn’t everything?)
You sit down.
Take a pen and paper (or a computer, an IPad, your phone or even a piece of chalk and a chalk board).
Then you write.
You’ve created something.
Written something which can be read by someone else.
Write. Then write some more. The more you write the better it will get.
Find your written voice.
And you know what? The less difference there is between your spoken and your written voice, the easier it will be to write. Because then you can just as easily just start to talk. And no one get’s talker’s block, do they?
Have you even heard of talker’s block before?
No. Me neither.
Question is. Should we invent speaker’s block? Or shall we simply see that if we write, as we speak, there is no such thing as writer’s block either?
Reflection #18 of 24 from the notes I took and the experience I had at the Seth Godin Q&A-session in London, November 2015. These reflections will constitute my Advent Calendar for 2015, and will be posted daily from December 1st to the 24th.
