Day 221 – Writer’s block


If you know any writers, you will hear these words coming out of their mouths at least once. Wikipedia defines a  writer’s block as a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. I slightly disagree, but also very much agree with that. Confusing right?

The writer’s block I am experiencing right now has nothing to do with my ability to produce more work, but with my lack of time. I know, I am always complaining about time and constantly want to find a black market to buy some extra hours,but… I have a million new ideas, I am working on four things at once and, although I am excited about all the things I am doing, sometimes I fall asleep on the couch while reading and am very mad about it the next day. These are the moments when you hate sleep. But we always hate sleeping or eating whenever we feel like we have much more important things we should do, right?

So, as far as I can see, I am in the totally opposite position than the writer that experiences a writer’s block, but, on the other hand I am incapable of producing new work. Seriously, a black market for buying time!  Let’s look at the bright side of this lack of time situation: I do not have time for a writer’s block, therefor I think I am on the best path I could be.


About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
