Day 256 – Writer’s block

D

I used to hear these two words a lot among some of my writer friends and also read about it many times in different articles. I never believed in it. I used to think that if you are a writer and you have a clear idea about what to write the rest is a piece of cake. I remember grinning at them, going home, writing a new short story in a few hours and thinking they were all full of crap. There is...

I’ve been through a lot this month, both personal and working wise but, even on the most terrible days I tried to put something out there; and believe me, that’s fucking hard to do. I...

Day 5 – Mental blockage

D

Is anybody out there? I need help. I have no idea whatsoever about what to write. While talking to a friend the other day, he told me: “Write about nothing!” and I said to myself this may be an idea worth exploring. Right, I have to write about my day, but you know what, my day was horrible today. Besides the lack of internet and the lack of will to leave the safety of my bed, I also discovered...
