The other day, my sister showed me a post on 9gag about something Forrest Gump said and I took the liberty of editing it. This is my take: “Writing is like farting. If you have to force it, it’s probably crap.”
Yes, I seriously think I have writer’s block and when the settlement of your internet fees depend on writing, this may not be the best realization of all. There is nothing worse than staring at a blank page with a blinking cursor – every blink feels like a stab on the chest fueling the need for anxiolytics, or antidepressants if things get bad enough.
I told WB about this and the conversation went this way:
PM: I’m fucked. I read them as you said and nothing.
WB: No clue at all?
PM: They are all just numbers. This is not my strength.
WB: Numbers are good. We do it step by step.
PM: I feel like I have writer’s block. If that is the case, I’m doomed.
WB: Go wash your face and shout out your window.
PM: I will. Maybe jump off the window too.
WB: Just don’t hurt your hand and head, will be good.
PM: Alright, will try to sort myself out of this spiritual constipation.
But I still think I’m fucked.

I have a writer’s block hehehe. Or should I say I seriously need to find time to blog more frequent.
yes, find more time to blog! i miss your regular posts 🙂
kawawa naman. magcliff dving kanalang mas lilinaw pa pananaw mo sa buhay! hehe. joke. i hope you are cured now already. 🙂
i want to try cliff diving. have you? oh well, i get by.
oo, tapos na and i want more, the higher the better. hehe. you should try it.
i will find the opportunity. but i think you need to know how to swim to do this? if that is the case i’m doomed.
din naman cguro kelangan eh.. just put a life jacket or any floaters in the waters below and you’re good to go. hehe; 🙂
great idea! where did you cliff dive?
once in Boracay, makeshift lang yun dahil super hightide that time, mababaw kasi tubig dun. and once here in St. Bernard Southern Leyte, mas dangerous to dahil river ang tatalunan, madulas ang cliff, at mabato. a site for badassery. hehehe.
You should checkout Malapascua Island’s 50ft drop, sidetrip ng island hopping. :))
island hopping? ack, i can’t!
may ganito sana akong post
inunahan mo pa ako
unlike WB, i won’t suggest you jump off your window to manage writer’s block;
i had 2 attempts already and trust me, it’s a sign of being coward (serious???!)
what i have in mind is simple.
my prescription is a pint of chocolate or vanilla ice cream whenever symptoms kick in.
i like your suggestion, doc – fantastic stuff! 😀
Mental constipation? Read just about anything, including “expired” and outdated articles. It causes diarrhea. 🙂
yes, okay, hopefully it works. you sure that’s better than jumping off the window?
i do like the idea of jumping off the window to cure writer’s block. first floor window that is…..
i’m in no mood to write lately too.
it’s truly interesting, isn’t it, when this happens? it’s like sudden constipation! 😆
hahaa .. natawa ako dito ah 🙂
it’s really tough i tell you.
Cheers, PM! I, onthe other hand, feel like I have a lot of things to write about. Only thing is when I get in front of my laptop all I can think about is playing Neopets. 😆
OMG there goes neopets again. seriously, i need to find out what this game is about.
It’s children’s game XD Seriously, I am amazed by my lack of shame when I tell people that I *still* play Neopets. 😆
there is no shame in that. for my part, i still use coloring books. btw, i want to tell you that the last book i read has one character that reminds me of you. naturally i don’t know you personally but i think you are the kind of person who is as fun as clyde potts. i wish you could read kill two birds and get stoned. it is not blow your mind great but it is definitely fun.
I’ll go look for an ebook! Sana matapos ko sya, you know how busy I am with Neopets. Gaaahd, naloloka ako sa sarili ko. Hahahaha.
pag mahapdi na yung mata mo sa neopets magbasa ka naman 😆
Lemme guess, this WB is the online employer?
he’s the guy who encourages jumping off windows to cure writer’s block 😆
