How To Cure Writer’s Block In A Few, Easy Steps: Use At Your Own Risk

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.

  1. kawawa naman. magcliff dving kanalang mas lilinaw pa pananaw mo sa buhay! hehe. joke. i hope you are cured now already. šŸ™‚

  2. 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.

  3. 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. šŸ˜†

      • It’s children’s game XD Seriously, I am amazed by my lack of shame when I tell people that I *still* play Neopets. šŸ˜†

        • 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.
