Playing games online, to some, is a pastime. For me, it is something more, as you will see in this post.
I know I keep repeating myself, but I write for a living. I do freelance writing, and I also work as a senior writer for a businessman in Canada who is involved in cryptocurrencies and education. Polar opposites, right? Anyway, I had to repeat it since it has something to do with this post, mainly what I do to get over writer’s block.
According to the Royal Literary Fund, writer’s block can be a temporary or lasting conundrum. It is a condition where a writer fails to “put words on paper.” Moreover, no writer can claim to be immune to writer’s block. Every writer can go through it. However, whereas some writers experience it for a few minutes or hours, some writers suffer from it for a day or two.
It is a simple enough problem if there ever was one. It only becomes a huge one when targets and deadlines are affected. There is also that nagging feeling where a writer sees herself as a failure, incapable of completing something worthwhile. It is when writer’s block hits the hardest – that feeling of helplessness and unworthiness. And honestly, that is what I sometimes feel when I cannot string the right words together to form a coherent thought.
