Fictional Concept: Writer's Block

I don’t believe in writer’s block. The thought of there being nothing to write or knowing there is but being unable to find it is irrational to me. As a writer there isn’t anything not worth writing about.

Writing is about learning how to tell a story, even if it seems like the wrong one to tell. The craft comes into play the most when the story isn’t inherently a good one. The writer then brings out the good of the story.

If they don’t find the story they dig inside themselves and write of the search for it. They’re faced with the obligation to learn how to share the experience.

Writer’s block can’t be real if you can write about writer’s block. It simply can’t.

It’s no more than a fictional concept.

Being a writer only happens through the act of writing.
