Wow, I’ve got some nerve, haven’t I? I read Wil Wheaton’s blog yesterday, and he posted about procrastination and writer’s block. So what did I do? I had the nerve to comment on his post. Me, who hasn’t written here in… well, too long. Worse still, I gave him advice on how to get past a block. Sigh.
I told him that if he can’t think of anything to write, but feels the need to be writing, he should just start with “today I got up, had breakfast, etc.” and see where that takes him, and eventually he’d be reminded of a story he wanted to tell, and off he’d go. Sounds good, right? So why don’t I do it myself, then? Well, I shall. Actually, I already know what I want to write about, and I’m going to go do that now.
