Feeling “Blocked” Is A Luxury


I was telling a friend over drinks last Friday that, while I was doing my best to write, I felt “blocked.” She frowned at me in a way that told me I wasn’t going to like what she had to say next.

She asked, “What is your timeline to finish?”

I said, “August 1.”

“You realize that’s less than two weeks away,” she said.

I hadn’t realized that, but a quick mental calculation told me she was absolutely right. I nodded, taking a big swallow of my margarita.

“You need to get a move on,” she said.

She’s right, of course. And I realized something: “feeling blocked” is a luxury. It’s a luxury I can’t afford. That got me writing!
