I’ve had this problem through my writing life. Sometimes, I sit down to write, I do anything but the task at hand. Does this sound familiar?
It’s horrible. When this happens to me, I usually sit there and become increasingly aware of my failure to write. My mind soon becomes a blank white screen and no sentences can be formed. I can only think of all the writers out there who are actually productive and successful. Then, I become agitated and give up.
Why am I telling you about this? I experienced it today and had to tell somebody. Usually, I remain quiet. I can’t give up anymore.
