People say that a writer’s block is just a glamorized term; a lame excuse for procrastination – for being lazy. It’s a person’s excuse of not even putting an effort into churning his creative juices.
What do I say to that? I shake violently and act with a fit of rage,point a finger to whoever said that and say, ”that’s blasphemy!”
That statement actually made me think, for the twenty four years of my life I have discovered that I like getting pressured, that I like to put off activities that should be done today for tomorrow, and that like most students, I love to procrastinate. A really bad habit I admit, and it’s something that I would never be proud of sharing to my grandchildren in the future.
However, as I developed my love for writing; I made a commitment to never procrastinate about it. I developed a goal – to create a piece every single month, to avoid harboring rust and cobwebs on my brain, to just immerse in the wonderful world of serial commas, adjectives, and funny memes that I can add on my material.
But it’s not easy
When my imaginary friends fail me and I can’t come up with anything, I remind myself that I am a writer, a frustrated one, but I am a writer.
With the demands of ‘reality’ taking its toll on me, I will fight for the writer in me.
