Why I (still) don’t believe in writer’s block
Yeah, it’s true. I long ago decided I could solve the problem or riddle of writer’s block by simply not believing in it. As I recall I’d worked it out this way: If I refused to pay attention to or worry about writer’s block it wouldn’t happen. By and large that’s worked out well for me. It’s also a fine example of how I can turn denial into a useful skill.
