The excuses against far outnumber the reasons for. Plus they’re SO much more fun!
Writer’s block must be the most visited block in the world. So many people visit every single day! But are we blocked or are we finding excuses not to write? To convince yourself that it’s a really good one and that, just for today, you shouldn’t write. We can convince ourselves of anything, can’t we? Whew!
You’ve been there. Maybe you are there. Do you have excuses that you tell other people (maybe like the green box below), but then others that are the real reasons you’re not writing (that’s probably the red box). Those hurt. Maybe you have a few middle-of-the-road yellow ones, too? So much to choose from! Woo hoo!
What’s your favorite writing excuse? Please let us know in the comments!
Here are just a few, but I need feedback as to what your excuses are. There are silly ones, hard ones and teeth grinding ones. I’m going to categorize a few here. Where you do fall?
