Author and blogger Victoria Schwab provided an insightful outlook on writer’s block. I found this entry on procrastination v. percolation via author Tessa Gratton’s twitter and thought it was definitely worth sharing with whoever might read this. The message rings true, even though I’m not quite as published as Schwab and her commenters. Sometimes you can get creatively spent and you have to reboot–percolate. Or, emotions (fear and anxiety, for example) can cause us to anticipate failure, which we, of course, would like to put off for as long as possible–procrastinate. The thing is this: We are guaranteed failure if we never start or don’t finish. Guaranteed FAIL. But, there is still a chance what we do could be successful if we realize we are procrastinating and push through it. Beyond writing practices, Schwab has given her blog followers a life lesson. See if it pertains to you by giving her entry a look here.
I hope you guys have a great weekend, and if you are in the Hattiesburg area, HubFest is Saturday!!! Yay!
