I think it was Ray Bradbury that said that one should write at least 250 words a day. By doing that, I guess one secures some form of discipline. Whatever, that means. Sometimes, one has a problem figuring out what to write about. I am admit that I have a problem. By that admittance, solutions come about. Some writers refer to this problem as writer’s block. I refer to it as mental fog. Quite a bit, it seems like I am in that mental fog.
To me, having writer’s block is like similar to trying to fall asleep. The more you try, the more difficult it becomes. Like right now, I attempting to write. I am frustrated so I am writing about how frustrating it is to figure out what to write about. Such a serious problem. The irony is when I am laying there trying to sleep is when the material that I can write about comes into clarity.
From this time forward, I will keep my journal near my bed so that I can write these kindred thoughts down as they descend.
