Writing Around Writing

Ah yes, the last refuge of the blocked writer. When you are having trouble writing you can always write about that trouble, complain about how you can't think of what to write, or that you have not been writing enough lately, or that if you have your writing is no good. There are more than a few entries in my journal that consist only of remarking on how I haven't written much in my journal lately.

Writer's block is a muse who is always willing to talk to you—as long as it's about writer's block.
