“ Writer’s block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work. ”


Take it from Jerry Seinfeld. Other famous creators have articulated the same sentiment:

E.B. White: “A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.”

Chuck Close: “Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work.”

Tchaikovsky: “A self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood.”

Isabel Allende: “Show up, show up, show up, and after a while the muse shows up, too.”

Samuel Johnson: “Composition is for the most part an effort of slow diligence and steady perseverance, to which the mind is dragged by necessity or resolution.”

Still, should you find yourself creatively blocked, here’s some help.
