I hope I never suffer through writer’s block, please please please

October 27, 2008 by  

I’ve been fortunate enough to never suffer through writer’s block. I can probably attribute this to the fact that I generally only write when I feel inspired. It’s not that I sit down for long sessions while I’m inspired, but I instead write down little notes when an idea comes to my head, and when I do have time to write, I go back to my notes and get down to work.

I now have a huge backlog of great ideas that I have to organize before I can go ahead write new comedy sets. In total, the job of organizing should take me about 40 hours. For some reason, I can’t get passed this block. It’s not so much writer’s block as it is writer’s procrastination.

I took this past Friday and Monday off partially to work my way through the backlog, but I can unfortunately report that I haven’t actually done any work organizing. I know to be great at comedy, I have to put in the time doing the heavy lifting behind the scenes. It’s just that when I look at the mountain of organizing, I get a bit weary.

Oh well, I won’t beat myself up, as the days off are gone now. I’ll simply have to split up my workload and do a little each night before going to bed.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to
    set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure
    where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thanks
