Writer’s Bootcamp, Day One


Breaking Up with Writer’s Block: It’s time for you and Writer’s Block to part ways.  Write a letter breaking up with Writer’s Block, starting out with, “Dear Wrier’s Block, it’s not you, it’s me…”

Dear Writer’s Block,

It’s not you, it’s me…

Well, this is awkward.

Truth is, I haven’t been faithful to you in a very long while.  From the 365 Blog, to writing and releasing my collection of modeling essays (and, by the way, Writer’s Block, have you ordered your copy yet?  Available where all ebooks are sold), to NaNoWriMo and subsequently finishing my third manuscript… this affair has been polyamorous at best for the last year or so.

I know, I know, we have quite the history.  When jobs were stressful and free time was in short supply, you were always there for me, reminding me that I could always watch a DVRed episode of Big Bang Theory or check out OhNoTheyDidnt instead.  But I’m not merely incapable of being monogamous; I’m Tiger Woods levels of unfaithful.

I mean, honestly: I’m shocked you haven’t received any texts from a jilted essay yet.

So, before you come after me with a nine iron, I think we should officially call it quits.  I know you’re hoping we’ll work something out, someday.  I know you’re hoping I’ll return to you, after I exhaust all my other options.  But, really, you deserve better.  I think.

Besides, your cousin Muse is wicked hot.

Much love,
