Objectivism Block

People sometimes talk about writer’s block as if it was a toothache but it isn’t a physical thing, it’s just a made up handle for not reaching the creative place one wishes. It’s more damage to repeatedly tell yourself you are not there than to simply keep trying and don’t judge so much until you get there.

If you are at a loss for writing, first, if I can be so mean – don’t believe it exists. Telling yourself over and over you have this condition….you will at the very least confirm to yourself you are someone who can’t write.

Of course there are actual people who do not have the capacity to be creative i.e. Rona Ambrose, Tony Clement, Stephen Harper but that is just a side effect common to these strange folk who find Atlas Shrugged erotic.
