“Here’s the deal. Everywhere I go people ask me the same question, “What are you doing here?” I should probably stop showing up at random homes unannounced.
Here’s another deal. People often ask me, “How do you write so prolifically?” Well, after I introduce myself and explain why I’m at their house, I tell them that it’s easy to write when you know that you have literally twos of adoring fans. As my dear Uncle Bobo used to tell me when I was just a tot, “Makya, if you can make just two people laugh, you’re successful.” Of course, years later we realized that my uncle had no idea what the word “successful” meant…he was also commonly confused by “corduroy,” “enamel,” and “marshmallow.” Sweet guy though.
But I guess my point is – writer’s block doesn’t exist.
Writer’s block is something that authors made up to allow themselves to avoid writing. If one wants to write, one can write. There’s no inspiration levee in our brains that can stop us. Writing is easy. (Writing well, that’s another issue)…..”
