I guess what I’m about to say is more positively called Writer’s Unlock…rather than Writer’s Block. Not sure why I feel the need to bastardize my creative process…I guess old habits die hard.
Anyway, sometimes I have a great thought, write it down, end up unwinding the thought a thousand times and extracting its essence…only to end up with something I question, yet feel passionate about. Then I sober up and determine whether or not all that mental energy (and sometimes torment) was worth it. Success Rate: ~33%
