Oh no! I’m stuck in the doldrums.
My dad said that the difference between an amateur and a professional
is that a professional will deliver even when he doesn’t feel like it.
Or he’s good at making himself feel like it. Someday I’m going to
figure out how to be a professional writer.
Here are the five things I’m going to try to break this writer’s block:
- Write for five minutes about anything. Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting the words flowing from my mind to the computer.
- Mindmap to see if the problem is that I don’t know what I’m talking about. If so, then this calls for some more research and playing around with Emacs.
- Tell myself that I only need to write about Emacs for five minutes. Just like in conversation, I tend to get carried away—but I have to start somewhere.
- Take care of my other tasks so that I’m not thinking about them.
- Deliberately not write until it drives me mad and I just _have_ to write.
See, that wasn’t so hard…
