Writer’s Block Be-Gone!

Posted on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 in Uncategorized

A month of writer’s block & busyness be-gone!

While trying to shake free from my malaise I read what other writers did when enveloped in writer’s block. A google search led me to this quote by Maya Angelou:

“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat.’ And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I’m writing, I write. And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come.'” ~~ Maya Angelou ~~

Note – quoted by Richard Nordquist on

I love her humility and sense of humor expressed in this quote.

Time to get to work!
