Writer’s Block

I have this weird compulsion.  I really ENJOY writing.

If anybody else likes it, that’s cool.  That’s like icing on the cake.  I’m happy if a byproduct of my personal compulsion brings joy or entertainment to others.  My biggest concern is actually the opposite — that my blather might be toxic or unhealthy.  Words can be powerful after all, and they sometimes have a weird and unpredictable affect.  (One asshole even claimed the pen is mightier than the sword — SURE! — so how come it’s always the ones mouthing off with words who end up getting their asses beat??)

I sometimes hear writers talking about having “writer’s block.”  I have no idea what they’re talking about.  My biggest problem is getting myself to shut up every now and then.
