The idea with Writer's Block is to write through it. Start with a blank page, something like that. Pull out an old notebook, find something that resonates. I've got a few of those, and they used to excite me. Now they just depress me because nothing in them is new.
Maybe I am looking for "the new new thing". It's not Web 2.0 for me. I mean, I like Web 2.0 and all, although it's all heading mainstreamwards, but to me it's all about collaboration, about organisation and democratisation. They're all good things, but none of them are creative in and of themselves.
My desire, my true heart's desire, is for an easy life. But on a second level, I want to write. Or I want to have written. But at the moment there's nothing new out there. It didn't used to be this way.
Everything used to set me off on a new train of thought. One thought would trigger another and the two would transform in my head in to something else. I'd sit on a train with abook in one hand and my trusty Psion 3 beside me - and by the end of the trip I would have a half a dozen new ideas written down. Some would only be a couple of words, but they'd trigger something later. But recently, nothing.
I have theories why.
