Every single writer portrayed in the media of my youth seemed to be stricken with this mysterious condition called, “writer’s block.” This phenomena rendered said character unable to perform his craft, no matter where he went, or what remedies he tried, no matter how much his agent begged, cajoled, or threatened.
For whatever reason – perhaps because of what I had learned about other non-real-life-threats which were, for some reason, also recurring themes in the media of my generation, such as quicksand and the Bermuda Triangle – I was entirely skeptical that this was a real life thing, this, “writer’s block.”
I mean, really, I would think as I watched such a show, licking popcorn and salty butter from my fingers in pre-Covid bliss. The dude is paid millions to write books. Can’t he just churn something out for his agent, already?
How I would have ceased to scoff had I known that my own experience with this mysterious phenomenon loomed on the horizon of my future. And little did I know that my dear Co-Host, Christina Cattane, would also someday be plagued by this creative paralyzation we call, “Writer’s Block.”
