I love Wikipedia. It has everything a curious mind needs in one place. Sometimes, I just visit the site even when I am not sure what I am curious about and then from the home page, it’s just click, click, click and off I go. Humans are definitely luckier than cats in this regard.
Anyways, Wikipedia’s awesomeness needs a blog entry in itself and I don’t want to digress. Here is what it says about Writer’s Block:
Writer's block can be closely related to depression and anxiety, two mood disorders that reflect environmentally caused or spontaneous changes in the brain's frontal lobe. This is in contrast to hypergraphia, more closely linked to mania, in which the changes occur primarily in the temporal lobe.
However, another interpretation of writer's block, sometimes confused with scant output, is given in the book Silences, by Tillie Olsen, who argues that historically many women and working-class writers have been unable to devote themselves to, or concentrate on, their writing because their social and economic circumstances prevent them from doing so.
The reason I have put this crap on my blog is that I think I am having one. Although, that would mean that I think I am a writer but I am willing to take that hit for a while. I just wanted to confirm one thing. I am unsure if one would be having a writer’s block if they were just feeling too lazy to update their blog? Or do anything productive for that matter? Like, anything at all?
