Say Anything

Writer's block, I believe, is about withholding who you are...not being able to fully express yourself because your internal filter is on.

What if we were able to remove that filter and just say whatever flows? What if we just let loose everything without fear of being criticized?

When it comes down to it, does it really matter what others think? In that moment of writing, isn't it more important to say what we feel, feel what we say?

When we are authentically creating, our readers know we are genuine. They can feel it. If you try to pull the wool over their eyes with drivel, they will know it. Readers can sense it.

Think back to a book you read where you weren't feeling it. Yeah, you know it.

Get into that feeling place of what you are writing. Write. Write. Write. Who cares what you've written...just write. Let the words flow. Go ahead...say it. Say something.

Say Anything.

" A career? I've thought about this quite a bit sir and I would have to say, considering what's waiting out there for me, I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or repair anything sold, bought or processed as a career. I don't want to do that. My father's in the army. He wants me to join, but I can't work for that corporation, so what I've been doing lately is kick-boxing, which is a new sport. As far as career longevity, I don't really know. I can't figure it all out tonight, sir, so, I'm just gonna hang with your daughter." - Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything
