Writer’s Block


By Bruce Levine

I haven’t written anything yet today. Is something wrong? Do I have writer’s block? Heaven forbid! I’m not even sure what writer’s block is. Is it an excuse for not writing or is there an actual manifestation of impotence?

Whatever the reality I’m determined not to have it.

There! Now that I’ve said it and I’ve written it down it becomes its own oxymoron.

Why isn’t it self-evident to everyone then? Am I the only one who sees that I can’t have writer’s block if I’m writing this?

Oh, well … I’ll leave it to the shrinks to figure it out.

Bruce Levine is a 2019 Pushcart Prize Poetry Nominee. He writes “because he MUST.” His work is dedicated to the loving memory of his late wife, Lydia Franklin.

  1. This came at a great time!

    I’ve been exploring this in my own writing recently. It’s a hot topic to share.

    These times may lead you to having more availability to write than otherwise. It’s an opportunity you don’t want to let go by!

    Plenty of other opportunities as well. Including financial and self-growth. These were hot topics for me recently as well. Lots of writing subjects nowadays.

    Thank you for sharing! 🙂
