As my Artist's Date for this week, I attended a writing panel tonight called, How To Write Comedy, or something similar and equally as dry. Anyway, I actually had a good time and here's the practical info I took from it:
1. Write consistently. Like, daily. Preferably first thing in the morning before your judgy mind starts working.
2. Write with a partner.
3. Being blocked is a cue to sac up and just write. Basically a block is synonymous with fear: of failing, of not writing the perfect thing that will never require a re-write. The best way to break it is to write anyway and plan for a zillion edits.
This one hit me since I haven't been able to finish this thing I've been working on for months but I really, really want to and it's depressing because the words won't come out. I'm going to try and be patient and just keep writing around it.
That is all.
