I am most successful as a writer when what I am writing about is the most important thing on my mind. The ability to Plunge a syringe into your brain and withdraw the foremost passions and thoughts only to inject them onto the page is the literary equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel.
But what do you do when what is foremost on your mind is sacrosanct.
What do you do when your primary thoughts are everything that cannot be spread to anyone, neither the elites nor the huddled masses?
What do you do when the thoughts you most think are toxic to the air?
What do you do when even the benign thoughts in your realm are susceptible to infection by the virus that is your most primary thoughts?
What happens when the thoughts foremost in your mind cloud your ability to Conjugate your verbs forge agreement with your subjects?
What do I do?
I write about writing about it. It was the first lesson I learned in dealing with writer’s block. Write about how you can’t write what is most pressing until something you can write about becomes more important.
