Because we can't all be John Green.
Writer's block. It happens to the best of us. When I'm struggling to work up some creative genius-ness, I like to remind myself that even the best of the best, that's right, even John Green gets writer's block. Or so I like to believe. (If you haven't read 'Paper Towns', 'Looking for Alaska', 'Turtles All The Way Down', 'The Fault In Our Stars', or 'An Abundance of Katherines', What are you doing with your life?)
This isn't even just to one Odyssey content creator to another, this is one writer to another. Sometimes it's just hard to get the juices flowing. Some weeks I have all the time in the world or an interview/collaboration set up, other weeks I crank out some word vomit thirty minutes before my deadline. It happens. But whether you're trying to meet a due date or just haven't allowed yourself to write in a while, it's important to push yourself and get those precious words articulated! I promise what you have to say is worth reading. Even if your mom won't, even if your boyfriend won't, send that story my way and I will read every letter.
