How I Cured My Writer’s Block


I have not been keeping up on my Joss Whedon news. I’m something like two weeks behind! This happens to me regularly. I want to blog a lot more than I do, but I lack energy to sort it all out – there are so many topics I want to seize upon. I have started at least eight different posts before realizing that something else was more pressing, and posting about the something else instead. That is, when I post at all. All of this leads to psychological pressure that I put on myself, which contributes to my writer’s block.

The idea of trying to catch up is ridiculous – it would be way too much work! So I have come to a conclusion and that is this: from this time forward, this blog will be hopelessly, hilariously out-of-date if it wants to be. Or not, if it doesn’t. I’m going to fall back into my time vortex and let myself lose track of ordinary time. So I’m going to post things weeks, sometimes months, after they hit the news. Or sometimes on the very day the news is out! It’s the only way. But I’ll be on time when it really matters, you’ll see.

Coming soon: blog posts about Serenity: Leaves on the Wind, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Sexisim in Joss Whedon’s work, Isms vs. Ignorance, and Lady Sif from Thor. (I luuuurve Lady Sif.)

I was going to close with an embedded video called “8 Mind-Blowing Connections Between the Works of Joss Whedon” but I then I watched it, and I find the people in it (especially the woman) extremely annoying, and I don’t want them on my blog. But the premise is cool. Check it out if you dare.
