The Crap I Write During Writer’s Block

Urghhhhhhhh. Arrrrfffffffgggggggggggggggeckkkkkkkkk! That’s the pained sensation of my body put into words. No, no, it’s not (just) constipation. I’m sitting at a communal table at Starbucks, trying to comb my inner space to see if there’s anything worth writing today.

How to Be a Miserable Artist/Creative Person
