“I can’t write.”
It’s the resignation declaration of the self-defeated. It’s also a fat slice of baloney.
You won’t write? You don’t want to write? I’m willing to buy these statements. But “can’t?” Sorry friend, you can.
You’ve been writing your whole life. You write now. You write emails, greeting cards, shopping lists, meeting notes, etc. In your school years, you wrote every day. When you graduated you wrote a resume.
But now, a blank screen transforms you into an anxious, insecure mess.
