I always tell my students I don’t believe in “writer’s block”. And I don’t. I’ll never budge from that conviction. But, I do believe in writer’s walls. They have to be surmounted. And some take longer than others, expectedly. But don’t ever stop at some perceived block. If you have to, walk away, take a break, come back to it, but hold yourself to finishing the piece.
And I’ll be honest, I at times feel more a student than the students probably do. I’m learning, too. Very much.
Packing my bag for class, I am a student, thankful for the end of the semester.
But there’s a semester after this one.
And I’ll still be writing.
Over that wall.
