"Writer’s block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work."
Take it from Jerry Seinfeld. Other famous creators have articulated the same sentiment:
E.B. White: “A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.”
Chuck Close: “Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work.”
Tchaikovsky: “A self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood.”
Isabel Allende: “Show up, show up, show up, and after a while the muse shows up, too.”
Samuel Johnson: “Composition is for the most part an effort of slow diligence and steady perseverance, to which the mind is dragged by necessity or resolution.”
Still, should you find yourself creatively blocked, here’s some help.

Portrait water colour of Kalhuhuthu, 23 December, 2013. Kalhuhuthu is from Male’, Maldives. He is a vendor at the local market, selling shoes and allen keys.
pro-democracy twitter users from maldives reacts to losing the election and return of former dictator gayoom (kaaminee family) that ruled the country for 30 long years to power using #kaamineerajje hashtag and by posting depressing tweets of hopelessness which are somewhat hilarious at times. not all such tweets were tagged so might not show up there.
the first few days were mostly silent and with few depressing tweets for many of us. we are now moving on to upcoming local council and parliamentary elections…and commenting on new cabinet appointments.
here are some tweets with images (usually of food and a tiny toy of some sort — which began with the first two tweets here):
some verses from late naifaru ali hussein’s poem “muskulhi kamaai maru”.
…reminds me of maumoon abdul gayoom.
