I don't think there is a single thing more irritating than writer's block.

For me, personally writer's block comes a little differently than it does for other people, it seems. I don't really get a halt in the flow of ideas. Rather, my perfectionist tendencies act up and instead it can take me half an hour to write a single paragraph. I end up having issues describing things exactly how I want them to be described and it is emotionally and psychologically exhausting.

This is totally and completely frustrating for a variety of reasons, if only because it means that writing comes slower while my mind is still going so, so quickly.

I wish I could describe it more explicitly. I have been working on the same description of a meat stall - A MEAT STALL - for fifteen minutes, and I'm still trying to get it pegged perfectly. Sheesh. I think this is why I end up finding it so difficult lately to sit down and write for an extended period of time. I find myself so, so frustrated by my inability to describe things perfectly.

I think I need to learn to be more relaxed in my writing. I need to learn to just write. To not overthink things. Otherwise I will never get anything done.
