Breaking Up is Always Hard

Today’s been a tough week. I thought I be able to write more, but something unexpected happened. Before I get into the gory details, let me set the mood with some context.

Whenever possible, I like working with another writer because we can bounce ideas off each other and come up with more creative solutions. I had a great relationship with one writing partner. Our skills complimented each other well, leading to some fantastic scripts that we even sold! This was us:

As the title suggests, the dam got demolished. We decided to stop working together on Tuesday. We came to this decision for a couple of reasons. Most notably, our work just didn’t feel fresh anymore. At the start of our relationship, we would have new and creative ideas almost everyday. It was a real adventure writing together.

Then over time those ideas became less frequent. Our work became safe, predictable and I can’t believe I’m saying this, boring.

So I had to make a change. Like a Band-Aid, I just had to rip it off and end our working relationship. However, people don’t tell you that it’s going to be so hard, which I guess is also like ripping off a Band-Aid.

From Tuesday onward I haven’t been able to write anything. Writer’s block is beating me down like this:

So this is my current predicament. It’s holding me back at the moment, but hopefully I can come out ahead. Or I could find another writing partner, anyone interested?

Until next time,

Mr. Struggle
