Seth’s Blog: Writer’s block and the drip

Seth’s Blog: Writer’s block and the drip.

Writer’s block was ‘invented’ in the 1940s. Before that, not only wasn’t there a word for it, it hardly existed. The reason: writing wasn’t a high stakes venture. Writing was a hobby, it was something you did in your spare time, without expecting a big advance or a spot on the bestseller list.

head-clickme2Alert readers will know that I read (and pass on) blogs from a couple of people on a regular basis and scan a great many others. The regulars are Seth Godin, Gerry McGovern and Andrew Sullivan. The first two because I think they are two of the savviest people writing about marketing and the Web and Sullivan because he’s just sui generis.

In this short post from Godin, he really sums up writing today: you don’t launch a popular blog, you build it in drips.

Kinda like Chinese water torture!
