Why You WANT To Get Writer’s Block!

For most writers, having writer’s block is one of those things that keep you awake at night. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novelist, a journalist, a playwright or a short story writer…having writer’s block can turn the most macho writer into a quivering mass of self-doubt.
But if you write a short screenplay to enter into the Snake Alley Festival of Film’s screenwriter competition…you really want “Writer’s Block!” Because “Writers Block” is the name of the award given for the best short screenplay.
If you saw the awards given to film makers last year, you’ll have an idea of the caliber of this unique award. It’s a first for this year, and the winner will have bragging rights about being the very first writer to ever win this award.
Early submission deadline for all entries (including this one) is February 1st. Go to the website http://www.snakealleyfestivaloffilm.com and click on the box marked (I’m not joking here) “withoutabox” for all the details.
Then just imagine that you’re amongst your peers and one of them mentions that he has writer’s block. You can respond, “So do I! I keep it on a shelf in my office!” Then smile enigmatically and casually walk away.
