When he twists the knob on the timer to the 15-minute mark, his mind clears. His fingers start to move. Words appear on the screen.
The 15-Minute Writer knows this simple truth about writer’s block: It exists, until it doesn’t.
When the timer is not ticking, and he is not writing, he may even think of himself as “blocked.”
Then he sets the timer, is seduced by the ticking, and beings to write.
He is no longer blocked.
Because The 15-Minute Writer has been practicing this simple discipline, he is calm even when he is not writing.
Even when he wonders what he is going to write when he sets the timer.
Because when he sets the timer, worry dissolves. His mind snaps into a different space. He writes.
He writes for every minute of the fifteen he has set for himself.
When the buzzer sounds, he stops.
He is no longer writing. But he doesn’t consider himself “blocked.”
After all, the words are there, on the screen or the printed page.
And because he enjoys the effect the sound of the ticking timer has on him, he may reset the timer.
He has gotten to the point where he doesn’t believe in writer’s block. He knows that it used to exist and that now it doesn’t.
As simple as turning the knob on a kitchen timer.
