So often, people are quick to say that they cannot write because they are under the weight of writer's block, an unknown and masked phenomenon that inhibits our ability to write. We so easily forget that writing, although is a standard requirement and educational scale nowadays, is seen at it's best when it's done out of personal pleasure, not assignment. So many of us forget the passion and the power of our words throughout personal writings because we are doted with it as a "task", we are being assigned what to write and when to turn it in, which is somewhat equal to telling someone okay, here is your topic, I want you to feel and write about this by this certain deadline, or you will receive a failing grade. Writing is equally partnered with feeling. To write is to feel, so I believe that, if you are sitting down and trying to force yourself to write, it will not happen. Just like trying to force yourself to feel. Write when you feel inspired. Write when you feel cleansed and light. You cannot make yourself feel or desire. Let it come to you.
