Tackling the writer’s block, and almost winning

Comedy is one job, which if you do badly…nobody will laugh at you.

– Some comedian for sure

As I had mentioned in my post two days back, I have been suffering from Writer`s Block. So much so, I sent my boss in office this mail.

Dear Sir,

As I am suffering from Writer`s Block, please grant me two days leave. As you can see, I am not able to write beyond this….

Thankfully yours,
Jamshed V Rajan

First things first, not necessarily in that order….I have been very busy lately. Ibibo has been keeping me busy. Real busy. I think it is a South African conspiracy to ensure India doesn`t sign the Nuclear Deal. Don`t ask me why South Africa doesn`t want India to sign the Nuclear Deal……for you never asked why Left doesn`t want it. Is it because they aren`t Right? (I hope you got the joke!)

While on the subject of politics, let me ask you a question: “How would a dyslexic person see the United Front?”

Answer: As Untied Front, of course.

If you have noticed, this blog post is about nothing in particular. Perhaps, I am a loser and that`s why am losing out to the Writer`s Block. I checked with my mother and she says it is in our blood…she said my grand pa once came third in a chess match.

As this blog post winds to a halt…I am getting a little scared. I don`t want my Writer`s Block to end because that would mean I have to write more blog posts.

To those of you who have mailed me that I take a long time between my articles, here is some bit of wisdom for you. How long is long? What is ‘long` depends on whether you are a blogger or a blog reader. Let me give you an example that you can relate to…have you ever sat on the potty and felt that you were long in the bathroom? I am sure your answer is a big “NO”! Now, stand outside, clutching your stomach and see how long it is before the door opens….

Dear bloggers, lock up your blog readers….Jammy boy has killed Writer`s Block and is lurking around town.

Good God! Thats one hell of a writers block.

Don’t panic!! Have you read O Henry’s short story about a clerk who becomes a writer. He then writes jokes for a living. One day his humour just dries up and he tries hard to be funny. He makes fun of his wife, always snoops around his children hoping to overhear their conversation in the hope of making a joke out of it. He makes his family wary of him. His friends dont talk to him anymore, afraid that he will make a mockery of them. And finally he gives up writing and takes up another job. And when he stops trying to be funny, gets his natural humour back. Phew!! There..I remember everything except the name of the story!!
