Writers Block: Recent scientific findings on the subject aside, the most effective treatment remains an old Russian home-remedy. Many thanks to my dear friend Rodnya Raskolnikov, who shared this insight with me many years ago.
It works like this: Read some classic Russian literature (or just “literature” as the locals there call it). Anything will do, but I personally suggest Dostoevsky’s “Crime & Punishment”, or Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina”. Read it to somebody you love. If you don’t have anyone and nobody loves you, then read it to yourself. Now, … carefully collect their (or/and your own) tears in an empty glass. After each chapter mix what you collected with vodka (no ice). Drink!
This works like a miracle according to Rodnya. Rodnya must know since he suffered from writers block all his life. Come to think of it, … the useless drunk never published anything!
