    ...That's called "not having writers block." To me, writers block is when you're sketching the same old shit and not coming up with anything new or inspiring. If you learned a new trick, you aint got writers block.

    i rekon (aimed at you proper) having writers block is kinda like being depressed, just atke a step back dont push it just step back and keep graff in the back of ure mind and ull come back into it fresher than ever.. well thats how i behave anyway i get really obsessive over stuff and then i forget about it then come back... its an endless cycle but yeah try that dont push writers block itll go away

    A couple months ago, I had a psychotic, enraged breakdown over my writer's block, that involved trashing my blackbook and emptying paint on the wall in a small circle repeatedly, and throwing things.

    I forget who said this (may have been Dare) Theres a point in your writing career that you feel like you've gone through it and done everything but if you keep going and get past that point it really pays off.

    probably whenever I'm putting symbolism in it someway or just really thinking about how I want the piece to go.

    but also probably when I'm feeling...emotional somehow, like if I'm really pissed off, thats kinda the only emotion I have since they all just lead up to that one. Thats when I just force myself to draw and ignore the other stupid shit, thats when I usually start accidentlly adding shit that could mean something.

    like if I decide I want an extension to go behind a certain letter then come out in front of the next one real big its kinda like I'm sneaky but I'm in your face too, ya know?

    I don't know, I usually try to think of a reasoning behind some of the shit I'm doing, sometimes you just throw an extension on the end of a letter 'cause you know you can put it there, but sometimes you know you wanna do cut-throughs through the whole piece 'cause you just wanna stab someone.

    But also, as far as writing block goes and not being able to get shit done, I can always tag, no matter what. Its quick and easy to write a single word, then you can just keep writing that word. If I can't get a piece right, at least I know I can get a good tag done if I keep practicing it on the same paper, sometimes after I do that I try 'n piece again...it doesn't always work. A tag is a small piece though, I get almost as much satisfaction from doing a really innovative, clean tag and imagining it all blown up, the letters in 3d and all colored.

    that usually works too. I have a few names that I write to keep things interestesting. If you get bored/stale with one name, switch it up to another for a while. Different names, different styles.
