Writer’s Block

As an English major, I am clearly required to read and write, a lot. There are a lot of other skills that we learn as English Majors, such as analyzing, problem-solving, critical thinking, etc. However, we express most of our thoughts and ideas with language, usually through papers. I am taking an Honors course titled “Great Ideas: Truth” this semester. We just got our first paper assigned, and I am experiencing writer’s block beyond belief. I literally have no idea what to write. The prompt is complicated, the talks are philosophical, and I feel way out of my element. It is uncomfortable. However, I think it is okay for me to experience discomfort. Because I have to think so much about this essay, it might actually end up being better than expected! The nice thing about school here is that the professors have office hours and are available to make an appointment with if we feel that is necessary. I think I just might do that because right now, I am going to be staring at a blank screen for a really, really long time.
