Two minutes ago I thought I had a good idea, suddenly it seems stupid and irrelevant. Then I feel that everybody else would be able to do it better than I ever could. I am caged in my own shell. I can´t even start. I judge myself before I can write down a single letter. Every word I write feels banal and stiff.
So what I do is this: I watch a movie or series about a creative and productive person I admire until I adapt the mood and I can write again. The writer's block loosens the moment I stop comparing myself and my work with others. When I forget the outside world and just allow myself to like what I am doing. When I forget about trying to achieve something important, qualitative and final. (less)

Undine The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories

Favorit Stories: "I kill for money" and "even artichokes have doubts"

Favorit Quotes:
"How can I chance the world as a twenty-one- or twenty-two-year-old?" she said. " I know that´s a very pessimistic view, but I don´t feel like I have enough knowledge or experience to step into those shoes."

"Everything seemed worthy of retelling and I´d struggle to stop stories before I started."
