So I'm flipping through my recent isue of Creative Screenwriting magazine, and I see an ad.
It basically says that if you have writer's block, try hypnosis.
WHAT THE FUCK??!?!!!?!
Are they out of their fucking minds?????
First of all, hypnosis is bullshit - No, please, don't send me any stories about your cousin from Tulsa who was hypnotized once and she clucked like a chicken. Your cousin from Tulsa fell off the potato truck when she was a baby, simple as that.
Here's one problem I have, you're ripping off some poor idiot writer (who's already poor as it is) who thinks they'll be cured of writer's block just by doing this. It's the same BS as smokers (getting hypnotized to quit smoking). If you want to quit, just freakin' quit, if you want to smoke, then smoke!
But not only is it a bullshit waste of money, no, I understand people trying to make a buck, even if it is some hypnotist-asshole. I'd be more pissed at the jackass "writer" who thinks they'll be cured of their writer's block by doing something like this.
Hey fuckwad, you got writer's block? Here's some ideas for you (besides NOT being hypnotized like a douche):
1. Walk around the block.
2. Watch Tv/Web surf
3. Take a nice drive
Or, and this one if my favorites for when I get some writer's block:
