it’s not just writer’s block. it’s a mental block. i’m trying to get some ideas going by remixing older jokes, seeing if there are new beats to be had in the set-ups. but then my brain won’t let me deliver the jokes the way i want. i thought i was happy with the set i conjured up for tonight’s mic, but i couldn’t sell it & most of it fell flat. meanwhile, everyone around me kept crushing everything. i’m trying to not let it get to me but my god - it’s really getting to me.
i don’t know if i should continue to power through or if i should take a breather for a few days. ultimately, i just have to believe that i’ll catch a break and things will start clicking for me again.
