How to overcome writer’s block

“Lower your expectations.”

Dagan said this over a cup at the 11th Street Coffee shop.

A lot of great lines were born there. Like, “He has something you don’t…”

I had just found out my girlfriend Kelly was cheating on me. I stared at Dagan, incredulous. “Like what?”

“He’s an a–hole.”

Don’t let writer’s block get you down. Follow Dagan’s advice. Lower your expectations. It applies equally to certain relationships.

Now I thank God that Kelly and I didn’t stay together. And I’m grateful to my friend for his always timely advice.
