Satan Helped Me Write

If you truly repented and know you have been forgiven. None of these things matter anymore. What is the point of asking for forgivness? If the person still carries around the baggage of sin? You are a new creature. The slate has been wiped clean.

Blaming things on Satan is an easy cop out for writer's block - just saying.

If an action of a particular kind can come to fruition by indulging in the behaviours that lead an individual astray (from "our daily bread,") why would Satan not contribute to even writer's block? Temptation to those behaviours.

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn't exist.” - Charles Baudelaire

The new has come through Jesus Christ. Christ is King.

First of all never read a book of Roosh s. Would like to but no time yet. Too busy with house and kids. Do know Rooshs writing since 2014. Mainly articles from ROK and then the forum.
He s great with words that's for sure. Real talent who tries to keep it simple.
Satan helped me write. Could be true. Or just intellectual pride.
I remember his articles on "the game" which were great btw. I was already married back then and I was like: Man don't you see that the stuff that you need to attract a woman is in the way of keeping her? Well 5 years later and here we are! Maybe its diabolical or just intellectual blindness. Who knows.
But one thing is for sure. Roosh got the stuff to write a Dostoyevsky style grand novel. If he can focus on the characters. That's what Dostoyevsky is - character development. As opposed to American writers who focus completely on the action - like Kerouac in On the Road. Which is one of my favorites. Maybe I should check out American Pilgrim. The pilgrimage is one of my favorite literature genres - I have to admit. Anyway don't beat yourself up buddy. God forgives!
 
Jesus didn't write, he spoke. Only scribes and Pharisees made writing their main occupation. But then again Aquinas wrote and yet I (perhaps erroneously) presume he's pretty high up in heaven. But who are we to judge?

In a writing class years ago the professor gave us an exercise to write a paragraph about an unpleasant experience. Then he had us do the same thing only describing a pleasant experience. I would never have guessed how much harder it was to write a creative and colorful piece about something pleasant than it was about something unpleasant, but there was a remarkable difference in difficulty.

It is true that many of the most creative people tend to have experienced a lot of pain. Maybe if your creativity isn't as lurid as it once was, that means your pain is fading. Is that necessarily a bad thing?
in english class AT D.C.C. we had to write a paragraph about an indian sitting at a suttee
i got an A for a 15 minute exercize i burned my stupid AA degree afteward
a S.T.E.M dgree is a more valid measure of intellect,you cant do this with an stem degree, in a 15 minute exercise in class

I’ve been writing since 1999, when I created a blog before it was known as a blog on the free web space that my university offered me. For the two decades that followed, I have written millions of words, much of it about how to fornicate. There is a challenge in organizing the chaos in your brain into the coherence of the written word, so I had to develop many habits to make my living as a writer. Upon my turn to faith, I thought that writing would become much easier, since I was now sharing the good news instead of instructing men how to sin, but truth is writing has become harder than ever.

It wouldn’t be inaccurate to describe writers as degenerate alcoholics. The reason, I believe, is that writing creates so much mental tension that the flesh demands a release in the form of drink or other harmful behaviors that yield an immediate dose of caused pleasure.

There were three pillars of pleasure that allowed my previous writing: coffee, alcohol, and sex. Coffee would be taken first, to create a buzz in my brain that motivated my fingers to more effortlessly dance across a keyboard. Then I’d drink alcohol at night to relieve the stress of writing while also counterbalancing the jittery effects of the coffee. And then finally the orgasm, which I’d receive either manually through masturbation or through sex with a woman. The orgasm was usually the culmination of my reward for a writer’s job well done.

I have greatly underestimated how much those three rewards fueled my writing, because now that they have been removed, along with most of the monetary rewards and the infrequent but ever-present prospect of cheap groupie sex, it has become twice as hard to write. During a writing session, I stare at the blank screen and the blinking cursor in states of immobilization for longer periods than before. I have to construct little outlines for 800-word articles that I used to spit out in one go with no preparation. Every sentence I now type I must fight for, and only rarely do I enter a state of flow where the words are gushing out.

God gave me the talent to write and then Satan hijacked it for his own ends, coupling it with a constant need for pleasure. I have had to disconnect my talent from those pleasures and write for God’s sake, for the uncaused joy he gives me at times I cannot predict, for a greater reward that will not come in this life. I can still write well enough, as I hope you’d agree based on my output in the past year, but every little article has become a fierce battle now that I cannot “unwind” after a hard day.

How can I manage to write more books? I don’t have any worldly fuel to keep me going, and it’s obvious that my own power is weak. The answer must lie in my prayer rule and faith. Unless I have an idea that is approved by God, that will serve His plan for the salvation of my soul and those who read me, from where will I get the motivation? How will the river of words be transmitted from my mind to the screen? I know I will never earn as much money as I did in the past or reach the height of internet fame that peaked around 2016, so it’s for God alone I must do this. May He be pleased with all that I will write and share with the world.

Roosh,

Sorry to hear about what you're going through. I've noticed throughout my journey, that anytime I start doing things aligned with Christ or as my thoughts/prayer become closer to Christ, that attacks happen in various ways. Not every time, but often enough to take note. When I was living in sin, life was less difficult of a sort. It's hard to explain really, but I think you know it.

Take it as a sign that you're a threat to evil and satanic forces.

I would suggest instead of finding things to reward yourself after completing an article or chapters in a book, that to find things that are healthy that are rewarding too to just do on a regular basis.

It might sound silly, but to help with my desire to go out and meet new women, I started playing paintball again. And of course I'm not diminishing the power of prayer and faith at all of course. It's just one extra thing incorporate perhaps.

The key is to really reflect on the word of God and to ask Jesus to give you the words to say... but the reality is that writing about Jesus isn't nearly as popular as topics that Satan would push you to write about... which is why the BIble says wide is the road to destruction. More people will simply gravitate towards the demonic since that's what appeases the flesh. There are countless subjects to write about though to glorify the kingdom of God, and the rewards will be more than worth it, but Jesus even told us that since the world hated Him, the world will hate Us, so don't expect popularity.. but expect the joy of the Lord.
