Writer’s block

Writer’s block is a rather controversial topic. There’s lot of dispute about whether it exists, and exactly what it is. I’ve always thought of writer’s block as the feeling you get when you’re trying to write or type, and you just can’t, for some reason, actually get any words onto the paper or computer screen.

Some famous writers refuse to acknowledge that writer’s block exists and think that it is a load of nonsense. For many of these writers, it probably doesn’t exist, because they refuse to let it get in the way of their writing - they always find a way to start writing. And therein lies the key to avoiding writer’s block or making sure it doesn’t exist for you - finding ways around it.
