Writing’s always fun when you have something to write. But when the well runs dry, you might find that you’ve got writer’s block.
But what is writer’s block? Is it even a real phenomenon? And if it is, what can we do about it?
As the late Sir Terry Pratchett once said, “There’s no such thing as writer’s block. That was invented by people in California who couldn’t write.” Okay, possibly. But I think there’s also a common misconception about writer’s block in general: that it’s a condition where you are literally incapable of writing. I don’t believe in that either, Terry.
