If you’ve ever watched a movie about a struggling writer, you’ve heard of writer’s block. It’s that nasty plague that chases your muse away, right? But is this something that happens to actual writers?
I’ve spoken with hundreds of writers on their productivity, and I’m going to say yes… and no.
Broken down, Writer’s Block is the simple act of time passing and writing not getting done. And to be clear, that happens to most, if not all writers at some point, so if it’s happening to you, you’re not alone.
But there are many reasons this might be happening and figuring out what kind of Writer’s Block you’re experiencing is the key to resolving it and getting back to the good work of writing.
