It is kind of interesting to see the various articles and blogs out there, stating that writer’s block doesn’t exist.  I get where they’re coming from.  For some, writer’s block is what I call the Don’t Wannas: the feeling that I’d rather be doing anything else fun.  For others, it’s the realization that they’ve written themselves into a corner and they’re not sure what to do about it.  For still others, it’s the fear that they’re doing it wrong that freezes any inspiration or creativity.

What I think these people are trying to say is that writer’s block doesn’t, or shouldn’t, exist, because there’s always a way to work around it.  They’re saying it as an affirmation, not as a truth.  That might work for some, and it may have worked for me in the past, but at this point I have to call it for what it is:  it’s blocking me from getting my work done, so ergo…

Writer’s block comes in all shapes and sizes, but however it looks, it’s a big pain in the ass.  The important thing is to learn how to work past it the best you can.
