When screenwriter John August wrote that only non-writers get writer’s block, some readers whined (and personally attacked him).
“But getting blocked does happen to real writers!” they cried.
They cried because they wanted to be victims, instead of responsible for their writing blocks. They whined because it was easier and less scary than facing the facts.
But when your income depends on your ability to write, whining won’t get you anywhere. It will distract you from the golden opportunity that writer’s block always offers: greater clarity and confidence.
