I don’t believe in writer’s block.
For me, it’s a symptom, not a disease. It’s the outcome of stress or depression (worry) and lack of motivation and inspiration -the disease that’s all affecting the mind which is the primary tool of a writer. If it exists, we can do nothing about it except wait until our minds are’nt diseased.
