It wasn't funny but i managed to laugh because i do not know of any writer who has not suffered from writer's block. It does not have to transcend to brainy nothingness but a time frame when you must pause (i emphasise Pause) and reflect, edit, re-write and ponder on what your imagination crops up.
I don't know whether it's a natural occurence for writers to have writer's block but in my own case, it happened when i began my writing craft (and that was when i was 14 years old). It was a terrible and helpless situation, filled with ambiguity, cumbersome misplacement of ideas and trying so hard to write like James Hadley Chase.
With the advancement of technology and incessant information at one's disposal, all you have to do is get inspired and get cracking.
- The Internet is more than just a space. All the research you need to do is at a click of a button. (Though, i do not envy communist countries where information is greatly restricted.)
- Libraries are immensely useful in researching a non-generic issue.
