I decided to write about the myths of divorce.
My block was due to two overlapping factors: laziness and lack of discipline.
For a long period in my life - it lasted about 10 years - I had writer's block.
I deleted all the games from my computer. I spent days trawling the Internet. I started slowly.
My inner critic who had begun piping up about how hopeless I was and how I didn't know to write.
My biggest excuse to others and myself was that I had writer's block, as if it was some kind of illness.

If you really want to write, then shut yourself in a room, close the door, and WRITE. If you don't want to write, do something else. It's as simple as that.

A wonderful emotion to get things moving when one is stuck is anger. It was anger more than anything else that had set me off, roused me into productivity and creativity.
