We’ve never believed much in the concept of writer’s block. To us, it seems like something formed by external circumstances rather than an inability to put words to paper (clearly, we’ve never suffered from this). The New Yorker explores the concept of writer’s block and some possible reasons, including the usual suspects: depression, alcoholism, fear. And the Literary Saloon counters with a concept that makes us laugh: perhaps some authors should be a tad less prolific (more blocked). On one level, we must agree. On another…writing doesn’t always pay the bills; sometimes writing in volume does.
