Yesterday, my composition students brought up something called ‘writer’s block’ and shared with me different ways they try to overcome it. Some said they liked to eat a snack. Another girl said she liked to take a nap. Another girl said she liked to return to her research and read more. I said that during the summer of 2007, if I felt stuck on something, I took a shower. This led to my taking several long showers each day. I ceased this practice once my wife showed me the utility bill. What do you do to overcome ‘writer’s block’?
