‘I don’t believe in writers’ block. Plumbers don’t get plumbers’ block. Why should writing be the only profession that gives a special name to the difficulty of working.’
Well said. I call "writer's block" by its correct name: LAZINESS. If something doesn't flow, put it aside and work on something else. I purposely have four or five projects of varying size and topic going at any given time. Something becomes a bit stale, I set it aside and take up something else, until I get back around to the 'slow' bit. With new perspective I often find that it is anything but slow at that point.

‘A writer is a maker, not a man of action: his private life is of no concern to anybody but himself, his family and his friends.’
A person in a bookstore once became quite incensed when I wouldn't answer personal questions about my life. I told him, I was there to discuss the reason for being there, and that was NOT my autobiography.
