Pressfield calls it resistance and says that the way to avoid this is to do the work. Plain and simple, just write something. Anything. Let your mind go and type.(less)

“She was truly beautiful, though that was not what drew him to want to know more about her. This woman of wealth and privilege had something else about her—and inner beauty—which he couldn't quite define.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo

“Flora Brimm was a Pinkerton agent's worst nightmare, the type of woman who would niggle her way into his thoughts at the oddest moments, work her way into his heart, and all the while irritate him beyond description.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo, Flora's Wish

“Do you love him?"
"No of course not, Grannama. Why on earth would I love Lucas McMinn?"
Another smile, this one much slower to grow into a broad grin. "Oh, dear, it's much worse than I expected. You're completely smitten and vexed all the same."
Ire rose, as did Flora. "Truly, Grandmama, I thought you were on my side "
"I am, dear. I just find it interesting that when i said him, you assumed I was speaking of Mr. McMinn." She gave Flora a pointed look. "You'd best get that sorted in your mind before you marry the wrong man.”
Kathleen Y'Barbo, Flora's Wish

“If you feel as if your legs have been cut from underneath you, get back up. If a door closes, don’t spend time staring at it. Be at peace and look for the open one. It’ll be there. Then, walk through it into the next phase of your life.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Never accept limitations.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Truth and the breastplate of righteousness—being right with God— strengthen us in all our endeavors. We need the shoes of preparation on any of life’s fields, along with the shield of faith—like football pads— to protect against the enemy’s attacks. The helmet of salvation, like a football helmet, also keeps us safe.
Praying each day and putting on the full armor of God will help us gain an automatic first down—a deeper connection in God’s zone— and a sure win on any playing field.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal

“No one gets an easy pass in life. We all meet struggles while pursuing our dreams. Sometimes our knees shake when facing giants, and sometimes our feet get knocked out from under us. Those are defining moments.”
Jake Byrne, First and Goal: What Football Taught Me About Never Giving Up

“Plowing through life, you’re bound to run into obstructions. Some of life’s trials result from mistakes and missteps, and some from poor choices. I know about that too, because I’ve made my share of blunders and had to face the consequences.
Other times, the unexpected lands in your hands like a wayward ball and the “trouble” coming at you is like a 250-pound linebacker blitzing straight off the edge.
”
Jake Byrne
