You may lose motivation or confidence, or feel as though you have no good ideas, but a serious writer will continue to write, regardless. No one ever talks about banker's block or teacher's block; whatever your chosen profession, you continue to do it even when you don't feel like it. You keep going until it passes, because if you chose to be a writer, you know yourself well enough to know that your motivation will eventually return.
Recreational writers talk about writer's block, too, and I don't understand that. If it's something you do in your free time because you love it, and you don't love it any more, why keep trying? If you're one of those who only writes when feeling inspired, go do something else until your inspiration comes back. Read or learn woodworking or pick up a part-time job or volunteer somewhere. Inspiration comes from experiences.(less)

The Medium by M.R. Graham
“Conscious access to memory is a unique trait of living things, but memory itself is not. It's encoded in the minute vibrations between elementary particles. Our entire universe is built of information given shape. Part of that is its history. Its memory.”
