That's called the "tip of the tongue phenomenon". Writer's block feels the same way. You feel like you know what you want to say, but you don't know where to start.

When Reviews Really Matter

Before I went to bed last night, I did something I don't normally do. I checked my reviews. That's a real double-edged sword when you're about to go to sleep. That's why I don't usually check them at night. Every author has experienced the exhilaration of an awesome review and the despair caused by a less than favorable comment. An author I've always admired is the great Shel Silverstein, and h... Read more of this blog post »

“When people climb a mountain, they don't stay there. They come back down and tell everyone they climbed a mountain. Writing a book is like that. If you write a book, you should tell everyone.”
