I find the concept alien. I reckon I'll need three or four lifetimes to get through the list of ideas I have for stories. If I have a bad day, I just lean forward and keep dragging the plough through muck. Maybe part of the reason I never suffer from writers block is that I do a lot of daydreaming and developing scenes in my head. To the observer, it may look like OCD when I repeatedly open and close doors or walk in small circles, but it's actually because I'm in the middle of an imagined conversation between characters. By the time I sit down and start writing I'm normally racing to empty the contents of my skull. I never look at a blank page and sigh, that's for sure. (less)

If you can't write because you don't feel like it, that's not a great sign. If you've run out of ideas, that's also a worrying sign. Either way, I don't like it when people present it as some sort of affliction. It's not. My advice to people who think they're suffering from writer's block is to suck it up, and keep typing. More often than not, without realising, you'll click into 'the zone' and forget that there was a hurdle. (less)

So when we had a chance to drive to the tip of the Northern Territory for a few hours of recreation, we took it, smoking and relaxing, enjoying the untouched wilderness.
