I've read many articles from writers who believe in writer's block and others who think it is an excuse and that it doesn't really exist. I am one who believes it DOES exist. You can have those "blocks," yes...they are terrible. If I've set time aside to write and I have a block, I use music to help me through it. If that doesn't work, I walk away for a while (plenty to keep me occupied - 3 kids). Most of the time, I'm lucky because I like to wait for something I call the "writer's bolt." I can be anywhere (driving, walking in a grocery store, working at my day job) and I'll get hit with a fabulous idea that is like the eureka moment. Once I'm home, it gets written down. I was just "struck by lightening," so-to-speak. THOSE are the moments that a writer needs to embrace.
