A Word on Wednesday: Writer’s Block


This noun with one, and only one, definition is a legitimate dictionary entry; its origin traceable to 1945. “A usually temporary condition in which a writer finds it impossible to precede with the writing b0c0e-writers2bblock2bof a novel, play or other work.” 

Take comfort; it is usually temporary.

However, beware of Writer’s Block’s cousin: “Blank Page Syndrome.” These ails are apt to keep charlatans, ahem writing coaches, in business.
