'I don't believe in it (writer's block). All writing is difficult. The most you can hope for is a day when it goes reasonably easily. Plumbers don't get plumber's block, and doctors don't get doctor's block; why should writers be the only profession that gives a special name to the difficulty of working, and then expects sympathy for it?'

Jim Butcher (of "The Dresden Files" and others) had a similar response to being asked "Do you ever get writer's block?":

"Writer's Block is for people who don't have a mortgage."
