phrase of writer
The condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.
That should sound familiar to just about everyone. Everyone has experienced it in some form or another, and amazingly, it doesn’t just happen to writers. Public speakers fall into this problem, even if they have a script in front of them. Musicians run into it all the time. It is generalized into the inability to move forward on the task at hand due to your brain remembering that it is secretly holding you hostage.
