Writer’s block—myth or truth? What if I told you that you are in complete control of your writing inspiration and that it doesn’t control you? That there is no mythical bogeyman standing behind you, blocking all of your great ideas, laughing as you stare at the blinking cursor agonizing over the lack of words on the screen?

I’ve been there so often, in fact, that I decided to attack the problem head-on. No more bogeyman lurking over my shoulder, and no more waiting for some mystical muse to make an appearance.
