Writers’ Block isn’t real! There, I’ve said it. I know, madness, right? But no, it’s true, writers’ block doesn’t exist and here’s why.
Writers’ block is a myth perpetuated by writers who have run out of things to say, whose idea doesn’t have legs or who haven’t prepared their screenplay/novel outline properly. “Oh no, I’ve hit a wall on page 30!” That’s because you didn’t plan your beat outline, sometimes called a scene by scene, well enough, not because you’ve hit an actual wall. You should really only run into problems if your planning is lacking and your idea is poorly thought out.
