Why do we have writer's block?

This is a question that I for one would love to know the answer to, as I myself have been struggling with writer's block for some time now.

Writer's block is very common among us writers and can be very frustrating, especially when you know you have great ideas for stories/ideas in your head and you can't seem to transfer your own ideas from your head onto the screen in front of you.

Who knows how or why we can get back into writing. When you are finally able to write again, It's as if something has been freed from your mind and as soon as you start writing that first sentence, the rest just follows and before you know it you've written an entire essay.

Until today, I haven't been able to write anything and it feels great to be writing again, and hopefully I'll be writing a few articles in the very near future without any more distractions.

How do all of you feel about writer's block, and how do you cope with having it?

Great article! I hate writers block. Normally if I have an idea at night, I'll scribble it down on my notepad next to my bed and develop it the next day. Places like coffee shops also inspire me. I don't know why! So weird.

Great article!

Lots of writers carry notebooks for scribbling ideas - you can have a great thought one minute, and then it's gone the next. It's true of my memory anyway!

Apparently the writing things down when in bed can also work for things that are on your mind and keeping you awake.

Heres something...
Whenever you don't know what sould happen next, always think of things that WOULDN'T happen first. List them down, and then eventually, you'll think of something :)
