I don't know who said it, but I recently read that writer's block isn't a real thing. To some extent, that's true. The best way to get over the barrier of "writer's block" is to write. Maybe the starting point is elusive, but I have found writing prompts to be excellent catapults into the territory of the next story or crossing over to the next poetic line. I have found life itself will prompt me to sit down and contemplate the past, present, and future whether separately or simultaneously. Nothing is quite as effective as a deadline to force the issue and press words to paper or screen.
