The most common complaint heard from creative writers concerns hitting that inevitable wall, referred to as writer’s block. If you don’t know what this phenomena is, let’s explain to you lucky writers. Let’s say you’re working on a novel.

You’re at a standstill. That’s writer’s block. Bad news.
Those first lines that seem so hard to come up with!
