Just because I wrote the single greatest work in the English language, that doesn’t mean I don’t suffer from writer’s block every now and then. We all reach a point when the ideas run dry and it feels almost impossible to go on. I’ve found two reliable methods to combat this over the years. The first is to sacrifice the heart of a virgin to the demon Pazuzu. Granted, he’s a trickster demon, but he almost always holds up his end of the bargain and infuses you with a burst of creative energy. The second method is to take a long walk surrounded by nature. My experience has been that both methods work equally well, so I recommend choosing based on the weather.
