Is writers block just something in the head? It is quite odd. Sometimes I feel like I get it. Where I cannot really get motivated to do any work. However, it only happens when I have very little work, when I am snowed under, I easily manage to write everything that i need. I think it may be more like a way that your brain sometimes forces you to slow down and have a rest when it knows you do not have to be working really hard. I am sure it happens in all jobs, not just writing as well.
