9780395647271: On Writer's Block

In an extensively revised edition, rich with anecdotes and exercises, Nelson defines the true nature of writer's block--viewing it as a positive element in a writer's growth, rather than a source of guilt or frustration--and shows writers how to reestablish contact with their creative selves. "Clearly written . . . full of interesting and valuable insights."--Ellen Gilchrist.

Review:

Writer's block is almost certainly older than the first written word. In this liberating book, Nelson explores how writer's block can be turned into a positive experience by listening to and learning from the unconscious, which often is attempting to suggest a better approach to the task at hand. By clarifying the origins of writer's block, Nelson allows you to transform annoying conceptual and emotional obstructions into beneficial tools and building blocks for creativity. Recommended.
