“Writer’s Block”

This is part III of our series on imagination.
Once in a while, many of us have experienced the writer's block and in this type of situations, it appears that our imagination has suddenly gone dry or worse, dead. This is most probably because we miss outside stimuli to awaken our treasure-chest of creativity and effervescent ideas. The solution, of course, is to be challenged in order for us to get started.

Being alone however is very difficult, unless we're able to “play” a game with ourselves of the “good cop, bad cop” kind. If we can't pull this out, we must get some external input and this often is the only way we can re-start the engine. Imagination needs outside stimulation and can't do well if it has to happen in a vacuum or if we don't have access to a set of skills that can be likened to that of multiple personalities...
