It's annoying. Plenty of stuff going on in the world is begging to be commented on. There's a couple of posts bubbling under about "theoretical issues". But can I write? Nope.
It's strange. Sometimes the crap can't flow out of my fingers fast enough, even if there's nothing going on. I don't know. How do you overcome that sense of ennui that settles upon you when you get into your blogging interface? Do you just write any old crap? Do you procrastinate? (A bit of a problem if blogging is your preferred means of procrastination). Does a blog about blogger's block jump start your engine? Can Twitter and Facebook unplug your creative juices - when they're not giving you cancer?
It would be interesting to hear what strategies other comrades employ to keep the block at bay.
