Here's an excerpt:

I don’t believe in writer’s block. I mean, are there times when it’s tough to put words to paper? Absolutely. But, writing is a much more expansive and coaxing practice than “putting words to paper.” It is reading and thinking. It is exchanging ideas. It is wondering. It is experimenting. It is reckoning and recognizing. And then, yes, it is putting words to paper. In my experience, when the words-to-paper part comes hard, that means it’s time to move toward something else for a little while. It’s time to read more. It’s time for a walk or a nap. It’s time to talk to somebody. And then, yes, sometimes it’s time to put words to paper; and that part isn’t always pretty. Sometimes words come slow. Sometimes there are long periods when they don’t come at all. That isn’t writer’s block. It’s just writing.
