Four unconventional cures for writer’s block.

Writer’s block. It’s a topic that has inspired a veritable deluge of books, ebooks, prompts, studies, articles, web sites, blog posts, and unsolicited advice [and if you’re a subscriber, I guess that’s what I’m doing here, isn’t it? Advising unsolicitedly].

I think the best fixes come from a little fun and lateral application:

1. You may have tried the cure-by-shower method. But did you know that there’s now a soap that promises to lubricate your language (when combined with vodka)?

2. This mug facilitates cure by caffeination:

4. If all else fails, you still have ice cream:

You have no more excuses. Get writing.

Enjoy your words,
