Writer's Block [Jan. 11th, 2008|08:45 am]
Useless Non-facts!


 The origin of the term "writer's block" came from 1600s France. Poets and authors experiencing difficulties in their trade were encouraged by doctors of the time to fiercely bang their heads on a "Writer's Block", a cube of baked clay or ceramic. This was believed to jarringly clear the mind of obstacles in the authors head, allowing them to focus better.
