Discussion post 1:  This week, we were asked to share examples for overcoming writer’s block. There is evidence that setting a writing schedule can be beneficial. It is advisable to set aside uninterrupted blocks of time. Regular writing allows for production of more work and generation of new ideas.

Oddly enough, the wording will sometimes come to me...
