Writer’s Block No Crutch

A block of wood, no writer's block.

A block of wood, no writer’s block.

Writer’s Block No Crutch

Writer’s Block — there’s no such thing;
it’s an excuse to take a break.
Have you heard of Plumber’s Block?
Meat Cutter’s Block when trimming steak?

Writers and poets should not say
that Writer’s Block caused them to fail
to make money, achieve success,
receive acceptances by mail.

Writer’s Block is a piece of wood
with holes to store pencils and such.
The phrase was never intended
for writers to use as a crutch.
