Being stuck at the start creates a special kind of frustration. Before you can even get going, you are tangled in knots, immobilized, virtually paralyzed. Your skills and bright ideas desert you like rats realizing they’re about to go to sea on a leaky ship. Suddenly you cannot write a single respectable sentence or sustain the simplest chain of thought. Then it gets worse.
After a very short dose of this, you’re ready to throw up your hands and quit. Many writing projects grind to a halt before the end of the third paragraph.
