Sometimes a story just catches your eye, like this one about the six-sided writer’s block - “a small cube-shaped creature that can fit in the palm of your hand, which shows up on a writer’s doorstep after it smells the tasty prose inside…” As the author notes, it is important to know all six sides if you ever want to get rid of the little bugger:

  • Hypnotic eyes that distract you from writing
  • Dancing feet that force your hands from their task
  • Flatulence that smells of your favorite foods
  • Freezing temps that make you want to crawl up somewhere cozy
  • Music that gets stuck in your head
  • ESP that causes others to interrupt you when you finally get on track

Of course, once you identify it, you’ll need a book and a butterfly net to actually rid yourself of the fella’. A must read if you’ve ever had (or are currently experiencing) a writer’s block of your own.
