Nelson has some good points, but "direct and to-the-point" her style is not; denser than it need have been.

Editorial Review from

"Writer's block is almost certainly older than the first written word. In this liberating book, Nelson explores how writer's block can be turned into a positive experience by listening to and learning from the unconscious, which often is attempting to suggest a better approach to the task at hand. By clarifying the origins of writer's block, Nelson allows you to transform annoying conceptual and emotional obstructions into beneficial tools and building blocks for creativity. Recommended."
