Writer’s block: The phrase might induce panic. It’s a common phenomenon. So what is it and why do we get it?
At the beginning of a new writing project, a writer might find his or herself blocked – stuck in front of a blank page or screen with no thoughts coming to mind.

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke explain the ins and outs of how and why we sometimes get stuck – and what we can do to help ourselves in those difficult situations.
