Causes and Cures of Writing Blocks: An Annotated Bibliography.
Boice, Robert
To provide a broad view of writer's block and the composing process, this annotated bibliography includes 100 sources that discuss (1) early views of blocking, e.g., Freud's warning about internal critics; (2) contemporary curatives, e.g., cognitive therapies that purport to change a writer's inhibitory self-talk; (3) successful writers' accounts of past blocking, e.g., Joan Didion's recollection of feeling she had suffered a small aphasic stroke; (4) scientific assessments of writing problems, e.g., Daly and Miller's Writing Apprehension Scale; (5) differences in conceptualizing and treating blocks, e.g., psychoanalytic vs. behavioral; and (6) ways to make writing less painful for all writers.
