A Series of Unfortunate Events. Even the title is enough to spark interest for its sheer cleverness.

A ghostwriter is a professional writer hired by someone to write a book that will feature the employer’s byline (for instance, Bob Jones would hire John Smith, a ghostwriter, to write a book. John would do most of the work, but the published book would say “by Bob Jones”).
I started writing a post about writer’s block, but it wasn’t working. I know that sounds like a gag opening, but I’m serious.
It was going to list the types of writer’s block and some tips for conquering it. I wrote the whole post but all I was saying was “keep working” or “take a break.” So instead I’m just going to talk about my personal experience with writer’s block, and how I deal with it.
