Writer's block?

No problem according to Charlie Brooker:

"Pay someone bigger than you to make your knees fold the other way if you don't submit eight hundred words by five o'clock. You'll be surprised what comes out."

I suspect it works for any other "block" too.

But amidst the levity there's a serious point here. "Work expands to fill the time available" is an immutable law of the universe.

So get a deadline.

And make the penalty severe for missing it.

You'll be surprised what comes out.
