Do I Have Writer’s Block?

So it has been a little bit since I have put out a blog post and it feels like I am suffering from writers block. I’m not really sure if it is writers block but it sounds good, so I’m gonna go with it. I am sure it is not traditional writers block since I am a financial advisor that writes not a writer first and foremost. I have heard that musicians suffer from it regularly. John Reznik of the band Goo Goo Dolls suffered from a severe case of writers block after writing the hit song Name. The next hit he was able to write was a little song called Iris. He wrote it in a day and after 3 years of not being able to write anything he was able to pen this amazing spell binding ballad. It spent 18 weeks at #1 on the charts in 1998. It went on to be ranked the 39th Greatest Pop Song of all-time as ranked by Rolling Stone.
