Can you have âwriterâs blockâ if you are not said writer? Yes, yes you can. Take it from me. We have started doing this thing in our editorial department where everyone gets to write a column...that includes myself. I would say I am not a writer by nature. I have taken all kinds of English/writing classes but that does not make me any more prepared for this. I journal often, that consists of a lot of gibberish, free form, whatever I want to say and no sense has to come from it. Once again, does not prepare me for this.
