I ran into this video and thought it'd be great to share. I never thought about handling writer's block this way.

(Is there a way to embed videos here? All these years I've been on this site and I never actually knew)

Interesting take on it.

I feel like it can be applied to more than just writing, though. Kind of like when you're explaining something to someone and in the process you actually realise you just clarified some things for yourself you didn't even knew you got wrong. Like explaining things to someone, even if it's an imaginary reader, can help you understand the issue better yourself.

Very interesting... sort of like therapy, where you talk out your problems and eventually you'll start to realize what the root cause of your problems are and also find a solution to fix the problem. I might actually try it out. Thanks for the video!
