Catching a tailwind

Writer's block happens to even the most prolific wordsmiths. For me, the "block" usually isn't not so much that I can't fill the paper, but that I can't fill it with something I like or that a client would approve, let alone love. Equally frustrating, maybe more.

There is a yin to the yang, though: Those blissful days when you can jam out a couple thousand words with seemingly no effort, and all of it (at least on first blush) pretty decent stuff. You can never predict when they'll come, but suffice it to say: When you catch a tailwind, keeping tapping as fast as you can for as long as you can.
