"Writer's block is a condition, primarily associated with writing as a profession, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. The condition varies widely in intensity. It can be trivial, a temporary difficulty in dealing with the task at hand. At the other extreme, some "blocked" writers have been unable to work for years on end, and some have even abandoned their careers. It can manifest as the affected writer viewing their work as inferior or unsuitable, when in fact it could be the opposite."

To cast this spell you will need:
- Chinese Writing Stone (see photo above)
- Yellow Candle
- Road Opener Oil
- Steady Work Oil (optional)
Directions: In your sacred space, ground and center. When you are ready, cast a circle and then light a yellow candle before you. Hold the Chinese Writing Stone in your hands and meditate on it a few minutes. When you are ready, dab a little bit of Road Opener Oil on your finger and anoint the stone by rubbing your finger over it in a counter-clockwise circle. Chant:
"The page is blank, creativity stalls,
the words refuse to heed my calls;
remove all blocks, the way make free,
as I will so mote it be!"
If you are a professional writer, you may also wish to rub the stone with a bit of Steady Work Oil as well. Place the stone next to the candle and let it remain there until the candle is spent. Thereafter, keep the stone near you when you do your writing.
