Writer’s block comes in two forms: a general creative slowdown or a complete inability to write. It was first described by psychoanalyst Edmund Bergler in 1947, and well-known sufferers have included F Scott Fitzgerald, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip Charles M Schulz, British songwriter Adele, and it may well have been the reason Herman Melville gave up writing novels shortly after Moby Dick was published.
