Writer's block

Here's my definition. When you spend years cracking the books on html/css because blogging seems doable, when you figure out how to work out the kinks in your blog entries so that the scanned cartoon you spent hours illustrating will have some accompanying dummy text, when you finally find a gig as editor for a small newsletter in a point in time when you outgrow drawing cartoons for film script blog entries which are scanned from the hard copies of a manual typewriter, it's a good chance your idea of good writing is a conundrum.

Because, being editor, even if I was asked to write a short summary on my trip to Sturgis, how fun is it typing on my manual typewriter just to submit my completed draft to myself so I can retype it all into my desktop publishing software?
