If you have writer's block does it mean you are lacking in a passion to write about?
Good question, and I don't think so. I think it's a sign you should invest your energy in other aspects of your life (that we writers often neglect). Whenever I get writers block, I start reading literature. It's the best way to expand your repertoire as a writer. Take care and relax. Your muse will return soon (she's probably taken a short vacation).
No matter what anyone does there will come periods of time when the mind needs to rest from constant repetition. That is what "writer's bock" is, forcing the individual to think about something different for a while to prevent what is termed "mental breakdown".
No matter what passion one has there will come times when they have to "vacate" from it for allowing the elimination of excessive baggage from one activity. That is why vacations are required, children need breaks from studying and "rest and recuperation" is required for military personnel act war.
Thereby, my answer is NO, the mind has need of taking into it something which has been depleted by the constant indulgence.
Love this question. I do think that there is a lack of passion. Your body and mind might not be in sinc. But it could also mean that the person is putting too much pressure on herself and not enjoying the act or process of writing. Sometimes you have to give yourself permission not to write.
Yes, I think it would mean you most likely are. Of course, it depends on how long the writer's block lasts. If it's only a temporary glitch that stems your creative flow, you'll soon be back to your keyboard with renewed impetus. But if it continues for months on end, you might need to give yourself a pep-talk.
Before the advent of the Internet, I had writer's block occasionally when I couldn't think of anything new to write about to read at the writing group I attended. But nowadays with so many resources at your fingertips, writer's block is a bit of a poor excuse. With all the online forums, writing tools and groups for writers to give each other support and encouragement, writer's block should be a thing of the past. Those who do suffer from it for any lengthy period are probably unimaginative or perhaps they aren't really writers at all if they are lacking the inspiration and passion to write.
