This is a guest post by Karol K from Online Business Design blog.

A couple of months ago I wrote a post on how to kill writer’s block. Of course, it’s much easier said than done, so I figured that another follow-up post is in place here.

Last time the main 3 ways of fighting writer’s block was to:
