This essay by Fairfield University professor Elizabeth Boquet on how her writing productivity suffered when she switched from teaching to administration is a perfect illustration of the principles that:
1) procrastination/writers block/underproductivity are always caused (versus being some kind of intrinsic moral flaw like "laziness" or "lack of discipline");
2) the causes are always outside ourselves, in our current or past contexts; and
3) it's *far* more productivite to problem-solve around the causes than succumb to shame, blame, or guilt.
4) THE PROBLEM IS SOLVABLE.
