Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in America on writer's block:
It's going to take a vast amount of travel and brain-twisting; I have no idea what I'm going to write, but if nothing else I expect to learn a lot, and that's the only part of writing I enjoy. The actual work---the typewriter horrors---I approach with fear and loathing. Maybe that's why I've written almost nothing for the past year; I wasn't broke enough. I didn't need the money, so all I did was a few articles on hippies.
