Anonymous asked: If you can’t continue writing the big story you are working on but can write something else, can it still be qualified as a writer’s block?

If you are experiencing a sensation of creative constipation, you might have “writer’s block”.

Fix it!

I’m not sure I fully understand your use of the word can’t in your message. You most certainly, absolutely can. The easiest way? Take a look at this quote from our article titled Done Planning. What Now?:

Put the pen on the paper and start writing words. Make sure you phrase those words into sentences and structure those sentences into paragraphs with dialogue and description (or not). Keep writing these sentences until you finish telling the story. Don’t stop until the whole thing is out there in ink on paper. 

Alternatively, you could do this on a computer. Or with a pencil.

The crux of it is this: The story is not going to get written unless you write it. So write it.

Thank you for your question!
