Each Writer's Block ® comes with a prescriptive ‘insert,' promising to alleviate such common blocking symptoms as the likes of “Procrastination,” “Stuffy, runny sentences,” “Blank-page panic,” “Nobel-prize complex,” and “Terminal Literacy.”
From the insert:
“This major advance in writing therapy fulfills the need for an effective, long-acting remedy, providing comic relief for all block sufferers. Acts as a powerful writing stimulant and an antidote to the ravages of blank-page panic. Helps get rid of those annoying blockages and alleviates the painful discomforts of print-overdose.”
We are pleased to note that one quarter ($0.25) from the sale of each Writer's Block® paperweight will be applied towards the founding of Homeless Quarters chapters nationwide (please visit www.homelessquarters.org). We share the view that the most successful social entrepreneurship develops innovative solutions to challenging social problems and implements them on a large scale. Our hope is that giving back to the community will be baked into a company's working model whenever possible.
