Supercut: These 53 Movie Characters Suffer from Crippling Writer's Block, Too

Too bad it never looks as romantic as it does on a typewriter. 

Your fingers hover over the keyboard. Potential energy courses through your veins. The idea is there; you just need to access it. 

Ah, the great paradox of writing: when it isn't transcendent, it's torture. Screenwriters and novelists know this more intimately than anyone, which is why so many movies and books are populated with characters suffering from writer's block. From Adaptation to Misery to Mission: Impossible, here's a supercut, created by Ivan Kander and Ben Watts, to make you feel a little less alone as you stumble blindly in the dark on your way to that fabled inspiration.
