      How about this for dedication to the art of writing:

      Wilbur Smith, a multi millionaire top selling author of
      African adventure stories, starts writing
      a new book on February 6th every other year.He thinks up the
      beginning months beforehand then allows the plot and characters
      to 'soak into his mind'

      Obviously he never suffers from the infamous writers block, the well
      tried excuse for a lazy mind.

      Pick up a Wilbur Smith tale and you'll be hooked from the first page.
      Here's an example:
      "The river lay heavily upon the desert,bright as a spill of molten
      metal from a furnace. The sky smoked with heat haze and the sun beat
      down upon it with all the strokes of a coppersmith's hammer. In the
      mirage the gaunt hills flanking the Nile seemed to tremble to the
      blows.
      Lostris was fourteen years of age. The Nile had begun its latest
      flood on the very day that her red woman's moon had flowed for the
      first time" etc etc.
      Extracted from "River God" by Wilbur Smith.

      Don't talk to me of writers block. It's a figment of ones imagination
      of which a true writer never suffers.

      As always
