Writing, as a concept, was invented to convey.

From carvings on cave walls to ancient languages on tablets to ink on parchments and photons coming out of your screen — the primary purpose was record-keeping.

Something would happen. That thing would yield helpful information. And that information would be the thing you record; that’s writing.

I find it hilarious to think of a caveman having a “Wall-Carving Block.”

And the reason a pre-historic human wouldn’t have writer’s block is that they very clearly had something to write about.

To have something to write about, we need to stop writing and do something instead.
