In the Lord of the rings Simgol calls the golden ring his precious. An all consuming greed fills him to have it, he wants it. Anyone who sees it wants it only one hobbit who is pure of heart can carry it to the fires of destruction without been affected by it’s power.
I know a man in his 8th decade who carries a gold coin minted in the times of the Maccabees who swears his business and personal wealth comes from the possession of this coin. Maybe it does maybe it doesn’t, who knows. The cost of possession of such items comes at a great price Smigol goes to his death in the Moulton lava with the ring.
It would be interesting to see what happens to the man with the coin.
The fear of the blank page or the empty word document is something that all people not only those who write as a proffesion face each time that they sit down to write a post, an email or the proverbial thousand words a day.

If the same principal was applied to cities and countries that suffer a terror attack like the resent attacks in France, would it not make sense to apply the same principal as mentioned above with slight variations I.e. total shutdown of the media for the period required to apprehend the guilty, and deprive the terrorist organisations, the opportunity of using the shock and fear generated by the attacks as a tactic to gather support for their cause.
Secondly, all communication other than emergency services to be shut down to prevent the news spreading across social media, and deprive the terrorist using this as a tool to spread their message.
