Writer's Block, Real or B.S.?

I just read a fascinating column today on writer's block by Dan Brown of the London Free Press. He states that writer's block is basically a good excuse writer's get to use. Brown said that relying on inspiration instead of hard work is the issue behind writer's block.

Brown has a point. I have yet to find the "easy button" when it comes to writing. If I had my behind would be sitting in the Bahamas right now as I watched my bank account balance sail into the millions. Instead you find me tapping away working for a living.

Have I had writer's block, yes. Should it EVER be an excuse to miss a deadline? Absolutely not. What's your take? Writer's Block - Real or B.S.?
