Pieter Stalenhoef is an experienced financial services administrator who is also an aspiring novelist. He absolutely enjoys writing outside of work and is currently working on two books. Working on these books, Pieter has realized that writer's block is nothing more than an excuse.

Pieter Stalenhoef believes that writers who have failed to undertake proper planning and/or are engaged in work that lacks clear structure are more likely to suffer from writer's block because they have little idea about how to proceed with their writing. He has also observed that in some cases, the writer's block arises simply because of the fact that the writers have not given their ideas enough time to germinate before attempting to commit them to paper.

Pieter Stalenhoef has been working at the Boston office of Wells Fargo as an equity analyst for more than 10 years now. In addition to writing, Mr. Pieter spends his time doing photography or cooking when not working.
