Pieter Stalenhoef is an experienced financial industry professional who is currently working as a financial planner. Not many people know that he is also an aspiring novelist who turns to write when not working. His dedication can be estimated from the fact that he has almost completed writing two books. As he spent so much time writing, Pieter realized that what people refer to as writer's block is nothing more than an excuse.

Pieter has come to observe that writers who fail to undertake proper planning and/or are engaged in work that lacks clear structure are more likely to come across writer's block because they have little idea about how to proceed with their writing. His observations also suggest that in most cases, the writer's block arises simply because the writers do not give their ideas enough time to germinate before attempting to commit them to paper.

In addition to writing, Pieter Stalenhoef also enjoys spending his time doing photography or cooking when not working.
