What does the Four of Swords mean?

RWS 2.0 Four of SwordsHere is a pithy meaning for the Four of Swords:
“Every writer I know has trouble writing.” — Joseph Heller

This card may indicate writer’s block, but it also suggests the solution to it, which is to step away from the task of writing for a while. In fact, this is true for any creative endeavor. How often have you been stumped when trying to find a solution to something, only to get an inspired idea about it while taking a break such as bathing? Indeed, there is a famous story about the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes exclaiming “Eureka!” when a solution to a previously intractable problem came to mind as he stepped into his bath.
