What I consider to be a better name for what's commonly called "writer's block".

If you've ever tried to write at least a long story; something where the characters run away from you and start doing their own things, fucking up your plot, and suddenly you can't understand any better than they why the trees are blue or the temperature is so abnormally hellish...one of your good guys is suddenly a pedophile, or one of your bad guys goes soft in a critical situation, or a meteor comes out of nowhere and changes everything...you know what I mean.

Made-up people aren't any more stable than the living ones, especially when they're trying to live in a brain as crowded and chaotic as mine. But if you've ever tried to marshall a story out of a flood of human-tinted ideas and half-random talent, you know what it's like to be Lost For Worlds.
