(FoxNews) – Writer’s block is no fun for any author. But one writer has such a
severe mental blockage that he’s decided to step down from his job after three
decades in the business. 

For 30 years, Donald Lau has been the “Chief Fortune Writer” at Wonton
Foods, a manufacturer that touts itself to be one of the world’s largest
producers of fortune cookies. But now,Lau is leaving his position following
a long bout of writer’s block.

Lau recently stated, "I used to write 100 a year, but I’ve only written two
or three a month over the past year.”

Lau has been with the New York City-based company– which operates out
of Brooklyn and Queens boroughs, since the 1980s but a new push to
produce inspiring sayings that promote wellness and serenity has Lau
coming up blank.

Instead, James Wong, a nephew of the company’s founder, will now handle
the writing position. He’s already being trained by Lau.
