I have heard this is very common, but I have never EVER had writer's block. I always have more to tell, and often may write the entire draft of a novel In one day. I post multiple fan fiction chapters a day and constantly work on my novel. I guess I just have sorta overactive imagination. When it comes to creating characters. I can always think of something new. What do you guys think about this topic?

I think that you're lucky.
I had writer's block for about three months (that sounds terrible) and hadn't written anything besides few forced lines.
Maybe fanfiction writing would have helped but I have my rule never to use anyone's work :)
When looking back that was probably not smart.

Every writer needs to find out if he's writing what he thinks others want to read, what they expect from him or if he's enjoying what he's writing.

I learned from my mistakes :)

I've been working on my first novel, and there have been some days where I spend hours writing without pausing, but there was one time in particular where every other line I had to pause and cringe at myself. A good way for me to get back in the writing zone is to turn on backround music.

I find that the beginning is really easy. I've heard that the end is also really easy. For me, and I think with people in general, it's the middle that's hard, and I've never gotten through a middle to see how hard the end is. (except in short stories, where there isn't really a middle, or if there is, it's usually miniscule)
Anyway, yes, I get writer's block, and it just gets worse the further into a story I go. I think it's because I don't plan out my plots well enough, so I get tangled and I don't know how to get my characters out of situations, or I need to get my characters into situations to advance the plot.
