Such variables as mental block, self confidence, and self concept were reflected with the students’ writing performance of English Department of STAIN Jurai Siwo Metro. The students’ perception toward writing subject caused the writer’s block. I believed that journal can be an alternative medium to solve the students’ mental block problem.
