Sometimes feeling blocked is guidance

I finished the first draft of my book a few months ago and wanted to send parts of it to Ben to get his permission/feedback as he is mentioned in a few chapters. For some reason each day I felt like I wanted to, but something blocked my simple act of just sending it to him. (As a side note, he lives in South Dakota, U.S.) This went on for 3 months and I was curious as to why I felt blocked. Finally yesterday after prayers I felt it was time and wrote to him to ask the best way to get him the chapters. He wrote back an hour later and said I had better email it to him because he was travelling and was in Melbourne at the moment. So here we are.
