writer's blocked by concepts

I have two big collections, the first one started as a bunch of spontaneous songs but then I wrote out an outline for it and the rest fell together very deliberately without any blockage, the closer I got to the end the easier the material fell into place.
The second collection started with the same steam as the first finished, now I'm on the last two or three songs and I'm blanking. I averaged about a song every two months. These last couple songs have taken over a year.

I read that there was a curse on 'the 10th symphony' where composers would die before finishing their 10th. But Mahler set his goal to surpass it and he crushed it.

Sounds like you need some 'filler'. Write a few quick fluff garbages and finish the big work, then take those fluffs and edit the shit out of them. I feel like most albums and books have some fluff to them, like DBZ vs. DBKai. Good luck
