Is Composers Block Real?

I'm seeing a lot of people complain about composers block and a lot of people saying that composers block is just an excuse to not create. What are your thoughts on the subject?

Auditions for The Musescore Virtual Orchestras

I want to start on a huge project, that requires the help of everyone! Much like Eric Witacres's Virtual Choir, I will be compiling recordings of a large number of people, into one track.
Auditions have started and will run through the 13th of June. The piece we will be performing is most likely going to be one of my original compositions and will be a huge undertaking.
As of right now, we are short of String players and Vocalists, but all auditions are welcome. If you are interested or would like to audition, the link is below and you can email me, at the email below.
The link is http://musescore.com/groups/virtual-orchestra-group
My email is: xak_robinson@hotmail.com
Thank you for everyone's support !!!

The Gods and Titans

I have recently started a suite titled: “The Gods and Titans”
I have been working diligently on this Suite and I want to show off the work I have put in to making this one of my most ambitious, and yet rewarding, projects to date.
You can view all of them using these links:

My First movement in the suite, dedicated the god Hephaestus-

My Second movement, which, I must unfortunately say, is still incomplete; dedicated to the god Hermes-

My Third, and what I consider being one of my greatest pieces, Athena-

And finally my most recent addition to my suite, Prometheus, The Bringer of Knowledge-

I’d love to hear what the general public thinks of my suite as of right now!
Thank you everyone so far for making this one of my most successful projects to date!

A Career as a Composer - Controversial

Through out my whole life I have always had a sort of debate. Whether I should major in architect or composer. I do both very well. I've start architect ever since 5. I have been able to make small blueprints for small houses and small barns. But Music is my life. Ive started music when i was 4, starting with one year of violin, and then from 5-16 (present) as a trumpet musician. Composing has always been one of my favorite dreams. But my parents say it won't get you anywhere if you are unable to sell your compositions.

But ever since I discovered Musescore.com last year in 2011, i have composed more than 15 compositions, some that last as long as 3-6 minutes. And then drum corp/marching band arrangements of newly existing music. I feel like this is the right decision for me. But there are some questions i need to answer such as

How much can i charge for a composition/how much does it cost?
Who can I go to, to publish my pieces/what company can i go to?
Where are the best universities near NJ to major in composition?
Where can I start my career/How can i start my career?

There are other questions that I can ask myself, but i dont know them. That is why im coming to you guys. I need some feedback. Because Im nearing junior year soon and then senior year will go by fast. I need a decision by the time I go to college.
