Writer's Block is REAL
Omgoodness, I'm so close to the end of my book, but now I find myself stuck like Chuck. It's no playing matter as I'm ready to be done with this, so I can start another book. I've stopped cold against a brick wall. When that usually happens I set it aside and do a little art which is my favorite thing to do when I'm not writing. I brainstorm while I play, then I'm able to finish writing. Well peeps. That didn't happen. Rolling my eyes in disgust.
What's funny, is while I'm writing I get these other character's with their stories entering my mind. I'ts like this door opens and this fine man walks in and says, "Hey babe, come write my story." One of these characters I have been dreaming about for a few days. He's determined and demanding, the shit, but I have to finish what I started so I can get it edited and out to my readers.
In desperation, I emailed a great author friend and told her my plot, and she suggested I go back and re-read the last chapter. It took me two days after that to do it. Now, I think I'm good now. I actually want to write. WHAT? It worked. Laughs.
So, I have my coffee and I have to go to work later, so I'm off to write for a little while. Have a great day.
I do have a question. Do you like books that may not have a followup? Let me a message I'd love to hear from you.
Oh, my art is on Etsy if your interested. Here is the link.
