So the lovely Ms. Morgan was nice enough to invite me over to her blog Writer’s Block to talk about….well….the horror that is writer’s block.
Merriam-Webster defines writer’s block as a psychological inhibition preventing a writer from proceeding with a piece. Though I’m sure quite a few writer’s would use different terms to describe it. Terms that maybe we don’t use in polite company.
Me? I don’t believe in writer’s block.
“Now, that isn’t to say that I don’t have trouble. I have entire months where it’s like pulling teeth and every word – every LETTER of every word – is painful. And I have months where I write and write and write and then wake up and realize that back on page 50 I made a horrible decision and now my whole plot is a tangled hopeless mess. Or that the great story idea I had in my head turned to utter rubbish once it was put down on paper. Or my revision is useless because I can’t see past the forest of text I’ve already put down. Or I have no good ideas to begin with.Every single one of those things has happened to me and I still don’t believe in writer’s block.”
