Something has to be Sacrificed

20 Nov

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.”
Yup. I’m a non-believer when it comes to writer’s block. I’m just that stubborn. Click here, to find out why.
And as always, here are my favorite candy offered as Starburst of Thanks for Megan who rocks.
