Let’s face it, some days we writers just can’t create characters, plots or even full sentences. The mind fills with static and the magic is gone. I’ve faced the dreaded writer’s block and here is my advice on how to deal with your writer’s block:
1. Keep writing.
2. Look to those who inspire you.
3. Talk it out with friends.
4. Take a break and enjoy all the beautiful things in life.
These work every time. So does a good cry and a shot of vodka. Seriously, when writer’s block lies in your path, don’t sweat it. Even a muse needs a vacation once in a while.
OMG! I stayed up reading “The Next Shakespeare!” Awesome! Five paws!
Tristan Gunner—skateboard fanatic, junk food junkie, award-winning poet. But you’d think he just got detention instead of the school’s grand prize for poetry. And even though Chris won five Math and Science awards, the next Einstein is crying because he’s not the next Shakespeare. Astra wants them both to cut the drama, and caught between a mortified winner and a crybaby loser, she hopes Chris can get over his attitude before World War Three erupts in her kitchen.
