Writer’s Block

Hello everyone. In case you haven’t seen me around lately it’s because I’ve been trapped behind a block wall.

A giant, impenetrable wall called “writer’s block”.

For those of you unfamiliar with such things, writer’s block is much like an unwelcome houseguest…it comes when you least expect it and sticks around far too long. And, like an unwanted and uninvited guest, you have to pry it out of your home (or in my case, my mind).

I’ve been held captive by writer’s block for about a month now, but today I finally managed to break free due to a fellow writer– Bill Cameron.

You see, last Thursday I attended a lecture of his and today I received a very helpful email in which he politely answered a follow up question I had regarding his speech.

After reading his suggestions and then escaping for a few hours with a pile of back issue Writer’s Digests, a ton of books, and countless cups of coffee, that pesky wall began to crumble. Hopefully by the end of the week it will be nothing but a big pile of rubble.  

Let the rewrites begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Cool! I’m glad that you’ve been able to overcome it!
    Most writers have to go through that once in a while, so it’s normal and all, but it sure is a pain to have to be dealing with it every now and then.
    Thanks for the posting the link since I’ve been having trouble with it.

  2. Thanks for the comment. My site is fairly new so comments are exciting 🙂

    I don’t know if you’ll find what you are looking for with the link I provided. It was just a link to another writer’s site, not to a site with specific tips on writer’s block.

    If you have any questions I’d be more than happy to help you out and provide you with links I found helpful (trust me, it’s all I’ve been doing for the past month)

  3. Writer’s Digest is always a helpful site. I visit it every day because they have a variety of information that changes daily.

    As for agent’s websites…Nathan Bransford runs a really great blog about all things related to literary agents and getting published.
