A usually temporary psychological inability to begin or continue work on a piece of writing.
I’m really hoping the “temporary” will be over soon
Writer’s Block is not new to me. I’ve had it before and I got over it by starting fresh or ignoring my manuscript for couple of months. But this time it’s different because…
I know what to write!
It’s right there – in front of me. I love my story. I know what’s happening. All my characters are alive. There is nothing to stop me but as soon as I sit down at my keyboard, fingers hovering, it’s … BLANK.
Over the last weeks I’ve tried all the things that normally work. Reading similar books, reading different books, trying a different story, starting in the middle, ignoring it, starring at it, making myself write*, watching movies, listening to music, reading what I have, revising, making notes, playing stuff out in my head and yet every time it’s… BLANK!
Have you been there?
How did you get past it?
