It's Wednesday and guess what happens for us tomorrow?? We go back to work *cries, kicks, screams*.
But in the mean time, we're hanging out with the ladies of YA Highway for another Road Trip Wednesday. This week's topic is:
How do you beat writer's block?
We have two major steps that we go through in order to kick writer's block a**. They go a lil' something like this:
1.) Leave it be. You know the saying: a watched pot doesn't boil? Well a mulled over, stared at, stalked manuscript will also not write itself. If we're stuck, we leave that idea alone. Whether it's writing something else (a poem, a short story, plotting a new idea), exercising, or our favorite past times, eating, and watching TV :)
2.) Talk it out. Just like when you're joints are achy and you have to shake them out...when a story is blocked, just talk it out. Preferably with your amazing writing partner/cousin. Don't have one? You can hire me or Pam for the job :) Really, this works wonders. Pam worked out a major revision point for Wants just by talking about it out loud to me.
We're always looking for more advice, peeps. What do you all do to beat writer's block?
