Ah, the universal problem for a writer.
Favorite ways to get your story moving again! This month's topic:
It (writers' block) often appears when the story is running smoothly....that is, until either your hero or heroine refuses to go along with your plotline. This is when 'storyland' begins to get ugly! 😕
What steps do I take? (Whining, crying, or insisting your characters conform, is pointless.--I learned that the hard way).
☕ Coffee, a brief break in my garden, or listening to calming music will often work.
An idea 💭will pop into my head--or one of the 'characters will tell me what will happen next.
Other times, nothing seems to work.
This is known as the "Dark Moment" when All Is Lost!
Since I write multiple novels simultaneously, I'll pull out another story to edit, work on a blog post, or simply leave the story alone for a day or two. 💻
I may leave the story alone, but subconsciously, I'm still thinking about it and dreaming.
I can't say I always come up with a way to complete a story, but I do most of the time.
Please visit my other author friends and find out how they get their stories moving again.
An author's favorite moment?
Typing "The End."
Happy Reading, everyone!
