Welcome to April's A to Z Blog Challenge! I struggled with what to write about...parenting tips? When I wrote them it sounded like I was telling people, not advising people, and I wasn't happy with it. Self Publishing Route? I JUST began that so not much to add there. I did writing last year but those posts are so far back, I figured I'd do writing/reading this time.
Thanks for reading. Would love any thoughts or comments. Feel free to link to your blog!
A: Always be Reading or Writing.
Throwing my laptop against the wall I hoped to break down writer's block. My laptop slid to the floor in three seperate pieces. Writer's Block feels taller and more menacing than the The North Wall.
Okay, I didn't actually do that but I have felt like it. That's when I close the laptop and walk away. I watch one of the few tv shows I love (The Goldbergs, Big Bang Theory) and try not to think. Then, I find a book to read in the genre I am writing about (YA/New Adult Romance) and try to read the whole thing before I pick up the laptop again. Sometimes, this helps me relax enough or stimulate new ideas that will chip away at the wall o' Writer's Block. Reading also helps you grow as a writer. I just read a book about how you should read six books in your genre, takes notes about what you liked, how you were drawn into the story or characters and use that as notes for your own book.
What helps you over come Writer's Block?
