I recently read a great post about writers block over at Chuck Wendig's blog and I encourage you to go read it. Be warned, there are lots of bad words but all used oh, so appropriately...
So. What did you think? I especially liked how Chuck labeled the various aspects of what we call writers block, because it doesn't always manifest the same way, does it? Doubt in myself was a problem for me in the work I'm currently revising, Peace & Forgiveness. Right around the half way mark I just couldn't persevere even though I knew where I was going. I'd lost interest and that meant my readers would likely lose interest, too. So I did exactly what Chuck suggested. I went back to the beginning to see where I'd lost the magic. And I found it and finished the book.
Now I get to revise...but that's a story for another day.
How do you feel about writers block? What do you do when it rears its ugly misshapen head? Did any of Chuck's words ring true with you?
