I've been stuck. Since around the beginning of April. And now it's time to get unstuck.
As I was sort of sketching out this week of blog posts, I had it in my head that by Friday I'd be able to say that I was once again writing. But, things didn't quite work out that way.
But such is life, right?
So, maybe this weekend I'll pull out my WBW file and just see what I can do...
What? You don't know what a WBW file is?
WBW stands for Writer's Block Workshop. It's a thing I started years ago for days when I wanted to write, but for one reason or another, I didn't have anything to write. It's where I whine about how I don't know what to do.
I moan about characters. Plot. Things that are not working. Or things I want to be writing. I just write out what I'm thinking and what I'm feeling.
The funny thing is, once I give myself permission to just write about the things that aren't working, they suddenly do.
It's just a matter of sitting down and starting. Again.
Have you got any good tricks to get you started?
