Writer's Block is Bulls***
Don't know what to write?
Staring at white?
Right now, I have nothing new to say. Nothing I want to say. And nothing comes to mind when it's Thursday and the blog is due.
So I'm writing about it.
How do you cure writer's block?
I've heard several ideas.
Start with "I wish I knew what to write." Type it. Type it a few times.
Minds are not quiet. It takes Zen masters years to quiet their minds, so you have no excuse.
Here's an example:
I want to write about my gay paranormal characters but I have no idea where to take them. It could be the plot is weak or maybe these particular characters are not necessary but I really want to show them kissing. Zable would be the shocked "cat" and Theun would be the strong top. I could see Zable leading Theun down a corridor and inviting him into his dwelling expecting nothing.
I could keep going and I have before.
But another reason why I get uninspired is because there is either something going on in the plot that my subconsciousness knows won't work or I've been on the same project too long and need to finish.
But these are not excuses. If it's the former reason I figure it out. If it's the latter I continue. Even if I'm not inspired. Because writer's block is bullshit. You can write. You might not know what to write about right now, but it's called BICHOK. But-In-Chair-Hands-On-Keyboard.
The only way to get better is to write. Even when you don't wanna.
