The thing that helps me the most is to give myself a daily word count and then try and stick to it. Uh oh, see what I just wrote? I said, "try." I should say, "I will stick to it." What's helpful to remember about writer's block is that it is usually your own head getting in the way. Several things besides a daily word count helps tricking me into writing: writing late at night, writing when I'm rushed, writing on little scraps of paper when I'm in odd places, like going through the car wash or waiting at the doctor's office.(less)

Finding Pony by Kara Lucas
"Finding Pony is very well written; I couldn't put it down. It does an incredible job of giving the reader a glimpse into the world of many kids who are struggling to stay alive. It's a must read."

“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”

Beverly McClure Hi Kara. Thanks for the friend request. I'm happy to meet you. Those quotes sound intriguing. I haven't read Where She Went yet but have a copy for when I find the time. Soon, I hope.
