Actually I find Nora Roberts's advice to be excellent -- sometimes you just have to put your hands on the keyboard and trust the *girls in the basement* to show up.
If truly blocked, it can be because I took a wrong turning. If it is because there is intense emotional turmoil in other parts of my life, this can be a signal to refill the well and do lots of unrelated reading. But because writing is a bit like breathing for me, putting my hands on the keyboard can work.(less)
Michelle Styles There are several great things. One of the things I treasure most is hearing from readers that they enjoyed my books.

Right I am in Year three Month 8, the last two days.
Things are going slower because I took the decision (or rather my body did!) that 6x a week of both the MS and DC was too much. I have gone to 5x week for the MS and DC plus a longer DC session on the sixth day. The seventh day remains a rest day. And my body has thanked me.

Short non fiction on women in Early English society. Part of the book's problem is that it is far too short. Herbert neglects many potential subjects such as Acha, Eanflead etc and concentrates primarily on Bathild, Hild and Aethelfled.

Thoroughly enjoyable YA book on Anglo Saxon England. Lots of period detail and a focus on the domestic. A little slow in places and a bit predictable but in general a page turner. Just enough intrigue to hold attention. Wulfrun was a great heroine.
