The days when I sit down to write and nothing comes out, it's not "writer's block," it's more a feeling of "Gee, I'd like to be doing something else right now." But I can't just get up and do something else otherwise nothing will get written.

Writing takes self-discipline and I think the lack of that discipline gets interpreted as writer's block. The only way to deal with it is to get the butt in the chair and write anything to get the juices flowing. The first couple paragraphs may be horrible, but as the story starts playing out in my head, the writing improves.

To be a writer, you can't just wait for inspiration to arrive out of the blue and you can't make excuses when you don't write. You need to sit down (preferably every day, if possible at the same time every day) and write. There are so many stories out there, I can't imagine not having anything to write about.(less)

Don't get me wrong, there are some days I hate writing, but to be honest, this is the only job I've had in my life where I am glad to wake up early to get started on a project. Second to loving my job, getting to hear from happy readers is very rewarding. (less)

Aside from landing a huge publishing contract that includes a ginormous advance and an all-star-cast movie deal, nothing makes a writer’s heart happier than to receive a five-star review. That’s not to say writers would complain about a three- or four-star review – after all, we’re just thrilled to have people reading our ramblings – but the five-star review is such a brag-worthy ego boost.
