Marcia Carrington writes about the human condition, exploring what makes people tick, but in an upbeat and optimistic tone. She is an interested observer of popular culture, and fan of cinema from all eras and countries, especially from the 1930-1970s. Marcia is also a long-time soap opera viewer, watching daytime, and night time serials from a very young age.

Marcia is also a food connoisseur, with a particular love of chocolate, and coffee. The morning coffee has always been a staple for Marcia, and something which she cannot do without. There is just something about the fresh aroma of coffee early in the morning, and anytime for that fact, which proves irresistible to her.

Marcia can be contacted on Twitter, and you can also visit her on

I might work on another book, or do some reading to give myself some space, and gain perspective on it. I believe in many instances that writer's block can originate if we are feeling tired or are extremely busy, and the mind, and body, are not machines, and need their rest and time to recuperate.

Everyone is different in their reactions and actions, but once the writer is rested, the inspiration should return, and the writer's block phase should end. It is something that everyone goes through at one point or another, but is not a cause for worry. (less)

If you have an idea, write it down, don't let it roost in your head too long, and begin to develop it. Once you start writing, other ideas start proposing themselves to you, and this is the exciting, thrilling, and unpredictable nature of writing which will suck you in, and weave its magical spell on you!
