If I run into a wall on a project, while my subconscious or conscious mind sorts out a fix for it, I work on another project. I always have multiple projects going, so I never run into one of those blocks some authors report about where they don't write for days, weeks, or months because they're blocked on one story. I just move to another project until the answer comes (which doesn't usually take long). Not stressing about the wall is critical. Stress destroys creativity.

Seriously though, the thing I love most about being a writer is having the ability to share the stories that run through my head. I love to write. The process itself is therapeutic and enjoyable for me, even if I do sometimes procrastinate when I see a particularly nasty emotional scene coming up. I don't like to hurt my characters. Usually. There are a couple though.... he he(less)

Photo by "Nelos" of Adobe StockWhat a year! Hopefully not one I'll ever have to repeat.

Fabulous information. My only complaint is that it needed MORE. But it gave me a good starting point with some research and led me to more sources that fleshed out the information I needed.

“Which would give her an ulcer first? All the aspirin and prescription pain medication she took, or Jack Carlton? Then again, that left only one cause, since he was the reason she needed the drugs to begin with.”
Dawn M. Turner, In God's Time

“Jack watched Tara glide around the dance floor with the best man, a knot of jealousy threatening to strangle him. Just the phrase 'best man' raised his ire. Who had come up with that turn of phrase anyway?”

Robert Frost
