There's no such thing. If the current story isn't flowing, work on another one for a bit. Plumbers don't get plumber's block. Writers write.

However, I do have tips for keeping the mind engaged or warming up the brain juice. One is to write a 26-word story in which each word starts with the next letter of the alphabet. Or write a microfiction inspired by a favorite song title.(less)

The Caliban Cycle will be a series of horror novels about a young magician's adventures. The first book, "Giants in the Earth," which has Lovecraftian themes, should be out in the summer of 2015. Book 2 in the spring of 2016. In between will be a project I've also been writing notes on, which is a steampunk adventure in the American Wild West; in this alternate history, the Confederacy and Union have an uneasy truce, Texas is a sovereign nation, and the Indian Territories are patrolled by Souix warriors in airships.(less)
