About this author

Once upon a time, Yzabel Ginsberg made a deal with the God of Dreams, whom she might have swindled out of a few extra seeds of wild imagination. From her current home somewhere on the road to Paris, this strange French woman always clad in black weaves many webs of stories, whether on paper or through the delicate art of online storytelling. Rumour has it that she will only stop when Death comes to claim her, but even that is less than certain. In the meantime, you can follow her at http://www.facebook.com/YzabelGinsberg.

Hey, that makes it two questions! ;)

1) It depends on what "writer's block" entails. In my case, it very seldom stems from a lack of ideas, and has more to do with wanting to do something else more than I want to write. So I basically have to kick myself in the butt, come up with self-imposed deadlines, and tell my so-called Muse to stuff it and get back to work. (I don't like calling that thing a Muse either, come to think of it. It's too dignified a word.)

2) Both, actually. I loosely build a frame around what I consider "the turning-point scenes", and start writing from there. But if I come up with an idea that would make the story better, and/or would allow me to get rid of a plot hole (hello, Slicer, I'm waving at you here), I rearrange things within my "frame". It *has* to be better, though. I'm not doing that with just any idea.(less)

Grow a pair of virtual big, bad, hairy balls.

Seriously.

Because once you have those, you're basically free to sail wherever your writing takes you. 1-star reviews? Harsh critiques? Beta-readers pointing out huge plot holes? Editors leaving a ton of red comments on every page? Bring it on, baby! I can take everything.(less)

Actually, it's been available for a solid week, but I don't like posting everything at once everywhere (blog, Facebook, Twitter...), so I refrained from doing so on Goodreads.

Until now (thank you, Captain Obvious).
