Too often I just slammed the laptop shut and went out in search of chocolate. However, lately I've made a few changes that have obliterated writer's block.
If I sound confident, I mean to. You can't defeat the enemy by being hesitant or indecisive.
First, I obligated myself to hard deadlines with a writing coach. (It's too easy to succumb to writer's block if your word count/output doesn't matter.)
Second, I've brought my faith to the table (or the desk...). When I feel stuck I remind myself that I've felt this way before. It's just a feeling. I know this is what God created me to do, so I just do it, expecting "the gift" to do its thing. Don't get me wrong; this isn't something that comes easily, and certainly not without prayer. But having this confidence has been a game-changer for me.
Third, I do just what all the books say to do. Get creative, try something new, get a different perspective and come back to it. I was recently dreading a chapter I had to write. I knew the story was lacking something, so after a bit of brainstorming I introduced a new character. I wrote the next chapter feeling energized and excited about the story again.
I guess the main thing is to keep at it. It's only a block if you quit.(less)

While it's an amazing feeling, finishing a book, to me there is nothing like the actual writing--sitting with my laptop and a cup of coffee, scenes coming to life on the page. In that moment I know I'm doing what I was created to do. (less)

Waiting?

We are all waiting.
Waiting for the next update.
Waiting in our homes. Waiting to get back to work, to get back to each other.
Waiting to put this in the rearview mirror.

As Christians, we know that God is at work in this waiting. 
Is it a judgment? A mercy? A call to repent? To pray? To return?

We are waiting.
Waiting for answers, for understanding.
Waiting for normal.
Waiting for healing, for deliveran
