However I do keep in mind the words of those more wise and disciplined than I. One of my favorite ways of working through writer's block comes from Laurie Halse Anderson. She encouraged a group at her workshop to go on art dates. She noted that when our own creative tank is empty, it needs to be refilled. So fill it on dates with art at galleries, movies, museums, concerts, musicals... wherever and however you can expose yourself to the creativity of others, do it. This will overflow into your own work. I LOVE THIS!

Aside from art dates, I know to battle writer's block by continuing to write. Even if it's total junk... the gems may be just beneath. Write every day, whatever comes to mind, and eventually you'll find yourself back in a great groove. My greatest life seasons of productive (and good) writing have come from this initial discipline.

I have a memoir that is in editing about the murder of my mother in law (while my husband and I slept in the house where she was murdered). I am revising a YA novel which is really exciting and you'll just have to wait and see what it's about. AND I'm writing a book on simplicity- the social experiment my family chose to live in 2010 where we didn't buy anything new for an entire year. :) Whew! I'm busy! (Or, should be, between raising four kids!)(less)

“Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts. And once the pain subsides, the gifts remain. These gifts are life's true treasures, bought at great price, but cannot be acquired in any other way.” —Steve Goodier, author”
Marcy Pusey, Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children

“If you are considering foster parenting or adopting, are already in it and drowning, or want to throw a lifesaver to a foster parenting/adoptive friend, then this is your must-read.”
Marcy Pusey, Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children

“Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts.

Marcy Pusey, Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children

“However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“...for my greatest skill has been to want but little.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
