Hi! Bobbi here.

I specialize in media creative writing: developing/writing online games and MMORPGs, books, comics, animation, and other products that tie into film and television shows, as well as the development and creation of new tie-in products. I've written everything from Nickelodeon’s RIDE novelizations and Disney's PIXIE HOLLOW MMO to interactive ebooks based on the Mooshka doll line and an original non-fiction text published by Heinemann entitled WRITING IS ACTING: HOW TO IMPROVE THE WRITER’S ONPAGE PERFORMANCE. I've also self-published—an original horror novel that involves the Peter Pan mythos entitled HOOKED (Publishers Weekly gave it a great review!).

You can find my entire resume and cover gallery at http://www.BobbiJGWeiss.com

Okay, I'm cheating on this one, cuz I'm asking myself the question! But I don't know where else to put the info.

I write what are called WRITERobservs on my Twitter account @BobbiJGWeiss (I've also begun to repost them on my WRITERobservs Pinterest board). They're short bits of my writing knowledge/tips/advice, original writing-related jokes and... well, they're writerly observations. They always come with a related image, and I've currently posted 439 of them. I put up new ones just about every day, and I encourage you to check them out because they're fun. And free. Fun AND free is good, no?(less)

If for some reason I still feel stuck, though, I'll watch part of a movie that's similar in some way to what I'm trying to write—that often works. If my block involves not having any ideas to write about, it's usually a sign that I'm "empty." That's my term for "I have no ideas because I have nothing to say." Maybe I've written a lot and I just need a break. Or maybe I just need to let my creative backbrain stew for awhile. If the creativity's not there today, it will be there tomorrow. It's not gone. It just needs a rest. While it rests, I read a lot and watch movies with good solid plots. Creativity is a beast, so when it's depleted, I feed it!

The bottom line, however, is that writer's block is, in my experience, not a block at all but FEAR. Fear of failure, fear of expression, fear of something. The activities I mentioned above can help me deal with the fear by DOING something about it. That's the key, at least for me.(less)

WORLDBUILDING: Mind Your Neeps and Tatties

(Note: I wrote this blog for writers, but readers should find it interesting as well.)

When you’re writing fantasy or science fiction, you have a lot of worldbuilding to do. Some writers dread this process or are even afraid of it. They doubt their abilities to create something so huge as a WORLD.

Hint: you just do it one step at a time. If you do test writings for your story (and shame on you if... Read more of this blog post »
