For me, I guess it means when I'm struggling to write a particular scene or chapter and it just isn't happening, or when I can't work out how to get from one plot point to another. When this happens I usually start writing a completely different scene from further ahead in the novel and that usually unblocks something and enables me to return to the tricky bit. Or I try writing something else entirely - a piece of non-fiction or a short story perhaps. But if by 'writer's block' you mean lack of ideas, I don't usually have a problem with that! In fact, my problem is often the complete opposite. I have several different ideas all competing with each other for my attention! But on those rare occasions when I can't think of a new plot, I tend to take some time off from writing and immerse myself in someone else's book, or watch a film or TV drama. That usually re-sets my brain into a narrative mode again!(less)

“All the significant moments in our life hinge on choices made in the blink of an eye.”
Lesley Kara, The Rumour

“Rumours are like seeds, scattered on the wind. There’s no telling where they’ll land, but land they will. Settling in cracks and crevices, the roots take hold. The seeds sprout. It doesn’t matter if they’re true or false. The more times they’re spoken, the faster and stronger they grow. Like beanstalks, waving in the air.”
Lesley Kara, The Rumour

“I love his idea that we’re nourished by all the shitty things that happen to us in life, that we become better people as a result.”
Lesley Kara, The Rumour
