That way, if you get stuck, bored, or agitated by one project, you can take a jab at another. That's my main way of dealing with it. That and pay checks! If I don't write, I don't get paid.

Don't forget that social media is a form of writing. So if you're still posting blogs and thoughtful ideas on FB and so on, you are still writing. I often think that social media has distracted me greatly from my actual writing books work writing. I don't think, I know! But it's also a necessary evil these days. Limit your social media time if you find yourself going down the rabbit hole.

If you think you're suffering writer's block, don't despair. Sometimes you need to take a break to let the well refill. Thinking about stories and characters is still part of the writing process. So is research.

Jot ideas down in a notebook or in a computer program. Sometimes the act of note taking will turn into more writing.

Give yourself a deadline. Be firm but not unreasonable. Life happens.

Set goals such as trying to get into a specific anthology. That will have a deadline you must follow so there's no time for writer's block.

There are several types of writers. If you're a full time writer, you don't have time for writer's block. There are bills to pay. You must push through it somehow. Money is a good carrot.(less)

I like being able to make my own schedule which was great while child-rearing. The control freak part of me enjoys creating worlds and seeing what characters will do to each other. I enjoy meeting people who have read my work. I like speaking on panels and giving advice.(less)

For Taurus, I had made notes a few years ago when I created the Bible for the series that I wanted the story to revolve around a movie crew that comes to town along with Dorothy's favourite actor.
