An inability to continue writing can be a sign of insufficient motivation because of lack of a deadline, waning enthusiasm for a project, or distraction by something else (like a different writing project). It can also be a sign of some type of problem in the project (you don't know what happens next, you don't like the status of the current draft, you've backed the characters into a corner plotwise and don't know how to get them out, etc.). Short-term block can also occur when mixing editing functions (fixing already written sections of the project), then turning immediately to fresh, blank-page writing, which is a more creative endeavor. Try writing something else to distract you and get you back into a creative writing routine. If you have a plot problem, talk it out with a sympathetic friend. While your friend is unlikely to solve your plot issue for you (as they won't know your characters and plot as well as you), just framing the situation to ask the question can be revealing. Also, explaining why their uninformed, simplistic solutions won't work can give you insight into what the real solution is.(less)

Newsletter Links Replacing Blog Posts

For a number of years I've been posting blog entries here and on Goodreads. About six months ago, though, I started putting out a monthly newsletter with articles, updates on my work-in-progress, book reviews, promotions, and news about upcoming releases, conventions, and presentations, etc. Rather than duplicate the same information over multiple platforms, I've decided to simply archive links to Read more of this blog post »
