Many people love to read a great fantasy book. I love to live it too! When I am not glued to my keyboard busily writing my next work, I can be found clad head to foot in armor, LARPing like a mad man.

I have developed a few methods of dealing with writers block. My response depends on the type of difficulty I am having.
