Samantha has an Honours Degree in English Literature and taught English for many years in Asia and Australia. She is the author of wartime dramas Another Time and Place, and The Officer’s Affair.

An inability to put words on the page can stem from a number of sources - it might just be due to tiredness or the stresses of life, or it may be that the novel has taken a turn I didn't foresee which has left me uncertain where to go next.

Generally speaking, I just try to write through it. Even when I know what I'm writing isn't good, often it will eventually start to flow again. Sometimes though, I just take a break from it: a walk, a nap, some yoga, a movie, depending on how I feel. And I usually find that the next time I sit down to write, the words are a little easier to find.(less)
