Here is my cure for writer's block from a guest post I wrote at Writer'sDigest.com (to read the entire post click here: http://goo.gl/jEgzSx)

How do I get past writer’s block? I write to express, not to impress. I don’t believe in writer’s block. The inability to move forward on a work is my subconscious telling me something important. By focusing on what I want to express, I look more deeply at my subject and I discover that I don’t yet know enough about my characters, setting, or the scene’s motivation to write with confidence. So off I go to research and get what I need. Or the phrase (write to express, not to impress) helps me realize I truly don’t have anything important to say here and that this scene is unnecessary or should simply be a brief transition to the next scene where something important does happen.(less)

Making a connection, feeling understood, sharing passions--it's why we write and so rewarding to find someone else who gets it.(less)

“Without death, life would have no boundaries and our days would not be so precious. My mother was a firm believer in the common sense of nature.”

“Bradshaw especially didn't like the use of the word "experiment" in regard to social conditions. Experiments included of necessity, expendable components. Failure was a precursor to success. When the components were human, who had the audacity to use, lose them, toss them away?”
Bernadette Pajer, Fatal Induction
