Go for a walk, and think about your characters, let them 'talk' freely. Sometimes when you are blocked it means your story has a 'knot' in it, and you need to go back and unravel the story to a point where your writing was free and easy. We all go off down the wrong road at times, and sometimes you need to backtrack. Hope this is some help. I don't know where you live, but I hope the books will be available to you one day. Best wishes, Kate(less)

“The world is violent and mercurial--it will have its way with you. We are saved only by love--love for each other and the love that we pour into the art we feel compelled to share: being a parent; being a writer; being a painter; being a friend. We live in a perpetually burning building, and what we must save from it, all the time, is love.”
Tennessee Williams

I'd escape to the South of France with 'Bonjour Tristesse' and enjoy sitting in the sun in a bustling, carefree cafe by the sea watching people and the world go by.

Hi Steve - thanks, Goodreads is a lot of fun (if, as an author, you can resist the temptation to check out the reviews of your own books!). Look forward to seeing your recommendations. K
