Lichen Craig wrote non-fiction professionally for over twenty-five years before the fire overtook her to write a first novel. Encouraged by the enthusiasm of test readers despite the controversial subject matter, she took the plunge into publication of "Gentlemen's Game". It has been met with some controversy, a lot of discussion, and overall enthusiastic response and demands for a second novel!

When I hear someone say that, I assume they are 1)lazy 2)fearful or lying to themselves about what they want. Writing is a job like any other. People at other jobs don't say, "I'm blocked today, I can't work." The reason people fail at writing as a career is because they indulge in ideas like "Writer's Block". To answer though, on days when I am having trouble getting it to flow, I write anyway. There are many exercises you can do to kick your brain into gear. Also, it's helpful to have two or three projects going at once, and switching between them. (less)

Confronting Writer's Block . . .for Good!


As an editor, I can't tell you how often I hear writers talk about "writer's block". Over several decades of working with writers, I have come to believe there is no such thing. Rather, "writer's block" is a collection of issues that are usually very easily resolved. In particular, an editor you can trust comes in handy when you are trying to sort out why you can't seem to progress in a writer Read more of this blog post »
