B.C. Johnson lives in Southern California with his beautiful wife Gina, his fluffy/angry Corgi-mix Luna, and his destructive Viking sons Dash and Wyatt. He writes about snarky characters being snarky while supernatural things try to eat them. When he’s not playing video games, watching Marvel movies, or just generally being a ninth-level dork, he’s thinking about doing all that stuff. All of his books, blogs, essays, and manifestos can be read at bc-johnson.com.

Write in that genre - it'll keep your energy up, plus nobody knows the cliches better than you. You can dodge those landmines and provide the reader with a truly unique experience. (less)

It's a really lame answer, but it's completely true. "Writer's block" is really "writer's trip." What I mean by that is it's just a little stumble, usually caused by self-confidence or even just a bad day of writing. Get your feet and keep walking.

You think what your writing sucks, so you think you suck, so you sit quietly and contemplate your suckitude instead of just working. Every 1st draft sucks - you're part of a long, proud tradition. Hold on to that comfort and keep writing. You can fix it later.

You can't fix writing you never wrote, though.(less)

DEADGIRL free because we're all bored

We're all stuck at home so I figured I ought to help out in my very limited, no-useful-skill capacity.

I'm giving away free ebook or PDF copies of Deadgirl to anyone who wants one. Just message me here or on Twitter (https://twitter.com/BobbyCJohnson) or anywhere else you can reach me and I'll be happy to send you a copy in your preferred format.

Stay safe and sane, everyone. Read more of this blog post »
