For me, writer's block is just a symptom of something else. Like right now, I'm writing the middle chapter of Hero 3 and it's like pulling teeth and every word is an effort to get on the page. Some might call that writer's block, I call it a sign that something in this chapter (or a chapter previous to it) isn't working. All I have to do is figure out what that something is and my case of writer's block is gone.

How you go about finding that something though, that's another question.

If you let yourself think of writer's block as a mysterious thing that comes along without reason, you can't do anything about it. On the other hand, see it as a symptom and there's always a cure.(less)

Another lifetime. Another war they couldn’t win because her sister and Empress fell for the same pretty face.

Suun had kept Nova alive long enough for the paramedics to find them. The woman and her partner had both had the calm, stoic expressions of those who had seen it all, but Byrne had recognised the slightly too-wide eyes and pale sheen of shock as they’d half-jogged into the gym showers. ...

“Just because they say it, doesn't mean you have to believe it.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“All my life, everyone has used my 'ilness' as an excuse to take my choices away. I've been locked up, told what to eat, who I can be friends with, where I can go to school. They even forced those damn meds down my throat." She paused, breathing hard. "It's my life. Even if I'm sick, I'm the only one who should get to choose what I do and how I do it.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“Why do I feel like this is a ploy?"
"You're paranoid?"
"Or," she said as she walked back around her desk and sat, "maybe I just know my daughter too well.”
Belinda Crawford, Hero

“The first draft is your “vomit onto the keyboard” draft, wherein your task is to simply keep moving and outrun your doubts.”
Sean Platt, Write. Publish. Repeat.

“They'd all been crackpots back then, those first-gen colonists, but Woolsey had topped them all. No one else would have thought to mix a little bit of rat with a little bit of leopard and a whole lot of alien to create something big and strong and scary enough to walk the surface with impunity.”
